I’ve been struggling a little with what to name this recipe. I considered “Lower Carb Chicken Parmesan,” “Higher Fiber Chicken Parmesan”, but neither really appeals to me, since I rarely make food choices based on the carb/fiber content of the meal alone. “No Breadcrumb Chicken Parmesan” would work, but that just sounds soggy to me, and this recipe definitely not soggy. I even considered the click-bait title “This Chicken Parmesan Has No Breadcrumbs, You Won’t Believe What We Used Instead” but I hate those types of titles.
In truth, “Oat Bran Chicken Parmesan” doesn’t do this recipe justice, but that’s what it is. After my amazing crispy ranch chicken recipe, I decided to try another variation, and that’s what led to this recipe, which should probably be called “Amazingly Crunchy and Delicious I-Can’t-Believe-It’s-Not-Breadcrumbs Chicken Parmesan.”
You can serve this with noodles, zucchini noodles, whatever works for you.
