NOT SO FRIED, FRIED CHICKEN! RECIPE MAKE OVER!

What’s not to love about fried chicken? It’s crunchy, juicy, flavorful & perfect for dipping in sauce! I just gave this recipe a makeover! Super excited to spiff this one up for two reasons… ONE: this super low carb/ high fat fried chicken is soooo my jam right now with my keto paleo thing. TWO: This recipe was originally inspired by Kyndra Holley of Peace Love & Low Carb, who now, a year after originally writing this recipe has become a blogger pal of mine! In her book The Low Carb Primal Kitchen she has a killer recipe for pork rind crusted chicken. Obvs due to her blog handle, she’s been on the low carb train forever! Love this lady!

YOU INSPIRE ME!

Oh! So the original recipe called for a flash fry then bake, but one of you… Yes! I love when you tag in on Instagram when you make my recipes… well PaleoPiggy made these and skipped the frying, because, let’s be honest, it’s messy. And hers came out suuuuhhhh pretty, I tried it that way too! Low and behold the recipe was still BOMB.COM. So! Here it is. Re-written and re-photographed.

Ingredients
  1. 1lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  2. 1lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  3. 2 cups crispy pork rinds (Epic Bar Salt + Pepper ones are bomb)
  4. 2 cups hazelnut meal
  5. 1 tsp Wild Foods Co Truffle Salt (or favorite salt)
  6. 1 tbsp garlic powder
  7. 1 tsp black pepper
  8. 1 tsp mustard powder
  9. 3 eggs, beat
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F. Place a cooling rack or broil rack over the sheet pan and spray with fat. Set aside.
  2. Pulse pork rinds, hazelnut meal & seasoning in a food processor until pork rinds are crumbly and the mix looks like flour. Pour out on to a large plate.
  3. In a bowl beat eggs together until frothy.
  4. Cut your chicken into strips. Make them as uniform as possible. I like them to be about 2 inches around and 4-5 inches long.
  5. Dredge chicken in eggs then in breading mix and place or prepared baking rack/sheet.You only need to coat the thighs once, just make sure they are evenly coated.
  6. Bake at 400F for 40-45 minutes until toasty!
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  8. I like to mix up some sauces for dipping! Some of our favorites include mayo + dijon mustard, mayo + ketchup + mustard, guacamole, chimichurri + mayo and Primal Kitchen Ranch!
  9. Meal Prep
  10. These store really well! Let them come to room temp then store in an air tight container. Toast or make to heat!
