Keto Chicken Parm (Parmigiana)




I think I am eating better on this "diet" than I ever have.

How about a great chicken parm?





Research:

Ingredients:

Two boneless skinless chicken breast
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Chicharrones (get the high end pork rinds)
Your favorite sauce. We just made a meat sauce.
Egg
Zucchini








Execution:

The only thing special about this recipe is the substitution of crushed pork rinds for breading and zucchini noodles rather than wheat based pasta.

Brutally flatten your chicken



Crush your pork rinds (use your hands or wrap and pound with the tenderizer). I've not figured out the best way to do this yet.


Then bread with egg and crushed rinds



Into the oven at 400. Cook until almost done (270 degrees or so) before adding the mozzarella



Add mozzarella to melt


Finish up with zucchini noodles. Steam them just a little in a pan a little water and olive oil. Think al dente zucc. maybe 5 minutes.


Assemble and serve







Verdict:

Another winner. I prefer the pork rind breading to flour, it has more flavor and a crunchier texture. The zucchini noodles are a fair substitute. They have more water in them and tend to weep. Need to figure out how to fix that...

Next time I'll try to dry them in a colander for 20 minutes with salt maybe squeeze them? Wash the salt off later if it is too salty.
