Lemon & Parmesan Crusted Chicken

This week, I'm sharing one of my favorite chicken recipes because it has amazing color, texture, and taste!

I love citrusy flavors, so using grated lemons are right up my alley. It brings a nice pop of flavor. And for the crust, I'm using Pork Panko again! Pork Panko is a finely ground panko breadcrumb made from pork rinds. It's ideal for high protein, low- carb recipes (like this one). It's gluten-free and carb-free... a total game changer for those looking for an alternative to breadcrumbs.


  • 3- 4 Chicken Breasts

  • 2 tbsp Ghee (melted)

  • 2 tsp Sea Salt

  • 2 tsp Black Pepper

  • 3/4 cup Pork Panko

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese

  • 2 tbsp Green Onions (thinly sliced)

  • 2 tsp Grated Lemon Peel

  • 1/4 tsp Dried Thyme Leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Mix pork panko, Parmesan cheese, green onions, lemon peel and thyme in small bowl. Stir remaining 1 tablespoon of ghee.

  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Over medium heat cook chicken for 5- 7 minutes on both sides.

  4. Blot excess oil from chicken. Brush remaining 1 tablespoon of ghee on top of chicken. Press pork panko mixture evenly on chicken.

  5. Bake uncovered 15 to 25 minutes or until chicken is done.
