Pork Rind Chicken

While pork rinds have a bad reputation as junk food, they are healthier than expected. They are high in protein and a good source of vitamins B12 and B6, niacin, iron and zinc. They contain only 70 calories per serving and are relatively low in cholesterol. Turn them into a seasoning for chicken strips and you have the makings of a tasty snack that has more health benefits than potato chips, nachos or baked goods.


  • 2 chicken breasts cut into strips.
  • 1 bag of plain pork rinds; can use spicy or BBQ as well.
  • 2 eggs, scrambled with a splash of water.
  • You can add different seasonings if you want. Since the pork rinds are already salty, you don’t need to add salt.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put pork rinds into food processor and process until they look like bread crumbs. Add seasonings and pulse. Place in bowl and set aside.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into strips. Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix with a splash of water.
  3. Dip the chicken into the eggs, then coat the chicken with the pork rinds and place on the baking sheet. Repeat.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes. Turn the chicken and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
