Who said you can't eat your favorite dishes while trying to live a healthier life? Back up Colonel Sanders, this meal may redefine how families prepare fried chicken!
16 ounces chicken thighs, cut in half 1 cup crushed pork rinds 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 1 large egg 1 teaspoon pepper 1 tsp salt (optional or to taste) 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon coconut oil
1. Crush up your pork rinds in a Ziploc bag or in a blender. Use whatever pork rinds you have in hand or can find in the store. 2. In a bowl, put your pork rind crumbs, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. 3. In another bowl, crack an egg and whisk it well. 4. Mix the pork rind ingredients up to make sure it will coat the chicken evenly. 5. Dip your chicken into the egg mixture, then dip it into the pork rind crumb mixture. We’re doing a double dip to ensure there will be a nice crust. Dip it in the egg mixture again, and again into the pork rinds. 6. In a pan, put your olive oil and coconut oil. Turn to medium high heat and let it get hot. 7. Once the oil is hot, place your chicken inside. Let it sit here a while, almost until you smell burning. We want to make sure the crust gets nice and crisp. 8. Once you smell that burning, flip it over and do the same to the other side. Once you smell burning again, you can flip it over a second time. 9. Turn your heat down to the lowest setting, and let your chicken cook for about 6-7 minutes per side (depending on thickness of the chicken breast). 10. Let your chicken cook until it’s just about done. I like to keep my chicken nice and moist inside, JUST over the pink side in the center – but this is completely up to your own preferences.
