Quiona & black bean “chip”chicken parmeasen {GF}

Hello beautiful friends, how’s your day treating you?
I just got back from coffee, pedi + shopping with my friend Larissa 🙂 nothings better than that!

but wanted to pop in & share this recipe with you.

..I know that title is a mouth full! but that’s what it is! I recently made chicken parm with one of my favorite chips from trader joes, quinoa & black bean! We discovered them back in the summer and they paired so well with salsa, that we started getting them almost every time. Such a good combo!

There’s so many wonderful wonderful foods out there that I LOVE. especially things with breading. But, my stomach doesn’t always appreciate it. But sometimes ya just need it. But, if I can help it.. I will make an alternate. Insert, quinoa + black bean tortilla chip chicken parmesan 😀

It’s so simple to make, and you’ll be glad you made it 🙂

What you need:

  • 1 lb chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • 1 1/2 cups of trader joes quinoa & black bean chips — optional! can use bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free spaghetti sauce (I used prego mushroom & garlic, & a little bit of trader joes)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Shaved parmesan for additional topping
  • Seasoning: salt, pepper, oregno, etc..
  • 1 egg


  • Pre-heat  your oven to 425
  • Beat the one egg in a dish big enough to place your chicken in
  • Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture
  • Pour the crushed chips onto a dinner-size plate. Roll each chicken breast in the chip mixture until fully coated on both sides or just the top if you wish!
  • Spray a different (don’t cook the chicken in the marinade dish) {9×13} baking dish cooking spray of choice
  • Place the breaded chicken breasts in the dish next to each other
  • Bake in the oven on the middle rack for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven & pour your sauce across the top.
  • Then the cheese
  • Place back in the oven and bake another 5-7 minutes .. {until the cheese starts to brown}
  • Pair with: pasta, quinoa or whatever your in the mood for!
