The beloved combination of pasta, meat, tomato sauce, and multiple cheeses baked together into heavenly layers offers nostalgic joy… And makes killer leftovers!

However when I’m trying to stick to a low carb diet plan, of course, this glorious carby creation is the first thing I crave.

Keto Chicken Lasagna Cups Tips & Tricks

Can I add meat sauce instead of marinara?

Yes! The more meat the merrier. 

Can I freeze these?

Absolutely. Just be sure to thaw them slowly on the counter, at room temperature.

I can’t find chicken cutlets at the market. Can I cut my own?

Of course! Cut large chicken breast parallel to the cutting board, the same length and width as the breast. Make sure the cutlets are thin, so they will bake though. 

What’s the best way to reheat the lasagna cups?

Honestly, I think the microwave is the best way to heat the leftovers. That’s why these little guys are so great to take to work in your lunchbox.

Ingredients

  • 24 chicken cutlets (thin cut)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1 cup sugar-free marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 12-cup muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Lay a thin chicken cutlet in each muffin cup. Overlap the ends to form little bowls, so the filling stays inside.

  3. In a small bowl, mix 1 cup shredded mozzarella, ricotta cheese, cream cheese, garlic, Italian seasoning salt and crushed red pepper.

  4. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the cheese filling into each chicken cup. Then spoon 2 teaspoons of marinara sauce over the top of the cheese filling. Cover each cup with an extra tablespoon of shredded mozzarella cheese.

  5. Bake the cups for 25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese filling is bubbly. 

  6. Lift the chicken cups out of the muffin tin. (There will be some juices in the bottom of the pan.) Set on a serving platter and serve warm.

Recipe Notes

Chicken Cutlets: You can make chicken cutlets by slicing whole boneless chicken breasts into thin slices, the length and width of the breast. For small breasts, cut into 3 cutlets. For large chicken breasts cut into 4-5 cutlets. If the chicken cutlets are too thick they will not cook through.

Leftover Love: These little cups make fabulous leftovers and lunchbox items!

Sugar Free Marinara: If you can't find sugar-free marinara in a jar, you can make your own, or use canned crushed tomatoes instead.
