By couldn’t wait, I mean it. This cookbook came in the mail just yesterday! That’s how excited I am about it. Carolyn is an incredible low carb influencer who is also the author of The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen, another fantastic resource for anyone following a keto diet.
When I say the dinners in this cookbook are easy, I mean EASY. But they are in no way recipes that are just for beginners. Easy Keto Dinners is full of 50+ crowd pleasing recipes that are made with ingredients you already have in your fridge and pantry.
With all of life’s hustle and bustle, what could be better than healthy, low carb, delicious meals that you can whip right up and serve to your family? Carolyn gets it, and she NAILED it.
The recipe I’m sharing today is a fun, keto spin on one of my favorites from my higher carb days. Chicken Parmesan.
Keto Chicken Parmesan Casserole
I love casseroles, especially at the end of a long day. There’s something just so satisfying about throwing everything into a dish and popping it into the oven…even more satisfying when the result is delectable AND good for you!
This recipe has such yummy Italian flavors, and even includes one of Carolyn’s bonus recipes for Cheaters Tomato Sauce, low carb goodness you can ONLY find in Easy Keto Dinners.
To make the recipe even quicker, Carolyn suggests using your favorite no-sugar-added marinara in place of the easy Cheater’s Tomato Sauce, so don’t worry if you haven’t ordered your copy yet!
My go-to is usually Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce (only 3 net carbs per 1/2 cup serving)!
