Ingredients:

  • 6 chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt 
  • 2 large eggs  0.8 net carbs
  • ½ cup heavy cream  3.3 net carbs
  • ¾ cup almond flour  9 net carbs
  • 1 ½ cups finely crushed pork rinds
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan  2 net carbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder  2 net carbs
  • ½ teaspoon Paprika  0.2 net carbs
  • Salt and black pepper

 

Preheat the oven and place parchment paper over whatever you will use to hold the chicken. Wash chicken then pat dry and season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, pork rinds, parmesan, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Break the eggs in a separate plate. Dip each chicken in the egg, then the dry mixture, and place on the baking sheet. When you’ve coated all the chicken, bake until it looks golden, around 30-45 minutes. Cut open one of the pieces to be sure they’re ready before eating. 

Tip:  you can make spicy mayo with mayo and hot sauce. This can be used as your dipping sauce!

You may fry the chicken instead of baking it.
