Low Carb 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 result, place the breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound it evenly using a meat tenderizer.

The secret is to make a tasty and crispy “bread crumb” coating using parmesan cheese, almond flour, and egg.

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