Chicken Parmesan ~ Low Carb ~ Gluten Free ~ Homemade Sauce ~ Zoodles

I was so excited how good this Low Carb Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan came out.
My Family really enjoyed it. I hope you give this recipe a try.

Chicken Parmesan ~ Low Carb ~ Gluten Free ~ Homemade Sauce ~ Zoodles

Use as much or as little chicken as you need
5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
Clean off any excess skin, dry with a paper towel
Place one piece of Chicken at a time in a Zipper Bag
Use a meat mallet to pound out evenly. 1/2” thick

To make the bread crumb topping (Make more or less depending on how much Chicken your using)
Mix together in a bowl with a fork
2 Cups of Almond Meal
¾ Cups Parmesan Cheese
Spices to taste
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Crushed Black Pepper
Italian Seasoning

In another both whisk 2 Eggs

Dip one piece of chicken at a time into the Eggs, Let the excess drip off
Dip into the Almond Meal Mixture, pressing to make sure it sticks on both sides.

Heat a skillet up to Medium High
Add 1/4” Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Place two pieces of breaded Chicken into the oil. Do not over crowd the pan
Fry until golden brown.. about 2-3 Minutes. Turn and brown another 2-3 minutes
Remove the Chicken from the pan and place on a wire rack over a cookie sheet.
This will keep them from getting soggy while browning up the remaining Chicken. Add more Oil to the Pan if needed.
After all the Chicken has been browned place on Cookie sheet sprayed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray
Top with some Tomato Sauce
Sprinkle with some Parmesan Cheese
Sprinkle with 1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Bake in a preheated 400* oven for 15 Minutes
Remove from the oven and top the Chicken with 1 Cup more of Shredded Mozzarella
Bake another 5 minutes or until done.
Use a digital thermometer inserted side ways into the chicken. When it reaches an internal temperature of 165* the Chicken is done. You dont want to over cook the Chicken, otherwise it will be dry.

Homemade Sauce
In a dutch oven or large sauce pan add a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Add 1 Medium Chopped Onion
Cook until transparent, the last minute add fresh Garlic to taste and cook 1 Minute.
Add ½ of a 6 oz. Can Tomato Paste (Remove the rest of the tomato paste and place in a little sandwich baggy and freeze to use for another recipe)
Mix the Tomato Paste with the Onion and Garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes
Deglaze with ½ cup Red Wine, cook off most of the Wine.
28 oz Can of Crushed Tomatoes
14 oz Can of Petite Diced Tomatoes
Spices to taste:
Italian Seasoning
Simmer for 15 minutes, adjust any seasoning. Simmer a total of 1 hour 15 minutes or until thickened.
If it gets to thick add a little water. You want a thick sauce.

This sauce can be used for
Chicken Parmesan
Brown up some ground Beef, Chicken or Turkey and simmer in the sauce
Add some Cooked Sausages and simmer in the Sauce
This sauce freezes beautifully.

Serve the Chicken Parmesan with Zoodles. Pour some sauce over the Zoodles and Sprinkle on some Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
