Chicky Chicky Parm Parm


I’m a genius now. (Call Mensa!)

I wanted chicken Parmesan last week, but couldn’t find a good recipe that would be either low-carb, keto, or THM/S… so I started thinking ­čĄö

And Eureka! I realized that I could make a totally solid chicken Parmesan breading out of pork rinds, almond meal, Italian seasoning, and of course, Parmesan´┐╝´┐╝´┐╝!

So, here’s what you need to do!

Supply list:

  • Food Processor
  • Meat Hammer
  • 3 oz Pork Rinds
  • 1/4 cup Almond meal´┐╝
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Salt and pepper (to your preference)
    2 eggs
    1.5-2 lbs Chicken Breast (thinly sliced)
    Coconut oil for frying

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Put the pork rinds, almond meal, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning in your food processor. Pulse until it’s all just crumbs.
  2. Your Parmesan cheese into that mixture. Now sit that aside.
  3. Whip your two eggs in a bowl until well beaten, sit that aside as well.´┐╝
  4. Preheat oven to 375┬░
  5. Take your chicken breast pieces, and pound them with a meat mallet until they are as thin as you would wish a chicken Parmesan cutlet to be. This varies from person to person, personally I like mine very thin.´┐╝´┐╝´┐╝´┐╝ * pro-tip* if you can’t find your meat mallet, like a friend of mine couldn’t find hers, (ehem) You have my permission to use your metal ice cream scooper and then just never tell anyone that you did something so uncivilized´┐╝´┐╝.
  6. Heat your oil up in a frying pan´┐╝.
  7. Now dip one of your chicken cutlets into the egg mixture, immediately dip it into the crumb mixture, then immediately put it into the hot frying oil´┐╝.
  8. Let this cook until crispy on the bottom, then flip and cook to desired crispiness.´┐╝
  9. Repeat this process with all of your chicken pieces until you have cooked them all or until you have run out of batter.´┐╝
  10. Once all the chicken is cooked, place in your oven at 375┬░ for about 10´┐╝ minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven, and place a couple spoonfuls of a low sugar, low carb spaghetti sauce onto each cutlet. Add a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese to the top and then return to oven for 5 to 8 more minutes.
  12. Remove from oven, serve with a side salad and/or a small portion of spaghetti squash and enjoy your low glycemic life´┐╝´┐╝!
