  • Summary

    This ultra crispy Parmesan Crusted Chicken is 5 ingredient, 10 minute magic that happens to be gluten free. The idea with this recipe is that shredded parmesan melts, tuns golden and adheres to the chicken, forming a crust. Parmesan has such an intense flavour that you don't need any other seasonings in this. It tastes like schnitzel, but the coating flavour is far stronger and crunchier (but no carbs!) but is not as thick as a traditional breadcrumb coating.  Serve it with cauliflower mash with browned butter for the ultimate low-carb meal!  Recipe VIDEO below.

    Ingredients

    • 500 g / 1 lb chicken breast (2 pieces) ( (Note 1))
    • 1 egg
    • 1 garlic clove (, minced (optional))
    • Salt and pepper
    • 125 g / 4 oz / 1 1/4 cups shredded parmesan ((Note 2))
    • 2 tbsp butter ((or more oil))
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
