What to make for dinner on a low carb, gluten free diet? Part II

Wednesday Night's Dinner

Chicken Parmesan – Gluten free and low carb

1 – 1.5 lb. chicken breast (pound to make tender)
3 tbs. Gluten-free bread crumbs (Schar brand)
¼ cup almond flour
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 egg
¼ cup coconut milk
Low sugar marinara sauce (I use Trader Joe’s Tomato Basil Marinara)
3 -5 ounces of provolone cheese

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine bread crumbs, almond flour, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in bowl.
- In a separate bowl combine one egg and coconut milk (can substitute your milk preference, (i.e. almond milk).
- Dip each chicken breast into egg mixture, then dip into bread crumb mixture, and place on a greased baking pan.Bake for 30 minutes.
- Top chicken with cheese and tomato sauce. Then bake for another 5 – 10 minutes.

Eggplant Fries or Eggplant noodles (makes a great replacement for both fries and noodles)

1 Eggplant (feeds two)
2 tbs. Olive oil
Salt/pepper to taste

- Slice raw eggplant into thin strips (I cut the eggplant with a knife, lengthwise into four sections; then use kitchen shears/scissors to cut the sections into fine strips, and discard the heavy seeded pieces).
- Place eggplant strips in a skillet with olive oil.
- Cook over med – high heat for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook until desired crispiness or noodle-like texture.

Side Salad: 
Chopped cucumber and tomato's mixed with Parmesan cheese and Italian Dressing .
