How To Make Keto Chicken Parmesan

Made keto-friendly for a healthier dish, this chicken parmesan recipe tops perfectly fried chicken breast with tomato sauce and cheese.

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 8 mins
Total: 28 mins


  • 8 oz chicken breast, skinless, boneless
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • oz pork rinds, crushed
  • 1 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes, optional
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ cup tomato sauce, jarred, such as Rao's®
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp ghee, (clarified butter)


  1. Set oven rack about 6-inch from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  2. Slice chicken breast through the middle horizontally from 1 side to within ½-inch of the other side. Open the 2 sides and spread them out like an open book. Pound chicken flat until about ½-inch thick.

  3. Beat egg and cream together in a bowl.
  4. 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.
  5. Dip chicken into egg mixture; coat completely. Press chicken into breading; thickly coat both sides.
  6. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; add ghee. Place chicken in the pan; cook for about 3 minutes per side until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F. Be careful to keep breading in place.

  7. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Cover with tomato sauce; top with mozzarella cheese.
  8. Broil for about 2 minutes until cheese is bubbling and barely browned.

  9. Serve and enjoy!
