Chicken Parmesan (Low-Carb, Keto)

"Italian food was one of the first things to go when I weighed 330 pounds. Little did I know that I could make one of my favorite Italian dishes that fits my Keto/Primal lifestyle! This chicken gets a nice crisp to the outside with amazing flavor. This dish is a winner, even with the non-Keto crowd."

  1. I did not see the carb count for this recipe. Did I miss it? It's important to those of us on Keto.
  2. Super yummy and so easy to make! Thanks for a great recipe!
  3. Great way to use almond flour, kept the chicken moist and flavorful! Will keep this in my keto rotations. Thanks for sharing!


I create recipes that fit Primal, Paleo, and/or Keto lifestyles! My name is Ben, and I used to weigh over 330 pounds. I had been overweight my entire life. I was always the ?fat kid? in the group. The only person in the pool wearing a t-shirt type of kid. As an adult, it only got worse. I let it get to a point where I thought nothing could help me. Everything changed when I heard Mark Sisson on an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience. They discussed Mark's book, The Primal Blueprint. I had never seen an approach to fitness and nutrition that made so much sense. I began making small changes, following a workout routine and moving my diet towards full on Primal. That was just the beginning. Since starting my journey, I have followed paleo and keto diets. I've done CrossFitt and olympic weight lifting. I've even trained in kickboxing and, currently, Brazilian jiu jitsu. Now, I've lost over 130 pounds, I can sling kettlebells around like it's my job, and I'm easily the most bad ass version of myself I've ever been.
