Keto Classic Chicken Parmesan

Everyone loves a delicious Parmesan chicken. However, it’s not very keto-friendly if you order them from the restaurant. The best way is to make your own low carb chicken Parmesan from home, which is what we will show you today.

If your chicken breast is too thick, make sure to slice it in half lengthwise so they can be well-seasoned and cooked quickly. For better results, place the breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound it evenly using a meat tenderizer.

For topping, we’ll be having marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese, along with fresh cilantro.

How To

Preheat oven at 350F.

Crack the egg into a bowl and beat it. Add the chicken breast to the bowl to coat it with the egg. Make sure all the sides of chicken are well-coated.

Mix coconut flour (or almond flour) with parmesan cheese, dried basil, garlic powder, and oregano in a dish. Place the chicken breast on top. Spread the mixture all around the chicken breast to make sure all sides are well covered.

Place the chicken breast onto a baking sheet then bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until a  golden brown crust is formed.
