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.

    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?
