Low Carb Keto Chicken Parmesan Recipe

The basics of a keto diet is very low carb and high fat intake. Generally a 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs or sugars for the daily amount in your diet. This puts your body into a state of ketosis where your body no longer uses sugar or carbohydrates for its main source of energy. Thus burning your body fat stores quickly. In my husbands case he also integrates intermittent fasting or not eating between 12-16 hours in a 24 hour period. He usually eats lunch around noon or 1pm and then dinner around 5 and then only water from then, sleeps and then water in the morning till lunch again. So when he found this Low Carb Keto Chicken Parmesan recipe, it was a must have. And after the family ate it and our three year old called it chicken pizza, it is now in our family recipe book.

Love cheesy Chicken parm

My hubby has been on a keto diet for a while now. He has lost a lot of weight is now lighter then when were first married, light then he has been for over twenty years! He was watching Youtube videos the other night trying to find a recipe that would fit into his diet. He came across a Chicken Parm or Chicken Parmesan recipe.  He loves melted cheese and has also been missing his melted cheese pizza’s that he loves. So when he saw this Chicken Parmesan recipe he fell in love. But the only downfall was the breading. Talking with a friend he suggested using a crazy “keto friendly breading” instead. Which we would of never of thought would work but after we cooked it , it totally did work and you wouldn’t of known the difference both by sight and by texture and taste. Blended up fried Pork Rinds! Yup those multiple fried crunchy pork rinds make the perfect keto bread substitute. So stick with me here and just give it a try!

Low Carb Keto Chicken Parmesan Recipe:

Ingredients 

3 Chicken breasts boneless skinless

1-2 cups Low carb marinara sauce

1 pound shredded Mozzarella

2 cups ground pork rinds

2 eggs

1/2 cup water

Salt and Pepper

Keto breaded chicken pork rind

Directions:

Trim and layout chicken breast to desired quality. Pound chicken breast to achieve uniform thickness for  more even cooking.

Grind in a blender enough unflavored pork rinds to equal 2 cups of shredded pork rinds. There might be a slight pork smell when grinding, but this doesn’t come out in the flavor of the chicken parm.

Beat 2 eggs in dish and add water to thin egg batter.

Place whipped egg batter in a large flat dish

Place the 2 cups of ground pork rinds that now look like bread crumbs into a large dish or plate .

With one hand place chicken breast into eggs and coat evenly. Then lift and place onto the pork rind crumbs and flip and coat evenly with the other hand.

Place pork rind coated chicken breast into large pan with enough room to fit all breast.

 

Cook in oven for 20 mins at 400F

After chicken is cooked remove and add marinara sauce to desired amount. Usually a couple spoonfuls on each breast to cover the tops and if desired a little around it.

Add mozzarella cheese to desired amount. We like it quite cheesy, but you can add less or more.
