Keto Chicken Parmesan

keto chicken parmesan - Keto Chicken Parmesan
  • 1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon cream

COATING:

  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 crushed red pepper, (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon ghee, avocado, or olive oil
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, (see note)
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Preheat oven to the broil setting.

  • If chicken breasts are thick, slice lengthwise. You want a thin breast or tenderloin. You can also pound them thin.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the egg and cream.

  • In a separate bowl, combine the pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasonings, salt, and crushed red pepper if using. Whisk together.

  • Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture and then in the pork rind mixture until well coated.

  • In a large skillet, heat the ghee or oil over medium high heat. Place chicken evenly in pan and cook for 3-5 minutes per side until coating is golden brown and until chicken is no longer pink.

  • Transfer chicken to a baking sheet and top with marinara sauce. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.

  • Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove and serve.

The type of marinara sauce does matter. Marinara sauce can be sugary so make sure you find a low sugar one like Rao’s.
