Keto Chicken Parmesan
Bringing back the comfort into Keto food
Chicken Parmesan is a staple and a comfort food for many people. In my earlier videos I’ve shown you how to make my Keto marinara sauce as well as Keto bread crumbs. Putting these two together you can definitely whip up something close to the original. My plan however was to reinvent it a bit and also make an easy, meal for one style dish that didn’t require you to make bread crumbs and have the marinara sauce lying around. This is something you can whip up in about 15-20 minutes with just a few simple ingredients lying around.
Reinventing the classic Chicken Parmesan
So for my version of Keto Chicken Parmesan I decided to use fresh parsley and Parmesan cheese to create a ‘Keto bread crumb’. I also decided to create a tomato sauce in the same pan in about 5-6 minutes. The sauce itself is packed full of flavour and is pretty low on carbs since it’s just tomatoes with some garlic and dried seasoning and of course fresh basil to finish with. All in all I think we’ve got ourselves a winner winner, chicken dinner.

Excellent recipe!!! Can’t wait to make it myself! Drilling already while watching it !! Gonna make and Insta pic it soon ! Thanks and Cheers!
I meant drooling * not drilling 🙂
Sahil! I love the new site. This particular recipe looks so so good, and I was CRAVING Chicken Parm fiercely, so I think this is going on my list for the weekend. Thanks for all you do!
What the hell was that, sorry your music scared the shit out of me. Not into that kind of music, sorry. But your recipes are out of this world. I’ve never tasted anything so good . The recipes are definitely 5 star quality dishes. Your recipes in this ketogenics is really making a tremendous differents in my over all health. My diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are low for the first time in 5 yrs. Thank you for sharing your recipes and sorry about your music , not a fan to that type of music
hey no apologies needed. I know my music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Glad the recipes help.
I’m not a big fan of heavy metal either, but I did want to comment that I don’t feel like the music interferes with the the video at all. I was actually quite impressed with how Sahil kept it professional by keeping the volume at a low level and not imposing throughout.
I do agree, though, that there are some FANTASTIC recipes coming from Headbanger’s Kitchen!!!
It doesn’t appear to be found in MFP. But I know it works because I found the Cauli Mac & Cheese. Has it been uploaded?
Yes it has, maybe I need to input it as a food. Gimme a few hours.
This was very good but I still can’t access it in MFP. 🙁
Ah! The link from this website doesn’t work but I find it by searching Headbangers Kitchen. Yay!
Soooo amazingly good, even my daughter that has a favorite dish of ramen noodles devoured this chicken parm!! <3 <3
We made this tonight, it was delicious! Great recipe!
Omg I’ve just started Keto and this recipe is amazing !! I’m a real foodie and I felt like I wasn’t missing out on anything with this dish 🙂 thank you ??????
Made this two times already!
It’s perfection on a plate!
Just about to throw it in the oven! I didn’t have enough Parm, so I did a half Parm, half ground pork rinds breading with the parsley. Also, I had some premade marinara sauce, so I fried up some sliced mushrooms in the drippings, then put the marinara in the pan to heat up. I’ll let you know how it goes! Serving with steamed broccoli. Mmmm!
We’ve cooked quite a few recipes of yours now and they’ve all been absolutely delicious. Cooked the chicken parm and we all loved it, including the kids.
My wife and I have been on the keto diet for a fortnight now and you’ve helped make the transition really smooth. Really appreciate what you do and all the best from New Zealand..
hey, Demostealer! if one partakes of pork products, finely crushed pork rinds mixed with the parm is another option. i find i like that better–though, if i am correct, that may not be acceptable for the induction phase of atkins (nor the tomato sauce/tomatoes)–but i will admit, though keeping well within the 20g of net carbs, i admit to throwing in a few 0 carb items not on the list…
Oh I do partake in lots of porky goodness but in India I don’t get pork rinds ready to eat so I have to make them from scratch and for some reason it just keeps failing so I haven’t bothered with it.
The google ad is covering the content. Step 1 of the recipe.
Now what do I do. I already bought all the ingredients.
Google Ads are covering steps one and nine so completely I cannot read the instructions or even guess at what it says.
This is a total bummer cause I went to the store and bought all the ingredients and now have to think of making something else.
Nothing is covered. I just checked. Also there is a video on top with me showing everything but here to help you out
