My kids LOVE Chicken Parmesan but I hate making it because it’s so time consuming and fatty when you have to fry it oil. Then I found this easy Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken on Allrecipes.com. I made some alterations to make it low-carb and gluten-free, and let me tell you, it turned out delicious! Simple to make, great flavor, and still has that great crunch! This has become a family favorite in our weekly dinner rotation. The kids, of course, have it with pasta and spaghetti sauce, but I really enjoy it by itself with some steamed spinach or grilled zucchini.
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 Tbsp of olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup of almond meal
1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp of dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
In a pie plate, mix the olive oil and garlic.
In another pie plate, mix the almond meal, Parmesan cheese, basil, and pepper.
Dip each chicken breast in the oil mixture, then in the almond meal mixture.
Arrange the coated chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish, and top with any remaining bread crumb mixture.
Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
