  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins

Yield: 4 1x


  • 4 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced OR you can thin them with a meat hammer
  • 2 large pasture-raised eggs
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grond black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 cup store-bought marinara sauce
  • 1 (8-ounce) ball fresh mozzarella, drained and torn into 1-inch pieces
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheet with wire rack
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs
  3. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, tapioca starch, parmesan cheese and spices
  4. Dip a chicken breast in the egg and flip to coat both sides, shaking off excess liquid then immediately dredge in the almond flour mixture to coat evenly all over. Shake off excess and set chicken on clean plate. Continue until all the chicken is coated
  5. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until golden brown and cooked through (4-5 minutes on each side)
  6. Remove the pant from heat and ladle sauce over each piece of chicken and add the cheese
  7. Transfer pan to oven and cook for 12-15 minutes until cheese is bubbly! I also broiled for 1 minute.
