If you look for a dinner idea that will satisfy the entire family, then I’ve got just the recipe for you! Keto Parmesan crusted chicken will have everybody saying, “who knew chicken could actually be this flavorful!”
It’s packed with spicy seasonings from the easy marinade and has a nice crispy coating using our homemade keto bread crumbs as a base for the topping. It’s a home run dinner, all while keeping things low-carb.
This is hands down one of my preferred keto dinner ideas I have created to date. If you actually want to ramp up the flavor, you can throw the chicken in the fridge and marinate it overnight, then cook it for dinner when you are prepared to eat.
Easy Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken
- 3 medium size chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic
- 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
First, In a bowl, add all marinade ingredient, and whisk together.
Put chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag and use a meat mallet or rolling pin to tenderize the chicken breasts.
To avoid piercing the bag, use the smooth side of the meat mallet. Following pounding the meat, pour the marinade into the bag and let marinate for at least thirty (30) minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
After at least thirty (30) minutes, remove chicken from the marinade and put in an oiled cast-iron skillet and bake in the preheated oven for fifteen (15) minutes.
As the chicken is baking, in a little bowl, mix together keto bread crumbs, melted butter, and Parmesan cheese.
After fifteen (15) minutes of baking, pull out cast-iron pan and top the chicken with keto bread crumb topping. Bake for an additional five (5) minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
