Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Meatballs
These keto chicken parmesan meatballs are so simple and delicious. I get asked all the time "How can you make meatballs low carb"? Well it is pretty easy, actually. Instead of using a high carb binder like breadcrumbs or crushed crackers, you can use low carb binder substitutions like crushed pork rinds or parmesan cheese. They hold these low carb, keto meatballs together perfectly, while keeping the meatballs incredibly juicy.
Just a few notes about these low carb chicken parmesan meatballs. Ground chicken is very soft and is hard to form into meatballs. But, once you get them rounded, they will keep their shape. Alternately, you can also substitute ground turkey or ground beef. You can even use ground pork if you like. Using ground beef or ground pork will increase the fat content, making them more keto friendly. I used my Low Carb Marinara Sauce for this recipe. Feel free to substitute a store-bought sauce to make this dish, but be sure to look for a variation free of added sugars. Look for a brand that only uses ingredients like fresh herbs and vegetables. I have no doubt that these low carb meatballs will be going into heavy rotation in your low carb meal planning.
