  • Chicken cutlets
  • Coconut flour
  • Eggs
  • Pork rind crumbs (e.g., @porkkinggood)
  • Almond flour
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Italian seasoning
  • Avocado oil
  • Marinara sauce (e.g., @raoshomemade)
  • Mozzarella cheese


  1. Begin by preparing the chicken cutlets. Dredge each cutlet in coconut flour, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs to create an egg wash. Dip each floured cutlet into the egg wash, allowing any excess to drip off.
  3. In another bowl, combine pork rind crumbs, almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning to form the coating mixture.
  4. Coat each chicken cutlet generously with the prepared coating mixture, pressing gently to ensure it adheres.
  5. Heat avocado oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the coated chicken cutlets to the pan, cooking until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  6. In the same pan, pour marinara sauce, spreading it evenly to coat the bottom. Return the cooked chicken cutlets to the pan, arranging them in a single layer.
  7. Top each chicken cutlet with additional marinara sauce and a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  8. Preheat the broiler in your oven. Carefully transfer the pan to the oven and broil for a few minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the edges are golden brown.
  9. Once done, remove the pan from the oven and allow the Chicken Parmigiana to cool slightly before serving.
  10. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired, and serve hot alongside your favorite keto-friendly sides.
