Baked Chicken Tenders
Every kids favorite meal gets a keto twist with a non-bread "breading" made from some surprising ingredients. Instead of bread crumbs, crushed pork rinds and Parmesan cheese create a crust that is both crunchy and crisp. Dip in Ranch Dressing or Sugar-Free Ketchup for a real childhood treat.
1/2 cup pork rinds, ground
1/2 shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless chicken thighs, halved
Directions Preparing:15 minCooking:20 min
Step 1Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Step 2Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 3In a medium bowl, beat the eggs.
Step 4In another medium bowl, combine the pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Step 5Create a "breading" station: Line up the egg wash, then the pork rind mixture, then the baking sheet.
Step 6Take one thigh half and dredge thoroughly in the egg wash, then coat in the pork rind mixture, pressing the "breading" into the meat so it adheres. Place the "breaded" thigh on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining thigh halves.
Step 7Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven. Cook for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
