Allergy Friendly, Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Egg Free Smoked Gouda Chicken

Egg Free and Dairy Free Smoked Gouda Chicken

This allergy friendly Smoked Gouda Chicken is inspired by the classic Chicken Parmesan. I have made it allergy friendly by using coconut milk for dredging. For the cheese, I use the Smoked Gouda Slices from Daiya, making the dish dairy free. For the flour I used chickpea flour, which makes it gluten free, but any gluten free flour can be used. So far I have not seen any dairy free Parmesan which is suitable for our family. So I usually make this with Daiya cheese shreds which are dairy free. Recently Daiya introduced new flavors to their line of cheeses so I used my daughter's new favorite flavor, which is Daiya's Smoked Gouda Slices. Serve them with your favorite side or check out allergy friendly sides from this blog.
