Please help!
 
I had planned on making a yummy chicken parm dish this weekend cause I"m looking for a low carb sauce and I can't find it anywhere. It's hunts no sugar added Italian baking sauce. I live in pa so I tried the local giant eagle and community market. Any ideas?

You might try this one
 
PARMESAN CHICKEN
3 large boneless chicken breasts
2 ounces parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup
2 ounces almond flour, 1/2 cup
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup oil, or as needed
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 tablespoons spaghetti sauce
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

Cut each chicken breast in half to make 2 servings from each; cover with plastic wrap and flatten. Mix 1/2 cup parmesan, almond flour, garlic powder and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish or pie plate. Put the beaten egg in a separate shallow dish or pie plate. Dip each chicken breast in egg to coat, then lightly coat them with parmesan-almond mixture. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the chicken in hot oil until browned and the meat is almost done, but still slightly pink in the center.

Place the chicken breasts in a foil-lined and greased rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Top each with 1 tablespoon of spaghetti sauce, then 1/6 of the mozzarella. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 about 20 minutes until chicken is done and cheese is melted and bubbly.

Makes 6 servings
Can be frozen

I have that recipe but can't find the sauce anywhere

Neither can I, any more. Use the lowest carb spaghetti sauce or marinara that you can find.

Are any of these brands available to you in your grocery store? These are all no sugar added Sauces that I've used

Ragu Light - Not fond of this. Used this when I was new to low carbing but I've found better sauces since that time. This one is cheap though.

Silver Plate - Used to only get this at a specialty market but my local Krogers now carries it. 4 grams of carbs per serving and its pretty good

Gia Russa - A bit on the pricy side. But pretty good stuff

Do you have a Marshall's, Ross, TJ Maxx or Home Goods? They sometimes have no sugar added sauces. I've found a few goodies there.

I live near Philly, and I know I have seen reduced sugar marinara sauce at more than 1 place. I make my own, though.

I'd use canned or boxed tomato puree and add garlic and onion powder, salt, and some oregano or Italian herb blend. That's all they do to make the sauce commercially, and you can control the added ingredients this way.

If you want to try that, try to find tomato puree that doesn't start with tomato paste and water as its first two ingredients though. You may as well start with tomato paste if that's all you can find.

My favorite sauce is store bought spaghetti sauce Classico. It does not have added sugar

Which variety? I'm looking on their website and every one I have looked at has sugar as an ingredient.

I use Ragu Light No Sugar Added Tomato Basil when I need to use spaghetti sauce, but I use it sparingly and infrequently. It tastes fine to me, but I am open to trying other brands.

ETA: Ok, I see the Classico Tomato & Basil and Roasted Garlic do not have sugar on the ingredient list. It has fewer carbs than the Ragu Light No Sugar Added, too. Might try it, thanks.

Roasted Garlic is my favorite. Weird is that their pizza sauce does have sugar in it.

When you have a chance, you may want to order a couple jars of Bella Vita Pasta Sauce from Netrition. I really like the Roasted Garlic one. A bit pricey - 3.99 a jar but 4 carbs per serving so worth it.

From Netrition site:

"Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauces Bella Vita
Low Carb Pasta Sauces

Bella Vita (Italian for "Beautiful Life") is made from succulent, vine-ripened sweet plum tomatoes, and is simmered in extra virgin olive oil.

Bella Vita sauces have only 4g net carbs per serving, are cholesterol free and are OU Kosher Pareve. Now you can enjoy healthy, all natural, low carb pasta dishes with plenty of pleasure...and none of the guilt. Now that's a beautiful life."

I also live in PA. I purchase Giant's brand of Marinara sauce (ENJOY is in the title). I am at work so I can't check but I think it is SIMPLY ENJOY. Anyway, 2 carbs per 1/2 cup.
