FAST KETO MEALS ARE HELPFUL WHEN YOU’RE BEGINNING
Some people can dive right into something new and keep up that inquisitive pace. But if you’re like me, you’re the other group who need an easy entry. One that’s not overwhelming or too much, too soon.
Luckily this recipe is going to work for both groups but it’s especially helpful if you’re the latter. This low-carb chicken is so satisfying, so easy, and you won’t even miss the normally high-carb count with a simple recipe swap. Moreover, you don’t need a lot of new products that you’ve yet to buy.
Simple is the name of the game for the Lazy Keto Diet which typically limits carbs to 20 – 50 grams per day. This is a great place to start! Here’s a great article from People’s Choice Beef Jerky if you’d like to delve a little deeper.
But what is that product swap I’ve mentioned?
As shown above, this is one of the holy grail products that you should get for your cupboard. You’ll be using this product often. In fact, here’s a super-quick Keto English Muffin Recipe that you need to know about. Especially if you love breakfast sandwiches. But don’t worry, this recipe isn’t a lesson in bread making.

EASY LAZY KETO RECIPES FOR BEGINNERS SHOULD HAVE MANY FORMS OF ENJOYMENT
There are many ways to enjoy chicken cutlets. We’ll make an easy roasted tomato jam to top ours today and pair it with a simple arugula salad.
But once you master this preparation, you’ll surely want to come up with different presentations. Will you top one with low-carb marinara and broil a little cheese similar to chicken parmesan?
Or maybe you’ll grab some keto bread and make a sandwich with your favorite fixings? Oooh, what about chopping up the chicken to top a salad? By the same token, you could add some chopped pieces to a low-carb tortilla making a quick BBQ chicken pizza.
SUPER EASY KETO RECIPES
Have you decided which version you’ll make? If you’d like to try it as I did tonight, you’ll want the follow these steps.
First, get your tomatoes in the oven. To do so, we’ll grab some olive oil, garlic, and rosemary (dried or fresh). Mix everything on a small sheet pan (hopefully yours is cleaner than mine 🤣) and bake it for 20 – 30 minutes. Test the tomatoes and add a pinch of salt if desired. This is such a fun item to have in the fridge for other uses.
Next, pound the chicken with a mallet or a rolling pin. The best method for keeping your surface clean is to do this step in between cling wrap. You can also buy thin cutlets from the butcher.
Then, we’ll move on to the cheese and flour. I used a cup of parmesan and half a cup of almond flour and sprinkled in salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Measure the spices with your heart.
Do you have this cheese grater? My bestie, Alicia, sent it to me for my birthday. I’m obsessed. You need this!
LET’S COOK ONE OF THE SUPER EASY AND SATISFYING KETO RECIPES
Your tomatoes should be done but keep the oven on. We’re ready to cook the chicken.
Let’s press the chicken into our cheese and flour mixture. Heat a skillet on the stovetop to medium-high. Add a neutral oil and cook the chicken for about a minute and a half on each side. Transfer the chicken to a rack-lined sheet pan and bake the chicken for 5 – 10 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees.
Finally, dress about a cup of arugula with some olive oil, salt, pepper, a squeeze or two of lemon, and mix it with some parmesan cheese.
Build your plate and you’ve just made a super easy and insanely delicious lazy keto recipe. But, you’re no longer a beginner. You’ve just leveled up!
