Chicken Parmesan (low-carb, keto)

Chicken Parmesan (low-carb, keto)


Italian food was one of the first things to go when I weighed 330 pounds. Little did I know that I could make one of my favorite Italian dishes that fits my Keto/Primal lifestyle! This chicken gets a nice crisp to the outside with amazing flavor. This dish is a winner, even with the non-Keto crowd.


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce (I used Rao's Homemade Roasted Garlic)


1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. Line a baking sheet with foil
3. Slice chicken breasts in half to make thinner pieces
4. Mix almond meal/flour, grated parmesan, and Italian seasoning
5. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl
6. Dip the chicken in the egg, then into the "breading"
7. Place "breaded" chicken breasts on baking sheet
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F
9. Take out of the oven and top each piece with equal amount of sauce and mozzarella
10. Bake until cheese melts
11. Serve!
