A restaurant classic gets the keto makeover with a surprise ingredient for the outer, crispy breading. Pork rinds substitute for bread crumbs to create a crunch that’s not only unique but also extra flavorful. Serve with steamed vegetables or Cauliflower Mash for a filling meal.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray for the baking dish

  • 18 oz thinly sliced chicken breasts (about 8 pieces)

  • 8 oz pork rinds

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp dried basil

  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 oz (3 slices) deli ham, halved divided

  • 2 oz (3 slices) Swiss cheese, halved, divided

  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) butter, divided

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Coat the baking dish with cooking spray.
  • On a flat surface, place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound the chicken until the pieces are all about ¼ inch thick. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, pulse the pork rinds into a find powder. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • To the ground pork rinds, add the Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano, basil, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Mix the coating thoroughly.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs.
  • Set up a “breading” station: Line up the egg wash, then the pork rind mixture, then the prepared baking dish.
  • On a flat surface, lay out each chicken breast. Top each breast with one-half slice of ham and one-half slice of Swiss cheese. Top each with 1 tablespoon of butter. Roll up each breast, finishing seam-side down.
  • Carefully dip one chicken roll into the egg wash, then coat completely with the pork rind mixture, pressing firmly so the “breading” adheres. Place the breaded chicken roll seam-side down into the prepared pan. Repeat the “breading” process with the remaining chicken rolls.
  • Place the pan in the oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown.
