Chicken Parmesan

Like I mentioned in my Fiesta Friday post, hubby and I absolutely loved the homemade red sauce I made the other day, so I desperately wanted to figure out something else to make with it. Thus, this yummy Parmesan Chicken!

The tricky part was how I was going to make a low-glycemic version since I can’t use normal breadcrumbs or flour. That’s when I thought of something that is sitting in the corner of my kitchen that I haven’t experimented with much…tapioca flour. And can I just say, I love how this came out! The taste was perfect! And the texture was nice and crisp…loved it!

  1. I’ve never used tapioca flour, Lori, only tapioca pearls. I’m guessing the flour is like the pearls but just ground up? Anyhoo, it looks like a wonderful substitute for the regular flour/bread crumbs for chicken parm. This looks like it is crisp and delicious. I bet it was great!

    • I have never heard of the tapioca pearls. What is the consistency? The tapioca flour has a super smooth normal flour type texture. It really was good Ngan! I am so excited! πŸ˜€

      • Hi Lori, tapioca pearls are little white balls that get super fluffy when you cook them in a little water or coconut milk. I only use it for a Vietnamese dessert dish, and this conversation has reminded me to make it this summer to post and share with you! πŸ™‚

      • ah yes I love them so did my mother, I used to go to our wildlife area where they had lots, sad to see in captivity but sometimes good for keeping the species going. I love that old fashioned owl picture i think its from the 60’s and perhaps swedish or something, not sure, know the one i mean?
