Welcome to my kitchen, where flavor meets healthy living! If you're on a journey to shed some pounds while still savoring every bite, you're in the right place. Today, I'm excited to share a mouthwatering recipe for Low-Carb Parmesan Chicken that will make your taste buds dance with delight without tipping the scale.


Units Scale
  • 1 pound of thin boneless chicken cutlets
  • 1 egg whisked in a bowl - add red pepper flakes for spice and herbs of choice
  • 1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
  • One pat of butter
  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil


  1. Take your chicken cutlets and dip in the egg wash then transfer one at a time into your shredded parmesan coat your cutlet with the cheese on both sides then transfer to your heated skillet.
  2. You should have one pat of butter and a 2 tablespoons of olive oil warming in your pan while you are prepping the cutlets.
  3. Do not make your skillet too hot as you don't want to burn the cutlets.
  4. Cook till golden about 3-4 minutes then flip for another 3-4 minutes. You may want to take your spatula and get underneath the cutlet while they are cooking to make sure they don't stick or burn as they do cook quick.
  5. When they look crispy and golden remove and serve.


  • Choose Quality Chicken: Start with high-quality chicken breasts, preferably boneless and skinless. Look for organic or free-range options for better flavor and texture.
  • Pound the Chicken: Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to even out the thickness of the chicken breasts. This ensures even cooking and tenderness.
  • Proper Seasoning: Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper before dipping it in the egg wash. Seasoning the chicken itself enhances its flavor.
  • Egg Wash Consistency: Beat the eggs well for the egg wash. You can also add a splash of milk or water to create a smoother and lighter coating.
  • Use Fresh Parmesan: Grate fresh Parmesan cheese for the best flavor. Avoid pre-packaged grated cheese, as it may contain fillers and additives.
  • Shallow Frying: Heat a good quality frying pan with a shallow layer of oil. Using too much oil can make the dish greasy.
  • Medium Heat: Maintain a consistent medium heat during frying. This ensures the chicken cooks through without burning the coating.
  • Drain Excess Oil: After frying, place the chicken on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil and keep the coating crispy.
  • Top with Sauce Carefully: Use a good-quality marinara or tomato sauce to top the chicken. Spoon the sauce over the chicken evenly without saturating it. Too much sauce can make it soggy.
