Who doesn’t love a classic flavorful chicken parmesan? This chicken parmesan recipe is a hit in our home and for good reason! While I love to eat mine with a salad, zoodles or even steamed veggies, the hubby and the kids love to eat theirs with pasta.
Can you make chicken parmesan in the oven?
Absolutely! I highly recommend you getting an air fryer, but in the meantime, you can follow the steps below and place chicken on parchment paper, spray with cooking oil and bake at 400 degrees at 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven top with sauce and cheese and place back in the oven until cheese has melted.
Is Chicken Parmesan low carb?
This recipe is! Traditional chicken parmesan recipes are made with bread crumbs but for this recipe, I used a mixture of ground pork rinds and parmesan cheese. You can also choose to use almond flour and or coconut flour.
Either will work but I prefer the mixture of pork rinds and parmesan cheese because it gives the chicken a delicious crispy golden texture that everyone loves, without all the carbs.

Yes, but keep in mind that the chicken won’t be as crispy unless you reheat in the air fryer.
To make this low carb recipe you’ll need
Chicken Breasts: You’ll need either 4 4 oz chicken breast or 1 pound sliced in half.
Ground Pork Rinds: Chicken breasts will be dipped in egg wash and coated in a mixture of ground pork rinds and parmesan cheese.
Parmesan Cheese: Since you’ll be mixing the pork rinds with the parmesan cheese you can opt for freshly grated or pre-grated.
Seasoning: I kept things simple and only used garlic powder, onion powder along with some salt and pepper, but you can also use Italian seasoning, cajun seasoning or even add red pepper flakes for some kick!
Cooking Spray: To cook the chicken in the air fryer you’ll want to spray both sides of chicken with cooking oil.
