Keto Chicken Parmesan


  • 1 (8 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1egg
  • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ ounces pork rinds, crushed
  • 1 ounce grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes(Optional)
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ cup jarred tomato sauce (such as Rao’s®)
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ghee (clarified butter)
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler.


  • Step 2

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

  • Step 3

    Beat egg and cream together in a bowl.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 5

    Dip chicken into egg mixture; coat completely. Press chicken into breading; thickly coat both sides.

  • Step 6

    Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; add ghee. Place chicken in the pan; cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Be careful to keep breading in place.

  • Step 7

    Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Cover with tomato sauce; top with mozzarella cheese.

  • Step 8

    Broil until cheese is bubbling and barely browned, about 2 minutes.
