Keto Chicken Parmesan | Mark’s daily apple

There’s nothing more comforting than the rich tomato flavor of a classic Italian dish. However, those who regularly practice a keto lifestyle or are starting a keto reset diet may be wondering if home cooking is out of reach. This delicious Keto Chicken Parmesan recipe proves that you don’t have to leave your comfort favorites behind when you go the keto path.

Our recipe replaces Primal Kitchen Roasted Garlic Marinara with the tedious all-day sauce that usually accompanies traditional parmigiana chicken for a quick and easy weeknight meal. We prefer to cook our Chicken Parmesan in a cast iron skillet for flavor and the hemoglobin-iron boost, but you can use any oven-safe skillet. Serve alone, with roasted veggies, or on top of keto-friendly pasta.

How to Make Keto Chicken Parmesan

First, use a food processor or blender to pulverize the pork rinds into a coarse flour. In a bowl or bowl, mix the pork rind powder with the almond flour, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper. In another bowl or bowl, whisk your eggs. Dip the schnitzel individually in the egg mixture, drain excess egg, then dip the schnitzel from both sides in the flour mixture. Set each cutlet aside and repeat with the others.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet on your stovetop over medium-high heat. When hot, add the cutlets to the pan and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to sear the chicken in batches. Don’t overfill the pan or you won’t get a nice crust on the chicken. After you sear the chicken, place all the chops in the pan. Place the pan in the oven until the internal temperature of the thickest cutlet reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the roasted garlic marinara sauce onto each cutlet and return the pan to the oven for 3-5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chicken with the cheese. Increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees. Place pan back in oven until cheese is melted and browned. You can also use the grill function in your oven. Remove from the oven and garnish with black pepper, oregano and basil.

Serve with your favorite veggie side. We like plain roasted or steamed broccoli, sautéed zucchini, kale or spinach, or spaghetti squash.
