  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Paleo Chicken Parmesan, grain free and dairy free, but not missing that great classic flavour.


  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • Organic crushed tomatoes with basil (I used Thomas Utopia brand)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 3 tbsp fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 3/4 tsp salt


  1. Sauté onions, garlic, 2 tbsp fresh parsley, oregano, and ghee.
  2. Add crushed tomato, salt (1/2 tsp), and honey. Continue to simmer. (The honey cuts the acidity and bitterness of the crushed tomato).
  3. Butterfly the chicken breasts and “beat your meat”, with a mallet or meat tenderizer, set aside.
  4. Place lightly beaten egg in a wide shallow dish.
  5. Combine coconut flour, almond meal, and salt (1/4 tsp) in another wide shallow dish.
  6. Spoon a generous amount of cashew cheese in the middle of the chicken breasts. (see picture).
  7. Layer a little tomato sauce over the cashew cheese (recipe below).
  8. Fold the chicken breast over on its self.
  9. Gently dredge the filled chicken breast first in the egg, then generously coat with the flour mixture.
  10. Place in a baking dish, cover with remaining tomato sauce, a dollop of cashew cheese and the remaining parsley.
  11. Bake 350F for 40 minutes.
