3-ingredient Parmesan Chicken

3-ingredient Parmesan chicken

This low carb Parmesan chicken recipe is so simple and so delicious that you almost feel guilty you didn’t put more effort in to it! With only three main ingredients you’ll find that it’s a great last-minute meal when you don’t want to do a big shop.  Keep mayo and shredded Parmesan stocked in the fridge and then all you’ll need are chicken breasts, and voila, dinner problem solved.

This recipe for parmesan chicken freezes really well. I like to buy family packs of chicken breasts and then make up a few batches for the freezer. I use pyrex dishes with plastic lids for freezing, so when it’s time to cook the chicken I just remove the lids and bake them in the pyrex dishes straight from frozen.

This recipe is pretty flexible, so feel free to ballpark the measurements. And feel free to experiment with other cuts of chicken – I use packages of chicken breast pieces when they’re on sale and they work just as well.

Try serving this with Roasted asparagus  and Mashed cauliflower (low carb version) and try serving up some Low carb chocolate mousse for dessert – your family will love it!
