How to make Keto Chicken Parmigiana
  1. Preheat your oven to 190C/375F.
  2. Use a meat mallet or tenderizer to pound the chicken thighs into an even thickness.
  3. In a bowl, add the egg, heavy cream, and water and whisk well.
  4. In a second bowl, add the parmesan, protein power, oregano, garlic power, and white pepper. Mix well and transfer into a pan or plate with a flat base (for easier breading).
  5. Dip a chicken thigh into the egg mixture, allow any excess to drip off, then dip into the parmesan breading. Press the breading onto both sides, repeat with the other thigh fillets.
  6. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and add the lard.
  7. Fry the breaded chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown, then place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  8. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce onto each one and top with the mozzarella cheese.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is golden and the chicken is cooked through.
  10. Serve hot with a side of Keto Garlic Green Beans, or Cauliflower Mash and enjoy!
