Easy Low Carb Chicken Parmesan may sound carb heavy but you won’t have to sacrifice your meal plan to enjoy this decadent dish!
What is Parmesan Chicken?
Parmesan Chicken is typically a quick and easy recipe to make for dinner. It’s usually chicken cutlets that are breaded in parmesan, egg, and bread crumbs, then fried until crispy.
But this low carb chicken parmesan steps it up using healthier alternatives and is BAKED instead of fried! It’s the best of both worlds.
How Do You Make Chicken Parmesan?
Don’t be fooled by the fancy sounding name. This is a low carb chicken parmesan that will wow any crowd! Double or triple the recipe and make a hearty sandwich or serve over greens for a next day lunch!
- PREP: Preheat your oven, grease a large baking sheet, and cut your chicken breast in half crosswise, tossing them in a bowl with one mixed egg.
- MIX: Combine together the parmesan cheese, coconut flour, and Italian seasoning. Dip each piece of chicken into cheese mixture.
- BAKE: Place the chicken pieces onto the prepared baking sheets and top with pasta sauce. Top with shredded cheese and then broil few minutes until bubbly!
You will want to bake until the chicken reaches 165°F and then serve over spaghetti squash or zoodles! Take care not to overcook the chicken so it stays nice and juicy!
What to Serve with Chicken Parmesan?
Keeping it low carb means garlic bread is a no-no! How about a crispy, green salad with a bright, tangy vinaigrette or a sweet slaw made from shredded cabbage and creamy mayo? Paired with a nice glass of red (or white- lower carb!) wine, this entrée will satisfy your taste buds without sacrificing your waistline!
