  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsps parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 2 tsps garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella
  • 2 tbsps parsley


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Heat olive oil in a cast iron pan over medium-high heat.
  • In a shallow bowl (I used a pie plate) combine the almond flour, parmesan cheese, basil, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Take the chicken breasts, dip in the egg mixture, and then coat with the almond flour mix.
  • Transfer to the hot pan. Fry for 4 minutes on each side.
  • While the chicken is cooking, cook the side dish (I used gluten free pasta and broccoli).
  • Layer some of the marinara on the bottom of a 9x13 pan, then add the cooked noodles and/or broccoli, and the chicken.
  • Top with the rest of the sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, and parsley.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
