UPDATE: The Today Show has ranked pork rinds as their favorite chicken finger coating and we're here to celebrate!!
"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 nuggets are not keto-compliant, but I was bound and determined.
That evening, I spent a couple of hours concocting the perfect chicken nugget using some pork rinds that I had on hand.
The result? I think you'll like these. They are crunchy in all the right places. Even better, you can bake them instead of having to waste a bunch of oil. With some light substitutions, these can even be strict keto or paleo!
One last thing! You can really create some interesting flavors 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?).
