Why eat Chicken Parmesan when you can eat Keto chicken parmesan dip?
I have always been a fan of chicken parmesan. In fact, long before I was a blogger and cookbook author, I worked in restaurants for many years. At least 10 of those years were spent working in Italian restaurants, so I have definitely eaten my fair share of chicken parm over the years. The only major difference now is that I am eating low carb chicken parmesan recipes. It’s actually pretty easy to make a keto chicken parmesan recipe. There are a lot of different keto breading recipes these days. Some of my favorite things to use as breading for chicken parmesan are crushed pork rinds, golden flaxseed meal, grated parmesan cheese, or almond flour.
What should I eat this low carb chicken parmesan dip with?
A spoon! Seriously, I would! Often times on a keto diet, coming up with a low carb dip recipe is not the problem. It’s finding acceptable dippers that can prove challenging. Some of my favorite things to use for dippers are sliced english cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, celery, carrots, pork rinds, cheese chips, or low carb Jilz crackers.
What are some fun ways I can change up this keto chicken parmesan dip recipe?
- Mix and match different cheeses
- swap out the chicken for ground beef, or ground pork
- add more fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, thyme, and parsley
- leave the chicken out altogether and then use keto chicken nuggets as dippers
- eat it on keto bread as a hot sandwich
