Recipe: Keto Chicken Parmesan

By  | 


  • 1 (8 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ oz. pork rinds, crushed
  • 1 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. ground red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ cup jarred tomato sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp. ghee (clarified butter)


Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler.

Slice chicken breast through the middle horizontally from one side to within 1/2 inch of the other side. Open the two sides and spread them out like an open book. Pound chicken flat until about 1/2-inch thick.

Beat egg and cream together in a bowl.

Combine crushed pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, ground black pepper, and Italian seasoning in bowl; transfer breading to a plate.

Dip chicken into egg mixture; coat completely. Press chicken into breading; thickly coat both sides.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; add ghee. Place chicken in the pan; cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Be careful to keep breading in place.

Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Cover with tomato sauce; top with mozzarella cheese.

Broil until cheese is bubbling and barely browned, about 2 minutes.
