This tender keto veal parmesan has an incredible keto breading that is nut free, gluten free and tastes out of this world amazing!
A keto breading that works for any kind of meat you might be frying is usually just made with crushed pork rinds. It works, but isn’t really like an Italian breading made for chicken or veal parmesan. I’ve discovered a tastier option and I’m sharing this keto breading with you today which is an exclusive recipe in my cookbook, Naturally Keto. Using a special ingredient, this keto breading is fantastic for all your frying type recipes that you have missed and loved!
VEAL OR CHICKEN PARMESAN
Chicken parmesan is a traditional Italian family favorite recipe. Making a keto version for the breading traditionally made with breadcrumbs is how I created all the same flavors and texture of my beloved childhood recipe. Veal or chicken cutlets will equally work in this tender keto parmesan. In fact you could even use turkey cutlets! Choose your favorite, but be sure to pound the cutlets very thin so they fry up quickly and are perfectly tender!

Keto Veal Parmesan
- 8 veal cutlets (3 ounces each)
- 3/4 cup crushed pork rinds
- 3/4 cup unflavored whey protein powder
- 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 3 eggs beaten
- 1/2 cup avocado oil for frying
- 20 ounces marinara sauce divided
- 8 ounces mozzarella cheese divided
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- fresh parsley to serve
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the cutlets between pieces of parchment paper and use a meat mallet to pound the cutlets to about 1/8 inch in thickness.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the pork rind crumbs, whey, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder.
In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs together.
Dip one cutlet at a time into the eggs then breading. Place breaded cutlets on a baking sheet pan while you finish coating the rest.
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Once oil is hot, place 4 cutlets in the pan and fry 2-3 minutes on each side until nicely browned. Remove and fry remaining cutlets.
Pour a half cup of sauce into a 9 by 13 baking dish. Spread it over the bottom. Place 4 cutlets on the sauce. Top with one cup sauce. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese over the sauce. Add 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese over the top. Repeat this for the remaining cutlets. Cover and bake 25-30 minutes until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted. Serve with fresh chopped parsley.
