I don’t know why, but I always consider dinners like chicken parmesan better left up to restaurants.  I love it, but only if someone else is making it.  Come to find out, it really is easy to prepare…especially the keto way!

This Keto Chicken Parmesan is super easy!  It requires just 6 ingredients (if you use store bought marinara) and a little over 30 minutes to make!  Lets go!

SIDE DISHES FOR THIS KETO CHICKEN PARMESAN:

To get started with this keto chicken parmesan, I first cut my thick chicken breasts in half, lengthwise.  My chicken breasts were really thick, but only the size of my palm.  I ended up with 6 chicken breast cutlets that were about 3/4 of an inch thick.

Once your chicken is prepped, get your dredging stations set up.  I had one bowl with 2 beaten eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.  Then in a shallow bowl, I had 1 cup of shredded parmesan.  The perfect parmesan for this recipe is the pre-shredded kind.  I used Kraft brand.

Now we need to get our frying pan ready.  I used a large non-stick skillet that I also sprayed with cooking spray (avocado oil works too).  I tried to use a cast iron skillet with oil, but as the parmesan cheese melted, it stuck to the pan and made a mess.

Time to cook the chicken!  Coat each chicken breast with the egg mixture, then dredge them in the parmesan cheese, really making sure to get a good coating.  Finally, lay the chicken in the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side.  A gorgeous golden crust will form.

Place each cooked chicken breast in a baking dish.  Spoon 2 tablespoons of marinara on each piece, followed by 2 slices of fresh mozzarella cheese (shredded works too).  Time to bake until the cheese melts!

The result?  Perfectly cooked chicken breast with flavorful parmesan “breading” and lots of gooey cheese.  A weeknight keto dinner that will make your families eyes light up!

    When I made this, the cheese stuck to pan. I tried both avacado oil and cooking spray with my nonstick pan; the cooking spray worked a little bit better, but the cheese and egg wash still stuck. Any suggestions?

      I haven’t run into that problem. Maybe wait a little longer before trying to turn them so they can develop a crust.
