What is Chicken Cutlet?

The word cutlet means a thin slice of boneless skinless meat from chicken, turkey or veal. And chicken cutlet is seasoned and breaded with batter and then deep-fried or oven-baked.

Ingredients Required To Make These Easy Low Carb Chicken Cutlets

Almond Flour – I am making this keto chicken cutlets with almond flour, but if you don’t have it in hand then substitute with coconut flour (< buy it) or use a combination of both (1/4+1/4 cup)

Panko Breadcrumbs – I made this same recipe with panko crumbs (< buy it) and ti tastes very good, so definitely give it a try and make low carb chicken cutlets with pork rinds

Parmesan Cheese – Always use freshly grated parmesan cheese or store-bought one but don’t use powdered form type parm cheese.

Eggs – I am using eggs but can substitute eggs with melted butter, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well and your egg substitute is ready.

What To Serve With These Keto Chicken Cutlet Parmesan?

I love to serve it with roasted veggies, like carrots, cauliflower, or steamed broccoli or serve with a side of cauliflower mash, on a salad, or with dipping sauces.

And if you are not following a certain diet then serve with roasted potatoes, garlic fries, etc.

  1. I made this tonight & it was really good! I loved your idea of using butter instead of egg before the breading. I don't like the eggy taste & will be using this way for other recipes. Thank you for posting! Cindy S.
