    Lay a piece of plastic wrap on a work surface, place a chicken breast half on top and lay another piece of plastic wrap on top of that. Pound the chicken breast with a rolling pin or bottom of a heavy skillet until it is about ¼ inch think. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Put almonds in food processor and process in pulses until the almonds turn into a fine meal. Be careful not to turn it into paste. Add the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and pulse a couple more times to mix. If using almond meal, just mix the flour, cheese, salt and pepper together. Spread the mixture on a large plate. Rinse the pounded chicken breasts in water and shake off the excess. Dredge the chicken in the almond mixture, gently pressing the mixture onto the chicken. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter. Once the oil is hot and the butter melted, place two prepared chicken breast in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until they are well browned. Flip and cook for 3- 4 minutes on the other side. Remove cooked chicken breasts to a serving dish and cover with foil to keep warm. You can also place the plate in a warm oven. Repeat procedure with the remaining chicken breasts. Add the wine or chicken stock and lemon juice to the pan. Scrape the pan to incorporate all the browned bits of almond. Add the capers and cook until the sauce is reduced by about half. It should be the consistency of light syrup. Stir in the remaining butter until melted. Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts, top with chopped parsley and serve with lemon slices or wedges.

    In Italy a few years back, I noticed an abundance of menu items featuring delicious, locally raised veal. Local, humanely raised and processed veal can be a a delicious addition to the table, and makes a nice variation from the usual chicken, beef, or pork offerings.
    The rich, delicious sauce of tomato and white wine creates a moist, tender, gluten-free veal stew that is sure to liven up your table this fall and winter. Just don't invite any vegans that night.
    Ingredients:
    6 tablespoons olive oil
    2 large onions, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    3 pounds veal, trimmed and cubed
    1½ cups tomato sauce
    3/4 cup white wine
    salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:
    In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir until onion is tender. Add meat to the pot, and brown evenly.
    Stir in tomato sauce and white wine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1½ hours, or until tender.
    Serve over rice, potatoes, or gluten-free pasta.
    Makes 6 servings.

    Celiac.com 11/12/2013 - If you say you're making a really good gluten-free Veal Parmesan or Chicken Parmesan for lunch or dinner, and if you say I am invited, then we are very likely going to be friends, for my heart holds a deep and abiding love those two dishes.
    Here's a quick, easy and elegant version. I like to make it with veal, but chicken is also delicious.
    Ingredients:
    6 thin veal cutlets, about 2 1/2 ounces each OR 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved horizontally ¾ cup of potato flour, rice flour, cornstarch, or general purpose gluten-free flour ¾ cup crushed Rice Chex or gluten-free breadcrumbs ½ cup grated Romano cheese 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 large egg, lightly beaten 2 cups your favorite easy tomato sauce--canned. jarred, whatever might be in the freezer, etc. ⅓ cup olive oil 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, preferably fresh, cut 6 1/4-inch-thick slices Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste Directions:
    Combine breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan in a shallow bowl.
    Combine spices in a bowl and mix.
    Heat your oven's broiler.
    On the stove, warm the tomato sauce on a rear burner.
    On another burner, heat ½-inch of oil in large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Don't let oil get smoky. 
    Season both sides of the cutlets with the spice mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, paprika, and cayenne.
    Dredge cutlets in gluten-free flour of choice.
    Then dip cutlets in the beaten egg, then dredge in breadcrumb and cheese mixture, turning to coat both sides. Place 3 cutlets on a plate.
    Place 3 cutlets in skillet; cook until golden, 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
    Using a spatula, transfer browned cutlets to a 10x15 inch baking pan.
    Top off oil in the skillet. Cook the remaining cutlets.
    Place remaining cutlets in baking pan.
    Top each cutlet with a slice of mozzarella.
    Now, here's where I do things differently than most traditional preparation methods. Instead of lining the pan with the tomato sauce, I broil the fried cutlets alone--about 4 inches from heat source until cheese is melted and lightly browned in spots, 4 to 5 minutes.
    I serve them immediately with warm tomato sauce on the side. This makes for a crunchier cutlet and the ability to add sauce at will.
    You can also put the warm sauce on the plate and top with the broiled cutlas. Or you can do it the traditional way, by putting the sauce in the pan, then putting the cutlets and cheese in and broiling.
    However you do it, I'm sure you'll make friend with this gluten-free version of veal and chicken Parmesan.
