Keto Friendly Chicken Parm

My family and I decided to try out the Keto diet. We saw that we could have as much pork rinds as we wanted so I came up with this recipe.

Converting a traditional recipe to a Keto-friendly recipe takes a few adjustments and this recipe is a great example of how to do it. Crushed pork rinds are an alternative to bread crumbs for coating chicken. Brandy opted to bake the chicken breasts until they were crisp and golden brown, instead of frying, so this is a very easy chicken parmigiana recipe. There is not a lot of seasoning on the chicken but the cheese and sauce add flavor. Keeping carbs in mind, we opted for a lower sugar spaghetti sauce and served everything over zoodles. Another Keto-friendly option is sliced and steamed zucchini or cauliflower rice.

Note: Tomato sauce can be high in carbs so use just a little bit on the chicken and make sure to check labels. It also helps to keep the "breading" from getting too soggy. The Test Kitchen
