How to Make a Keto Chicken Parm Casserole

This low-carb chicken parmesan casserole is simple; there’s no need to stress over getting dinner on the table with this recipe.

It’s quite similar to a traditional chicken parm recipe but maybe even easier to make.

Plus, with its delicious breading mixture that turns golden brown when you bake it, even picky eaters won’t be able to resist this parmesan chicken casserole recipe. 

Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Next, thoroughly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan. Use some oil instead of butter as your lubricant to make it truly keto. 

After that, use a large mixing bowl to season the shredded chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Then add the sugar-free marinara sauce to the shredded chicken and combine well until the chicken is fully coated in the sauce. Then set it aside.

While your chicken is marinating in the marinara, you’re going to make the breading mixture.

In a small bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Then set it aside.

Now it’s time to assemble the chicken casserole (the most fun part!). The chicken tossed in the marinara sauce will be the first layer of the casserole.

Lay it across the baking pan. You’re not making lasagna, so there is no need to save any chicken for later layers. Use the entire batch of chicken in the first layer. 

Next, sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly on top of the chicken layer. Then, top the casserole with the prepared breaded mixture and bake for 35-30 minutes in the preheated oven.

Since the chicken is already cooked, you don’t need to worry about cooking the casserole until the chicken reaches a certain temperature.

Instead, focus on how the top of the casserole looks. If it’s golden brown, it’s ready. 

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze them for up to 3 weeks. 

This recipe can also be made with half a leftover rotisserie chicken that has been deboned.

The casserole can also be prepared ahead of time. Simply layer it and either freeze it or refrigerate it until you’re ready to bake it.

Then follow the pre-heating and baking instructions. If you bake it right after pulling it from the fridge or freezer, the cooking time will be a little longer. 

Enjoy!

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

Do you know that it wasn’t until Randy and I began to combine the promises of God’s word about healing and changed our diet to a ketogenic one that we finally began to see our health improve?

By cutting out the junk and focusing on real foods, we gave our bodies the nutrition they needed.

Then our bodies did what God designed them to do, to heal it selves. This is what we believe it means to live in divine health.

This act of obedience is what gave birth to our Fittoserve Group.

Today, we are seeing thousands of lives impacted, and the ripple effect of our decision to combine our Christian faith with the keto diet is making a difference in ways we may never know this side of eternity.

Consider joining our Private Facebook Group where others are combining their Christian Faith with that of a ketogenic lifestyle.

I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith. 

Be sure to request our FREE Jesus and Keto E-Book (First 7 Days). We hope it blesses you.
