Cutlets are often a good choice if you don’t have lots of time and want to use the meat in your fridge to its fullest. From such cutlets, you can make burgers, chop them, mix with cheese and use them in keto tortillas or even put them in a soup.

This is a basic but golden recipe that contains everything you will need daily for your ketogenic diet (your #1 meat to use in any recipe), just mix chicken with egg and melting the cheese of your choice in a bowl, add a little bit of oil, seasonings and voila!

Besides Mozzarella, other types of cheese that you can use are Cheddar, Gruyère and Raclette (the last one also used a lot in zucchini noodles recipes).

When adding flour don’t put all of it in a mix, leave a little bit to sprinkle cutlets with it, in that way it will have a crunchy texture.

When forming those patties, sprinkle a little bit of oil on your utensils and hands so that the meat won’t stick. And try making small bite-sized pieces. In that way you will get full faster by eating less and also, the small pieces look much more appealing on a plate of greens.

We use ground chicken (chicken mince) in this recipe. You can use chicken breast and chop it into fine pieces as well.


Don’t be scared to experiment and maybe add minced nuts or sesame seeds just to make the dish more sophisticated.
