15 minutes of cook time and one pan is all you need for this simple and delicious Skillet Chicken Parmesan! Made with a nut crumb topping, and dairy-free cheese sauce that make it Keto-friendly.
In a food processor, pulse the almonds with Italian seasoning. Pulse until it resembles a coarse mixture. Set aside in a flat bowlor plate.
In a separate bowl, melt the butter or ghee and stir in the minced garlic.
Ensure that the chicken breast are pounded less than 1/2 inch thick. You can cut large chicken breast in half.
Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Prepare the chicken by dipping the chicken in the butter mixture first, then the crumb mixture. Coat on both sides.
Once the skillet is hot, add in 1-2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil. Place the chicken in the pan, and cook for 4-5 minutes per side. Once heated through, pour in the marinara sauce. Heat the sauce until bubbly.
While chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a blender, blend cashews, chicken broth, dijon mustard, nutritional yeast, and salt until smooth.
Serve chicken over zucchini noodles with marinara sauce, cheese sauce, and fresh basil.
*Use a high quality marinara sauce that is sugar free like Rao's.
