Low Carb Chicken Parmesan

June 7, 2018Laura

One of my favorite pre-keto meals was chicken parmesan. It took me a few tries, but I finally created the perfect low carb version of it. My non-keto husband even loved it! The”crust” is made out of a mixture of pork rinds, parmesan cheese and spices. The flavor is spot on and it gets nice and crispy. It’s one of my new favorite meals and will be added to my regular dinner rotation for sure. If you give it a try, I hope you love it!
