Tips to make the Best Parmesan Crusted Chicken
- Prepare Chicken: You need Boneless chicken breast. If it's too thick, cut it horizontally into cutlets. This is to ensure uniform cooking.
- Mayonnaise coating: Recipes in general calls for egg coating. I have tried both egg and mayo coating. Though egg coating works, I found a coating of mayo gives extra richness and keeps chicken super moist. I have added a dash of sriracha to mayo for an extra kick. To keep it keto, use keto-friendly Mayonnaise.
- 2nd coating is of parmesan. For the cheese to stick well, use grated cheese rather than shredded. You could use a zester or fine grater to grate the cheese. Add some Italian seasoning to the cheese for some flavor.
This parmesan crusted chicken is low carb and gluten free. But if you are not under any dietary restriction, you can add 2 tablespoon of all purpose flour or almond flour to the Parmesan mixture.
