This is hands down one of my favorite keto dinner ideas I have created to date. If you really want to ramp up the flavor, you can throw the chicken in the fridge and marinate it overnight, then cook it for dinner when you are ready to eat.
In a bowl, add all marinade ingredients, and whisk together.
Place chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag and use a meat mallet or rolling pin to tenderize the chicken breasts. To avoid piercing the bag, use the smooth side of the meat mallet. After pounding the meat, pour the marinade into the bag and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
After at least 30 minutes, remove chicken from marinade and place in an oiled cast-iron skillet and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
While the chicken is baking, in a small bowl, mix together keto bread crumbs, melted butter, and parmesan cheese. After 15 minutes of baking, pull out cast-iron pan and top the chicken with keto bread crumb topping. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!

Keep these tips in mind when making this flavorful keto parmesan crusted chicken:
Want to really keep it squeaky clean keto? Make your own keto mayo so you know exactly what’s in it without having to sift through label ingredients.
Did you know if you pound chicken breasts you will get more tender meat? You can simply use a meat mallet or even a rolling pin. Just be sure that you don’t over pound the chicken because it will break down the fibers that hold the chicken together.
