Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Over Sprouts

Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Over SproutsLow Carb Chicken Parmesan Over SproutsLow Carb Chicken Parmesan Over Sprouts. A pretty study in the Italian flag colors of red, white, and green.  It is ridiculous that I have never posted a recipe for Chicken Parmesan but I am only human and as I was doing the Puttanesca Over Mung Bean Sprouts I realized instead of doing this over something like spaghetti squash why not also make Chicken Parmesan Over Mung Bean Sprouts too. Heaven only knows how many recipes I have replaced flour using pork skins but this is at least the latest.  You need to trust me on this, fried pork skins keep EVERYTHING moist.  I have said I fry my own pellets but you can easily enough buy pork skins and even buy the ground Pork Dust here.  This is a very simple & easy recipe and I can’t imagine what the carb difference would be between real pasta and mung bean sprouts but I do know this, I can eat sprouts and I can’t eat pasta.
