These low carb chicken parmesan meatballs are so simple and delicious. I get asked all the time “How can you make meatballs low carb”? Well it is pretty easy, actually. Instead of using a high carb binder like breadcrumbs or crushed crackers, you can use low carb binder substitutions like crushed pork rinds or parmesan cheese. They hold these low carb, keto meatballs together perfectly, while keeping the meatballs incredibly juicy.
