This Low Carb, Paleo Chicken Parmesan made with almond flour is a healthier version of your favorite Italian comfort food dish!

Low Carb Chicken Parmesan [Paleo-Friendly]
Chicken parm was my go-to growing up. I ordered it EVERYWHERE. Chicken parmesan platters, subs, you name it, I ordered it! If you’ve tried the Eggplant Parm from my cookbook, you know I take these kinds of dishes VERY seriously.
I am so excited to partner with my friends at Shenandoah Valley Organic to bring you today’s post! SVO is truly one of my favorite chicken companies because they pride itself in producing the highest quality chicken grown on family-owned farms. Their chickens are humanely raised and fed a diet free from animal byproducts, pesticides, and antibiotics. On their website you can see where all of the farms are located, so you know just where your chicken was raised, which I LOVE.
Not only is this low carb option healthier and made with good ingredients, it also has that crispy breading that we know and love on our chicken parmesan!
Pair it with zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, or gluten-free pasta for the ultimate Italian comfort food!
