Baked Chicken Parmesan is a delicious, easy, flourless alternative to the traditional version with less mess.  Unlike most versions, which are deep-fried and heavy with greasy breadcrumbs and cheese, this version is baked and has minimal prep.  If you’re feeling lazy you can use a good quality store bought sauce rather than make your own. For a carb free version try serving baked chicken Parmesan with a side of spaghetti squash or cooked zucchini noodles.

1. Ingredients

For the Chicken

2 large boneless chicken breasts

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup almond flour

1 egg, beaten

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

salt to taste

120 grams mozzarella

Fresh basil thinly sliced or chopped

For the mole

2 garlic cloves

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, roughly chopped

1 tin peeled chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika

1 handful fresh origanum, chopped

salt and pepper


2. Instructions 

2.1 For the sauce

  1. Fry the onion and garlic in olive oil until golden brown. 
  2. Once it’s golden brown, add the tinned tomatoes, salt, smoked paprika, black pepper and oregano. 
  3. Cook on a low heat for about 10 minutes. If it goes too dry, add a drop or two of water. Add a little water if it gets too dry.

2.2 For the Chicken

  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/400F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil. Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise, so you have 4 pieces total. Pound each piece to an even 1/2-inch thickness. Set aside.
  2. Mix the Parmesan, almond flour and salt and pepper together.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg whites until lightly foamy.
  4. Dunk the breasts in the beaten egg, then into the Parmesan mix, making sure each piece is well coated. Cut the mozzarella into 4 slices, or grate and divide into four equal portions.
  5. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the crumbs are brown.
  6. Remove from the oven, spoon 2 tablespoons of sauce over each piece of chicken, and top with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted, about 3-5 additional minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with basil and enjoy immediately, topped with extra sauce as desired.
