About 10-12 grams carbohydrate per serving
4 chicken cutlets about 4 oz each
4 slices fresh mozzarella
1 cup crushed tomato
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz heavy cream
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 Tablespoons chopped basil
2 Tablespoons corn starch or arrowroot
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups crushed pork rinds (suggested brand Porq)
2 eggs, whisked
2 teaspoons Pro Seasoning All Purpose
1 teaspoon Pro Seasoning Everything But the Salt
1 cup avocado oil
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Method of prep:
Preheat a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil to the pan. Once the oil shimmers, add onions and cook until translucent. Next, add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the tomato paste and crushed tomato and bring to a gentle boil while stirring. Then add the heavy cream and bring the sauce to a gentle boil. Lower the heat to medium low to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Season with Pro Seasoning All Purpose to taste, and add half of the basil. Use the other half of the basil for garnish before serving.
For the cutlets, season cutlets with Pro Seasoning All Purpose and Everything but the Salt. Dredge cutlets in corn starch or arrow root mixed with baking powder and shake as much of the excess off as possible (this will ensure we are cutting as much carbs as possible). Next, add the eggs to a bowl and dredge the cutlets. Finally, add the pork rind powder to another bowl, and dredge the chicken until covered.
Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. Add avocado oil to the pan and allow to heat. Once the oil is slightly smoking, add the cutlets to the pan and reduce to medium. Brown the chicken on both sides and cook to 165 degrees internal temperature. Remove chicken from pan. Top with warm sauce and mozzarella cheese. Brown the top in an air fryer or broiler if desired. Garnish with chopped basil. Serve over zucchini noodles!
