How To Make Keto-Friendly Mushroom Chicken
In a small, shallow bowl, combine the almond flour, parmesan cheese, Italian spices, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and bread coating for the boneless chicken breasts, and set it aside.
In another small, shallow bowl, whisk the whole egg with the water for the egg wash.
Next, carefully coat the breast on both sides with the egg wash, dip the chicken cutlets into the breadcrumb mixture, lay the chicken in the coating, turn it over, and press the chicken breasts into the breading to coat well.
Then, shake off the excess breading.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil. Cook each chicken breast for about two minutes without turning until lightly golden brown.
Then flip the chicken and cook until equally brown on the other side, about two minutes more. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
Transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and set it aside while you prepare the mushroom sauce.
The result will be a crispy, flavorful chicken that’s perfect for pairing with the creamy mushroom sauce.
It’s guaranteed to become your next favorite keto chicken recipe!
Type Of Mushrooms That Work Well In This Recipe

- Cremini mushrooms

Making the Keto Mushroom Sauce
To make the keto mushroom sauce, start by melting the unsalted butter in the same pan you cooked the chicken in over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic cloves and sliced mushrooms (I used baby Bella mushrooms).
Cook until the mushrooms are tender and the garlic is fragrant, which should take about 5 minutes.
Next, add the heavy cream, chicken broth, and finely grated parmesan cheese to the pan. Stir the mixture until the cheese is melted and the sauce is heated through.
Simmer the sauce for about five minutes or until it thickens to your desired consistency.
Finally, add two tablespoons of fresh, chopped parsley to the sauce for garnish. Serve the mushroom sauce over the chicken cutlets.
This keto mushroom sauce is quick and easy to make, with only a handful of ingredients needed.
The heavy cream and parmesan cheese give the sauce a rich and creamy texture, while the mushrooms add a savory and earthy flavor to the dish.
Once you have prepared this delicious keto mushroom chicken, there are a variety of ways to serve it. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
- Serve the chicken with a side of asparagus salad, zucchini noodles, or roasted vegetables for a complete and nutritious meal.
- If you’re looking for a heartier meal, try serving the chicken with some cauliflower mash or cauliflower rice. This will help soak up the delicious mushroom sauce and make for a filling and satisfying meal.
No matter how you choose to serve this keto mushroom chicken, it’s sure to be a hit with your family and friends.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement
Our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective; it’s the filter we choose to see from.
When we decided to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
To say we needed God’s intervention is to put it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s lead to embrace the ketogenic diet and combine it with our faith, we got on the path to fundamental transformation.
If you are looking for a Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives, we invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
