UPDATE: The Today Show has ranked pork rinds as their favorite chicken finger coating and we're here to celebrate with a new recipe!!
"Best coating overall. 19/20. It’s no surprise that the oily pork rind imparted its rich flavor into the meat, making it one of the juiciest on this list." - The Today Show
I remember the first time I tried a ketogenic diet plan.
It was a dark, rainy Saturday night and I was craving Chick-fil-A. As we all know, those delicious golden chicken nuggets are not keto-compliant, but I was bound and determined.
That evening, I spent a couple of hours concocting the perfect low carb chicken nugget using some pork rinds that I had on hand.
The result? I think you'll like this keto chicken with pork rinds recipe. They are crunchy in all the right places. Even better, you can bake them instead of having to waste a bunch of oil. Unlike pan fried chicken tenders, these baked nuggets will have less fat and calories per serving. With some light substitutions, these keto chicken nuggets can even be strict paleo!
One last thing!
You can really create some interesting flavors with your chicken depending on the pork rinds that you choose such as traditional BBQ flavor. My suggestion starting out is to keep it simple and then venture out from there (Chili Cheese Chicken Nuggets, anyone?).
If you want to experiment and try other flavors once you master the simple recipe, here are the most common spices and seasonings used in keto recipes:
Low carb honey mustard dipping sauce: combine mayonnaise, mustard, and honey in a small bowl and dig in!
Keto diet enthusiasts know the challenges of eating low carb without sacrificing the taste.
Whether you go for good old keto fried chicken recipes or choose to bake your chicken with pork rinds, finding a good flavor is the key. Add this delicious, low carb, and gluten free chicken nugget recipe to your meal prepping list and enjoy!
