Paleo Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parm

Whipped this up today by request. It’s paleo if you don’t mind Parmesan.

Ingredients:

Crust: 1/4 cup arrowroot starch, 2 tbs paprika, salt and pepper.

1 lbs chicken breasts sliced in half and pounded with a heavy object until flat

1-2 heads of cauliflower, butter, coconut oil and you’re favorite spaghetti sauce. Shallot optional.

To prep the chicken breasts trim any fat off and cut in half. Do this by laying your hand on and running a knife evenly between both sides.

Now you’re two breasts have become four. IMG_1171Cover with saran wrap.IMG_1172

SMASH! SMASH! SMASH! Use a heavy object and pound until thin. IMG_1177

1/4 cup arrowroot, 2 tbsp paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl.IMG_1188Coat chicken in arrowroot starch mix.IMG_1189

Prep cauliflower. Cut stems off and chop. I used 1 and a half for 3 people. You can’t have too much cauliflower.  IMG_1194

Saute with butter or olive oil on medium heat until brown and soft.IMG_1195

Here I am chopping a shallot to add flavor to the spaghetti sauce. This is optional. IMG_1200

Saute shallot in olive oil until brown.IMG_1204Chicken is coated. 2 eggs beat. Parmesan shredded. I ground it up in a food processor. Just get it as fine as you can. Shred it and chop it up with a knife if you have to.

IMG_1241Coconut oil should be hot enough to sizzle chicken but not to hot that the cheese burns before the chicken is cooked through. I would have been better off using a non stick pan. I also found that if I dipped the chicken in egg again after dipping in the parmesan the cheese didn’t stick to the pan.IMG_1262Add sauce to shallots. Saute on medium heat to warm. IMG_1263
Chicken takes about 4 minutes per side. Flip when cooked over halfway though and begins to brown.
