Chicken Parmesan - Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free
Low Carb and Keto friendly breaded chicken breasts baked in homemade marinara sauce and topped with gooey mozzarella cheese!
Preheat oven to 400F.
Grind your pork rinds in a food processor or mini chopper. Remove and set aside. Add cubes of parmesan cheese and grind till you get a granular consistency, like the pork rinds.
Add all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix using a hand whisk or fork, until well combined.
Set up your breading station with the chicken, beaten eggs and breading mixture. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg and then into the breading mixture.
Add some extra virgin olive oil to a skillet and lightly fry the chicken on medium heat for just a few minutes on each side (will continue cooking in the oven).
Brush some olive oil on the bottom of a ceramic or glass baking casserole. Add 1/4 cup or so of the marinara sauce to coat the bottom, then add the chicken. Top each piece of the chicken with the remaining marinara sauce and the mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes at 375F, then increase the temperature to 450F and cook 5 more minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and serve with your favorite Keto-friendly vegetable. Enjoy!
