Clean Chicken Parma

This baby is quickly becoming a huge hit, and it seems the men and children in our lives are number #1 fans! A quick, easy and delicious meal served with your favourite salad or choice of greens topped with grass-fed butter and sea salt. Enjoy. 

Ingredients (Serves 2-3)

  • 4 chicken thigh fillets, free range
  • 1 egg, free range
  • 1 cup almond/hazelnut meal*
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ½ cup coconut oil (we love Coconut Revolution)
  • 4 pieces ham, free range**
  • Sugar Free Tomato Sauce (ideally you have this pre-made in the fridge)
  • 8 slices organic hard cheese


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
  2. Crack egg into a small bowl and whisk well. In a separate bowl, combine almond/hazelnut meal and coconut flour.
  3. Cover chicken thighs well in egg, then coat well in the flour mix.
  4. Heat coconut oil in a large pan and shallow fry chicken on both sides until lightly browned.
  5. Transfer from the frypan onto a lined baking tray. Lay down ham, a tablespoon or two of Sugar Free Tomato Sauce and top with cheese.
  6. Pop in the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve as desired.
