Gluten Free Chicken Francese

Must Try

How about preparing that Chicken Cutlet in a new way, Gluten Free Chicken Francese?? Hey guys! It’s really easy and a quick fix!


  • 1 lb. Boneless Chicken Breast ( also called cutlets by many of us)
  • ½ cup Gluten Free Bisquick
  • Dash of Salt & Pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbl Butter
  • 1/4 cup White Wine. (Alcohol cooks off so only flavor remains)
  • ½ cup to possibly more Chicken Broth. G-Free of course
  • Juice of ½ Lemon
  • Fresh Parsley leaves, chopped as a garnish.
  • Optional: Several Crimini Mushrooms or White Button Mushrooms.

This recipe was prepared for a traditional kitchen, but you can transition it to Gluten Free as I did with Gluten Free Bisquick and G-F Broth.


Ok, first, on a cutting board slice the cutlets if they are too big & chunky. Mine were turned into 4 in or so. After cutting, place between 2 layers of Plastic Wrap and pound a little flatter.

Take 2 dishes, one deep enough to beat 2 eggs, and 1 flat for dredging the meat in the Bisquick. First dredge each slice in the Bisquick, then coat in the beaten egg, then go back to the Bisquick and dredge there a second time. Place each coated piece on a clean plate until all are done.

Heat the EVOO and 2 tbl Butter in a skillet or fry pan. I like ceramic coated pans, myself for things like this. When butter & oil have warmed, place in the chicken slices and on a heat that’s not too high ( you could burn the butter if it’s too hot) sautee 2 minutes on each side.

Remove to a plate and set aside. If you were adding the mushrooms to the recipe, now you can sautee sliced mushrooms for a minute or two. Then remove those also to a plate. Add the remaining ingredients (except the Parsley) to the bits of chicken that may have remained and flavors that are in the pan. If it’s too dry, then add 1 tbl more of butter. But mine didn’t need any additional. Use your judgment.

Now replace the chicken ( and mushrooms, if used) in the liquid and cover. Simmer for about 3 minutes longer.

Serve immediately and garnish with the chopped Parsley Flakes. This is great served next to a swirl of G-Free Spaghetti. Lemony & Light! This is so quick, you’ll love it whenever short on time or whenever you’d like Chicken Cutlets in another way other than grilled or breaded with bread crumbs or in a sauce. Try it!
