We baked some chicken parmesan for supper. However, we did not follow the instructions, which caused us to make it differently to try to salvage the dish. This was our first time trying this dish at home.
If we had done this right, we would have dipped the chicken breasts in egg and breaded using almond flour with parmesan cheese. However, we mistakenly added the mozzarella to the breading, which couldn't be undone. The result was a goopy mess when it came to frying them in the pan.
To avoid another trip to the grocery store, we coated the chicken in almond flour and parmesan without egg. Mrs Mata says that you should not apply raw egg to cooked chicken. So, we skipped the egg.
We baked the chicken on a bed of marinara sauce. The almond flour browned nicely in about 20 minutes. Then we added parsley and mozzarella on top and baked another 20 minutes.
Although we flubbed the recipe, it still tasted good. In fact, Mrs. Mata does not like breaded foods. I tease her that she should turn in her Texas card if she can't eat chicken fried steak. Despite her dislike of breaded foods, she enjoyed this dish. She even got a second serving.
Overall, this was a keto dish. All the ingredients are low or no carbohydrate.
If we were to change anything, other than following the recipe next time, we would add sliced mushrooms.
