Take the entire bag of Southern Recipe Small Batch Cilantro Lime Pork Rinds and crush them. I put them in a plastic bag and got out a little frustration smashing them to bits. You can also use a blender to crush them up. Heat the oven to 400°.

Place two tablespoons of butter in a 13 X 9 inch glass dish and melt in the oven. Once melted remove to place the chicken in the dish.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides to season the chicken.

Next dip the chicken in the egg then let it sit in the crushed pork rinds to completely covered on each side. This is what gives it the flavor. I even sprinkled a little more of the left over crushed pork rinds on top.

Place the chicken in the dish as it is coated. Bake for 15 min then flip and back for 15 minutes on the other side.

Then remove and serve with your favorite pork rinds!

Can you eat fried chicken on low carb diet?

You can eat this fried chicken on a low carb diet, since you are substituting pork rinds for the flour batter coating. This is great, since you can make a large batch and there is always enough for leftovers.  They were even better the next day. I like being able to cook a large batch, so we can have two meals with one dish. Our secret is to warm up the chicken on medium low heat in a cast iron skillet the next day. This way the fried chicken stays crunchy.  After warming up the chicken cut it and use it in salads, tacos or make chicken Parmesan the next day.
