Cuisine Italian


  • 3/4 cup almond flour + additional tablespoons if it is still sticky!
  • 1 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese set aside
  • 2 tbs cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBS Olive oil optional
  • 1 TBS Each: Basil Oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup of Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 TBS olive oil


  • For the Cheesy Bread- In a kitchen mixer bowl, lightly whisk the almond flour and crack the egg into the bowl
  • Add seasoning to the kitchen mixer bowl
  • In a pan, slowly melt 1 1/2  shredded mozzarella cheese and and 2 TBS cream cheese until the cheeses form a smooth ball
  • Drop the cheese ball into the kitchen mixer bowl and use the paddle to mix the dough together
  • Use a sturdy spatula to scrape the bowl and place dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Use olive oil on your hands and spatula to keep the dough from pulling apart too much
  • Use a second sheet of parchment paper and lay it on top of the dough. Use a rolling pin or your hand to roll out a small loaf for bread.
  • The dough doesn't need to be thin like pizza crust, make it as thick as you would prefer your bread to be.
  • Top it with remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and set aside to cool
  • For the chicken strips- Heat a medium pan, add olive oil and warm oil
  • Cut your chicken breast(s) into even strips
  • Lightly coat in the breadcrumbs
  • Place in pan and cover pan with a lid
  • Cook on Medium-High. Flip after 5 minutes to brown the second side of the chicken strips
  • Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until cooked thoroughly
  • Enjoy with Keto Cheesy Bread and marinara sauce
