Keto Baked Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe

This Keto Baked Parmesan Crusted Chicken smells like heaven in the oven! One bite and you will be hooked and begging for more! Quick, easy, and perfect for those busy weeknights, this keto friendly dinner idea should be on your meal plan this week!

I am in love with this keto chicken recipe!  Seriously.  I can’t get enough of it.

To get the extra crispy crust you see in this photo we fried the chicken for a small amount of time before baking it but you don’t have to do this step if you are hard pressed for time.  Either way the recipe will taste amazing but I can tell you the extra time to fry it a bit before putting it in the oven makes this recipe a total winner!!

When you make this recipe as shown, your chicken breasts will always come out tender and never be dry.  This is because of the extra step we use to pound the chicken down to make each piece thin so it will cook evenly and for a lower amount of time.  Perfect chicken every time!

Keto Baked Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe Ingredients


Keto Baked Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the protein powder, seasonings, and cheeses. Mix until fully combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, combine the eggs and heavy cream. Whip the eggs till fluffy.
  4. Cut the chicken breasts in a butterfly cut and use a meat tenderizer in the chicken to that the whole breast is of equal size. This will allow the chicken to cook evenly.
  5. If the chicken breasts are too big you can cut them in half.
  6. Start by dipping the chicken in the egg mixture and then dredge into the protein powder cheese mixture.
  7. For an extra crispy crust, fry in a frying pan until brown on each side and then place in a baking dish to fully cook. This step is optional.
  8. You can place the chicken directly in a baking dish without frying the coating too.
  9. Sprinkle a bit more cheese on the top of the chicken before it’s baked.
    Bake it for about 30 minutes or until the internal temperature as reached 165 degrees at the thickest part of the chicken breasts. If you fried the crust beforehand it may only need to cook for 20 minutes.
  10. Serve with a side salad or vegetable.
