Healthy Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Got to love this recipe. It is gluten-free, lighter than average on the cheese and full of flavor.

Chicken Parmesan
Yield: 6
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1½ cups seasoned meal crumbs (see recipe below)
  • 3 chicken breasts, skinless, boneless, halved making 6 total
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 12 oz pasta sauce
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
Meal Crumbs Ingredients
  • ½ cup flax meal (ground flax seeds)
  • ½ cup almond meal (ground almonds)
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Sea Salt
For the meal crumbs
  1. Purchase ground flax or almond meal or grind your own.
  2. Just add the flax seeds or almond seeds in a high powered blender or coffee grinder (one not used for coffee). Do not over grind or it will turn to a butter.
  3. Hand stir all the ingredients together.
For the Parmesan Chicken
  1. Whisk or beat eggs and pour into a shallow dish or bowl.
  2. Mix together the meal crumb ingredients and place in another shallow dish or bowl.
  3. Dip chicken breasts into beaten egg, covering all sides, then into meal crumb mixture coating all sides.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Place the coated chicken in skillet and saute for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side. Check to make sure chicken is thoroughly cooked through and juices run clear.
  5. Heat up pasta sauce in a pan.
  6. Plate a serving by placing the breaded chicken on the plate, then the hot pasta sauce, and top with a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan cheese.
