Keto Chicken Parmesan

Keto Chicken Parmesan is a delicious low-carb and high-fat meal that’s perfect for those following a ketogenic diet. The chicken is coated with a crispy almond flour and parmesan cheese breading and topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese, making it a filling and satisfying dish. Plus, it’s easy to make and can be served with a side of zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice for a complete meal.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix together the almond flour, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried basil, salt, and black pepper.
  3. In a separate shallow dish, beat the eggs.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the beaten eggs, then coat it in the almond flour mixture, pressing the mixture onto the chicken to ensure it sticks.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
  6. Remove the skillet from the heat and top each chicken breast with a few tablespoons of marinara sauce and 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  7. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the chicken is cooked through.
  8. Serve hot with a side of zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice.
