Recipe Creator Keto Chow Community Recipe
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes

Yields:

10 tenders

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 chicken breast halves sliced thin (or use 10 tenderloins)
  • 3/4 cup Pecorino Romano cheese grated (or use Kraft Parmesan)
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 1 serving Savory Chicken Soup Keto Chow
  • 2 cups crushed pork rinds*
  • 1/2 qt. lard or tallow for frying or use peanut oil in a pinch

Directions:

  • Place the chicken in a Ziploc® bag and use a meat pounder to make sure it is thin and even.
  • 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 each 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 first cooling rack.
  • Place the breaded chicken into the pot. Do not overcrowd it, as that will lower the temperature of the oil.
  • Fry for 2 1/2 minutes, then flip and continue frying on the other side for 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Once the chicken is fully cooked, place on the second cooling rack and salt immediately, before it cools.
  • Enjoy with your favorite low-carb sauces or dressings in salads, sandwiches, or just by themselves!
*If desired, add extra spices to the crushed pork rinds to add to the flavor profile! Cayenne pepper, white pepper, or Italian seasoning are all good options.
