- 1 pound chicken breasts (2-3 chicken breasts)
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or seasoning of choice
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 cup grated or zested parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons olive oil or butter, or oil of choice
- Start by laying the chicken breasts out on a cutting board and cutting them in half horizontally. This will result in thinner chicken cutlets that cook faster and more evenly. Generously season both sides of the chicken with Italian seasoning (or your preferred seasoning), garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
- In a medium shallow bowl, combine the grated parmesan cheese and almond flour. This mixture will serve as the crispy coating for the chicken. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten.
- Dip each chicken cutlet into the whisked eggs, ensuring it is fully coated. Then, transfer the chicken to the parmesan and almond flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating to both sides. Shake off any excess breading. Repeat this process until all the chicken cutlets are fully coated.
- Heat olive oil or butter (or your preferred oil) in a large non-stick heavy-duty pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken cutlets in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for approximately 5-6 minutes on each side, or until the coating turns golden and crispy. Avoid flipping the chicken until the parmesan crust is golden on the first side to ensure it stays intact. Repeat with the remaining chicken cutlets.
- Once cooked, transfer the chicken cutlets to a serving platter. They are now ready to be enjoyed as a delicious and satisfying dinner option.
