My partner's favorite dish is Chicken Parmigiana, or a “parma” as they are called in Australia. They’re a pub food staple here, served pilled with sauce and cheese, with a generous side of chips and some token greenery on the plate.
I wanted to make this dish keto-friendly and a little lighter. The result was not only really quick and easy to make (provided you have some marinara sauce on hand — I make a big batch and freeze it so that I have some available most of the time) but got the double thumbs up from my partner — winner winner chicken dinner!
In terms of serving, you could serve this low-carb meal with some keto chips made with turnips, cauliflower stalks, broccoli stalks or these Rutabaga Fries to go down the authentic route, however it's also nice served on a bed of cauliflower rice, with zucchini noodles or alongside some steamed greens or roasted veggies such as this Greek Briam.
