Servings 2 servings


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 onion, diced small
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 12 oz. can crushed imported Italian tomatoes
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, a handful of leaves reserved for topping
  • 1 pinch of oregano
  • 1 pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 pinch of swerve
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, butterflied
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzerella cheese


  • Begin by making the sauce. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the oil and onions. Saute for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another minute before pouring in the canned tomatoes. Also, throw in the whole basil bunch, reserving some leaves for garnish.
  • Simmer the sauce on low while you make the chicken.
  • Butterfly your chicken breasts and season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour the almond flour and Parmesan into a bowl and mix. In another bowl, crack the eggs and whisk.
  • Dip each butterflied chicken into the almond flour mixture, followed by egg, and once again into the almond flour. Set the chicken aside on a plate.
  • Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Once hot, add the chicken cutlets and cook 6-8 minutes per side, depending on size.
  • Once cooked, remove the chicken to a wire rack. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • On a baking sheet, lay out the chicken. Top with cheese and a few spoonfuls of tomato sauce. Bake in the oven until the cheese melts and turns lightly browned.


This is a great baking pan at a steal of a price!
