The coating on this baked chicken is made with pork rinds, rather than flour--up with taste, down with carbs.

  • Servings: 4

Ingredients:

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Large Bag Fried Pork Rinds
½ tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
½ tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper
2 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped
1 Egg
2 Tbsp Heavy Cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor fitted with a steal blade, process pork rinds until the consistency of cornmeal. Pour rinds into a bowl, add salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and parsley. Mix to combine and set aside. In another bowl, beat egg with heavy cream until well incorporated then set aside. Pat chicken breasts dry. Dip each breast into egg mixture, then place into pork rind mixture. Coat both sides with pork rind mixture, and place on a metal cooling rack inside a 1/4 sheet pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
