So if you’re like me you love a really crunchy chicken tender, mozzarella stick or crispy baked avocado fry. To get that crispy/crunchy but healthy effect you need to use Panko bread crumbs. Now I’ve showed you how to make your own instead of spending a bajillion dollars on a teensy container in the store however I never shared with you how to make them Gluten Free…
One of my dearest friends suffers from Gluten allergies and she shared this with eons ago. Now I’ve tried making this with gluten free bread and um yeah… let’s just say I threw away more than I cared to. It just never had the same taste.
Now what I’m about to share is really, REALLY difficult and time consuming. You’ll break a sweat, your back will hurt and you’re curse me from sun up to down with how tedious this is but it’s totally worth it.
Get a box of Rice Chex Gluten-Free cereal and either a baggie/rolling pin, blender or food processor. Take about a minute or 2 and you’re done.
I know! That was so rough, huh? Would you like a beer or soda to cool off from that work out? *giggle*
this is literally as simple as putting some in a food processor, giving it a few pulses and that’s it.
HEY! Would I kid you?! LOL
Now I’ve tried this with both Corn and Rice Chex cereals and the tastes vary slightly. It’s truly your call on this.
All I know is that this stuff is SUPER amazing on baked chicken tenders with a honey dijon glaze! I mean SERIOUSLY insanely good! Try these with THIS recipe for Honey Dijon Panko Crusted Chicken Tenders. It’s OMG to-die-for!Print
- 3 cups Gluten Free Chex Cereal
- Place the cereal in a food processor/plastic baggie or blender.
- In a processor/blender, pulse 10-12 times or until desired crumbs. You don’t want a powder.
- If using a plastic baggie, remove the air and seal. Take a mallet or rolling pin and crush.
- Store in a covered container.
This will yield 1 cup of ‘Panko’ crumbs
I’ve tried this with Corn and Rice Chex Gluten-Free cereals and the flavor does vary slightly. I personally prefer the Rice flavor better.
