Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded 1/2″ thick
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg beaten with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • TOMATO SAUCE:
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 24 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • TOPPING:
  • 6 slices of fresh mozzarella or 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 10 basil leaves, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. Place a saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic, and oregano. Sauté a few seconds until fragrant, add the tomato sauce and salt. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together the almond flour, parmesan, and sea salt in a bowl plate. In the second bowl plate, beat the egg with the salt.
  4. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Dip the chicken cutlets one by one into the egg mixture, and then dredge them in the almond flour mixture. Add a small amount of olive oil to the pan and fry cutlets in batches of two at a time until golden brown on each side (a couple of minutes per side).
  6. Place the pan fried cutlets on a parchment lined baking sheet or in a 9″ x 13″ baking pan. Place a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese over the top of each cutlet, and bake for 6-10 minutes until cheese melts.
  7. Serve immediately with tomato sauce, freshly sliced basil, and your choice of noodles.
