For the Chicken:

  • 6 small chicken breasts 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoon oil to fry

For the Topping:

  • 2 cups keto marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese freshly sliced
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese


  • Pound the chicken breast until ¼ inch in thickness. Sprinkle each breast of chicken with salt and lightly coat both sides of the chicken with the almond flour until covered.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs. In a separate bowl, add the parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and the remaining almond flour that was leftover after coating the chicken. Dip the chicken breast pieces in the eggs until coated, letting excess drip off, followed by the parmesan/almond flour mixture. Repeat the process until all the chicken is coated.
  • Place oil in a non-stick pan and place over medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken and fry for 2-3 minutes until golden on one side. Flip and cook for a further 3 minutes. Transfer the fried chicken breast fillets to a plate covered in some paper towel, to soak up any oil.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the crumbed chicken onto the baking sheet. Top with enough marinara sauce to cover the top, followed by 2-3 slices of mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and slightly golden on top.
  • Remove the chicken parmesan from the oven and serve immediately.

Note: This Keto Chicken Parmesan recipe offers all the comforting flavors of the classic Italian dish, with a keto-friendly twist.
