This Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken Cutlets recipe has been sitting in my drafts folder for way too long! I got sidetracked with New Years, and Super Bowl, Valentine's Day, and St Patricks Day and neglected it 😥

Shame on me because this is one amazingly tasty recipe!

If you love easy, low-stress, recipes that don't take a ton of ingredients or time to make you will love this one.

This recipe utilizes ingredients you probably already have in your pantry and fridge and only takes 30 minutes (maybe 40 if your cutlets are a bit thicker) to bake. But the results taste so good your friends and family will think this is a special meal.

I don't know about you, but I love those kinds of recipes.

I adapted this recipe from one that used almond flour mixed with the Parmesan cheese. I decided I wanted to get the carbs as low as possible so just omitted the almond flour and bumped up the Parmesan.

I also chose to bake vs fry the chicken cutlets because, well, I don't want to stand at my stove any longer than I have to.

I am always working on ways to make dinner an easier process.

Currently, I am working on a keto e-cookbook that will come out later this year, and hoping to be able to publish my first physical, hold in your hands, cookbook in 2022 to help make your keto journey an easier one.

So keep your eye out for updates on that process!

FAQS ABOUT KETO PARMESAN CRUSTED CHICKEN CUTLETS


Do I have to cut the chicken breasts in half? Cutting the chicken breasts in half allows them to cook quicker which keeps the chicken from drying out in the oven. You can purchase cutlets instead of cutting them yourself it just costs a little more.

Does the chicken get crispy in the oven? Because I removed the almond flour and opted to bake instead of fry, the chicken doesn't get super crispy. I was shooting more for juicy and tender and really flavorful. If you prefer crispy chicken you can reduce the parmesan cheese by 1/2 cup and add in 1/2 cup of almond flour. You can also fry the chicken in a bit of olive oil or a butter/olive oil mixture instead of baking it. Don't fry them without the addition of almond flour though or the parmesan cheese will just melt.

How do I store the leftover chicken cutlets? I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. The leftovers are great cut up in a salad the next day for lunch! I don't even heat it up, just slice it up cold and put it on top of a garden or Ceasar salad. I have not tried freezing leftovers yet.

Last thoughts about Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken Cutlets


I can't say enough about this Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken Cutlets recipe!

Between how easy it is to make, and how full of flavor it is, it truly is one of my favorite things to make right now. It goes great with roasted low carb veggies, mashed cauliflower, zoodles, spaghetti squash, Palmini noodles, and the list goes on and on.

It is also a perfect meal prep idea. Just make them up and store them in the fridge for a quick lunch idea. Like I said above, this chicken is amazing cut up on top of a Ceasar salad!

Even my non-keto family loves it in a sub roll the next day with a little mayo, or Italian dressing, sliced tomato, and lettuce.
