Rosemary Romano Chicken

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Rosemary Romano Chicken rocks! This quick and easy chicken entree can be oven ready in about 5-10 minutes! No kidding. 4c Gluten free Italian bread crumbs, romano cheese, rosemary, Italian seasoning, fresh garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper comprise this great chicken casserole. I keep these gluten free bread crumbs in the freezer so I can use them any time and not go stale. Also, since I prefer to eat gluten free as much as possible, this enables me to have a nice coating on the chicken without using regular bread crumbs (which almost always use high fructose corn syrup).

We had company over for dinner earlier this month. I served this tasty chicken dish along with Antipasto Salad, Fresh Summer Veggie Bake and Strawberry Shortcake. They liked the fact that the main dinner menu was so healthy so they didn’t feel so guilty indulging in the Strawberry Shortcake. 🙂 The chicken really turned out incredibly tasty.

It is amazing how many recipes turn out well using basic ingredients and leftovers I need to get rid of. I had a small block of Romano cheese leftover from some other recipe. Plus, I knew rosemary tastes really well with chicken so I thought I would give this a try modeling it a little after my Parmesan Chicken Bake. It did turn out really well with everyone enjoying it, so this recipe is definitely a keeper!

If you’re looking for a simple yet delicious chicken entree that doesn’t require a lot of work, then Rosemary Romano Chicken is for you! It’s a great recipe to make when you want to put several dishes in the oven at once. It could probably even work well in a toaster oven if you are trying to conserve electricity. Regardless of what kind of sides you choose to serve it with, I guarantee you’ll want to make this tasty chicken entree again and again. I know we do!

      Hi Shari. It really is a tasty way to use rosemary especially if you have some growing in your yard. Hope you and your family enjoy it. Have a great week.

    Hi Teresa: I plan to make your “Rosemary Romano Chicken” tomorrow evening. It sounds and looks delectable!
    I have some lovely fresh rosemary which I’m anxious to use. Rosemary pairs well with chicken, and it’s one of my favorite herbs… so I’m sure that we’ll enjoy this chicken dish.
    Hey Teresa, I want to tell you that your blog is the only one which I usually refer to whenever I need an easy, quick, healthy & delicious chicken dish…. so please keep them coming.

      Hi Angelina. So sorry it has taken so long for me to respond. I accidentally deleted all my files so we’ve been trying to get everything restored. Ugh! You made my day when you said how much you like looking for healthy delicious chicken dishes. I greatly appreciate your support. I have at least ten really easy one-dish chicken entrees that are easy and delicious. Basically you place all the meat and veggies in one dish and then sprinkle a light sauce over top. So good. Check out my chicken archives for these great recipes.
