Traditional Chicken Parmesan is breaded and fried which makes it an unhealthy dinner choice and Italian restaurants are very tricky to navigate if you are trying to eat healthy. This recipe saves the day for people who love Italian food. It is not only health-i-fied but it is so easy it just isn’t fair. This is sure to be a family favorite!
Core & Advanced Plan
2-4 boneless, skinless organic chicken breast halves (if they are very thick, you can pound them with a meat mallet to make them thinner)
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 t Italian Seasoning
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t kosher salt
1 T olive oil
1 beaten organic egg
sliced or shredded organic mozzarella cheese
Jarred marinara sauce (check ingredients for NO sugar)
Spread the olive oil into the bottom of your crockpot. Whip the egg with a fork in a separate bowl and mix the almond meal with the seasonings and the Parmesan cheese in another separate dish. Set up your dishes in assembly line form. Dip the chicken into the egg, then into the almond meal mixture, coating both sides with eggs, almond meal and seasonings.
Place the chicken breast pieces in the bottom of the crockpot and layer mozzarella cheese on top and cover with entire jar of marinara sauce. Close lid and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours
