Fried Chicken

  • NaNchicken breastscut into chunks (or use 10 tenderloins)
  • 0.75cupPecorino Romano cheesegrated (or use Kraft Parmesan)
  • NaNeggs
  • 1serving Savory Chicken Soup Keto Chow
  • 2cupsunseasoned pork rind crumbs* crushed
  • 0.5qt.lard or tallow for frying or use peanut oil in a pinch


  • To make the fried chicken, combine pork rinds and Romano cheese in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs.
  • Add the Keto Chow to a third small mixing bowl.
  • Place two cookie sheets to the side, with a cooling rack over one. The first will be used to place the chicken after it is breaded; the second will be used after the chicken has been cooked.
  • Heat lard or tallow to 400℉ in a cast iron pot. While it is heating, proceed with breading the chicken.
  • Handling one piece of chicken at a time with tongs, coat chicken thoroughly in egg wash and shake off excess.
  • Coat the chicken in the Keto Chow, then place back into the egg wash and shake off excess.
  • Place into the pork rinds and cheese mixture, pressing firmly to coat both sides, then place on the cooking sheet.
  • Place the breaded chicken into the pot. Do not overcrowd it, as that will lower the temperature of the oil.
  • Fry for 2- 4 minutes, turning until each side is brown.
  • Once the chicken is fully cooked, place on the cooling rack and salt immediately, before it cools.
  • To make the orange chicken sauce, measure all ingredients into a large lidded jar or a blender bottle.
  • Tighten lid and shake ingredients until mixed.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and add mixture to the pan.
  • Mix with a whisk intermittently until boiling. Once boiling, whisk frequently for 5 minutes.
  • Pour sauce onto cooked chicken.
