Easy Keto Chicken Parmesan Recipe

We just made an Easy Keto Chicken Parmesan Recipe that you are going to love!

If you love the original chicken parmesan recipe and you are doing the keto diet, you know that it’s made with bread crumbs as an outer coating and the tomato sauce probably has more sugar in it than what you are used to.

The tomato sauce that we use is keto friendly.  You can find marinara sauces pre-made at the grocery store that have a lower sugar content.  Rao’s tends to be a favorite brand that fits our macros.  Be sure to stay clear of any marinara sauce that has high fructose corn syrup in it.  That will spike your glucose like crazy.

This recipe is an easy recipe so we used a pre-made marinara sauce but you can also make your own homemade sauce too.

This recipe is completely keto friendly!  You can serve this keto dinner idea with a side salad to have a complete meal that is not only satisfying but absolutely delicious!

We love making a double batch and having leftovers because this type of meal tends to taste even better the second day.  I think that is something that happens with all Italian food.
