Paleo Chicken Parmesan

This paleo chicken parmesan recipe is a fantastic take on the classic Italian variation. It has a lovely almond crumb topped with a rich homemade marinara sauce. It can be eaten just by itself or with a delicious paleo friendly side dish.

As you may notice this recipe is missing cheese, that is because cheese is considered not paleo friendly. So depending on how strict you’re on your own diet you can add some if you want.

Personally, I would probably add something like mozzarella or Parmesan, but it all comes down to personal preference.

You can have this dish just by itself or with a delicious side. I had this with a fresh salad of cherry tomatoes, spiral zucchini and a drizzle of olive oil. I use a spiralizer to get the cool effect of the zucchini in the photo above.

If you’re not feeling like a salad, then something like crunchy sweet potato fries always goes well with lovely chicken parmesan. However, it just comes down to what you feel like.

Cooking Tips

  • If you decide you want to top this off with a bit of cheese, then be sure to place it under the grill or in a preheated for 5-10 minutes. Alternatively baking in a preheated oven (180°C/350°F) for about 10 minutes should be fine as well.
  • When cooking the chicken make sure you don’t fiddle with it too much as the coating may start to fall off.
  • A thick coating on the chicken can be achieved by simply repeating step four twice for each piece of chicken.
  • If you enjoy a sauce with a bit of spice, then I recommended adding one teaspoon of fresh red chili with or without seeds.

If you think the marinara sauce may be a little too much and you just want the chicken by itself either just leave the sauce or check out my crunchy paleo fried chicken recipe. It has a slightly different coating to the one in this recipe.
