Adding a Parmesan crusted chicken breast to a dinner plate

Flavorful chicken with a kick!

If you’re looking for a dinner idea that will please the entire family, then I’ve got just the recipe for you! Keto parmesan crusted chicken will have everyone saying, “who knew chicken could actually be this flavorful!”

It’s packed with savory seasonings from the easy marinade and has a nice crunchy coating using our homemade keto bread crumbs as a base for the topping. It’s a home run dinner, all while keeping things low carb.

Watch my video below to see just how easy this keto chicken is to make –

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.

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.

    Just had this for dinner. DElicious! I can’t stand pork rinds on their own but with the spices and Parmesan the breadcrumb topping was so good. The chicken was so moist and juicy from the marinade. This ones a keeper!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m excited to hear this! Thank you for following up after you made this, Josee!
