How to make Low Carb Chicken Tenders with Parmesan Pork Rind Breading

low carb chiken tenders keto recipe with pork rind breading
I had been browsing online for ideas on how to make low carb chicken tenders. On Youtube, I found a video for low carb breaded pork chops. The author was using crushed pork rinds instead of the usual bread crumbs. Seems like a great idea that I had to try. Using crushed pork rinds is something I'm familiar with since we use it as garnishing for pansit palabok (a Filipino style noodle) quite a lot.

Chicken Tenders

  • Four boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 medium bag of pork rinds
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 4 eggs
  • Peanut oil to fry

Step 1. Cut up chicken breasts into desired pieces.

Step 2. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs thoroughly.

Step 3. In a food processor, combine pork rinds, garlic powder, salt and Parmesan until desired consistency is reached.

Step 4. Place mixture in a separate medium bowl.

The video says crushing the pork rinds manually if you don't have a food processor. This could work too, but I'm unsure of how it'll turn out.

Step 5. Heat up peanut oil in a pan until hot enough to fry chicken.

Step 6. Dip each piece of chicken into egg bowl until thoroughly covered.

Step 7. Then roll egg-coated chicken in the parmesan/pork rind bowl until coated evenly.

Step 8. Fry chicken in pan until cooked thoroughly.

Step 9. Drain on a wire rack.

Repeat until all pieces of chicken are cooked. And if you really like tasty chicken dishes, try this recipe for Thomas Keller chicken. It's delicious.

Here's the video that I used for inspiration. Maybe next time, I'll bake instead of frying.
