The first time I tried Crepini Egg Thins I knew I had a super easy hack to bring pasta-tasting lasagna back into our family with a recipe that even non-keto folks would embrace.

All it took was slightly tweaking my family lasagna recipe to make it a delicious, easy keto-friendly lasagna that can be put together and enjoyed quickly.

Look, I get it. There is no denying that if you’re a fan of pasta and doing keto, missing pasta can make it quite challenging to stay committed. But that no longer has to be the case.

Not only will using cauliflower egg thins in place of lasagna noodles keep you on track but it’s a ridiculously easy option since there is no need to boil the noodles.

Not familiar with Crepini egg wraps?  They are premade packaged crepes made with eggs and cauliflower powder.

By using eggs and cauliflower powder in their crepes they have found a way to have a zero net carb, pliable, great tasting wrap.

It’s basically, a crepe that gains its structure from the added cauliflower powder.

How To Make Keto Chicken Lasagna Easily

I am sharing my homemade chicken tomato sauce that has zero added sugar to ensure it stays low in carbs.

But if you want to save time, you could also try using a sauce like Rao’s marinara sauce or Yo Mama’s Foods both of which are keto-friendly options. Or your favorite pasta sauce.

In fact, you can even use a rotisserie chicken that has been shredded and mix it with a premade sauce to shave off even more time. 

Then it’s a matter of making the ricotta filling by combing whole ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, and spices.

This recipe makes a 13×9 inch size chicken lasagna.  You’ll be will be cutting each wrap in half, making it easier to layer.

Then you’ll alternate layers of chicken sauce, crepe, and ricotta cheese filling. Once that’s done, you’ll top it with shredded mozzarella cheese and freshly grated parmesan cheese before it’s baked in a preheated 350-degrees oven. 

Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with a small side salad to round out this main dish. I’m confident it’s a low carb chicken that will be added to your keto meal planning schedule.

Ingredients

Chicken Tomato Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 pounds of boneless chicken thighs, cooked and shredded
  • 28-ounces of crushed tomatoes
  • 4 ounces of tomato paste
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons of dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of dried onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried garlic powder
  • 3 cloves of fresh garlic crushed
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

Ricotta Cheese Layer

  • 15 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

Egg thins

  • 1 pack of 12 Crepini egg thins with cauliflower wraps sliced in half for a total of 24 slices. Or one 6 pack of large wraps cut into 12 slices.

Mozzarella Cheese Topping

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Cook your chicken thighs in a pot on your stovetop. To do so place the chicken thighs on the bottom of a large pot and season them with salt and pepper. Cover the thighs with about 1 1/2 inches of water. Note that you can overlap the thighs but if they are too crowded you should use a larger pot, or two pots instead. Then bring the water to a low simmer and cook from 10-15 minutes until the chicken turns opaque and is fully cooked or reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. Then drain the thighs and shred them. I shred my chicken in a stand-up mixer it's the quickest way.
  2. In a large pot set over medium heat, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  3. Add the garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook, until the garlic, is translucent.
  4. Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and water.
  5. Next add the oregano, basil, and salt.
  6. Add the shredded chicken thighs and allow the sauce to cook for about 10 minutes. Set the sauce aside.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  8. To make your cheese filling in a large bowl combine the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese. Next, add the egg, and the nutmeg and combine well.
  9. Slice each Crepin wrap in half to make it easier to layer. Set them aside.
  10. To a 13x9 well-baking dish, add two tablespoons of the chicken tomato sauce and one tablespoon of olive oil, spread in the baking dish. Next, add half the amount of Crepini halves slightly overlapping the pieces.
  11. Add the ricotta cheese filling and spread evenly across the top.
  12. Add the remaining Crepini halves over the surface of the ricotta cheese filling.
  13. Top with the remaining chicken sauce across the ricotta cheese layer and spread evenly. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top.
  14. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the surface.
  15. Bake the chicken keto lasagna for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the lasagna is bubbling and the top is lightly brown. Let stand for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

Faster Tip

You can save time by using two jars Rao's marinara sauce or Yo Mama's Foods both of which are keto-friendly options instead of making the sauce. You can also use half a rotisserie chicken that has been shredded instead of cooking the chicken thighs for a faster meal.

Make-Ahead Tip


Feel free to assemble the lasagna and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours and then bake for a make-ahead option.
