Ingredients

  • 4-6

    cups trans-fat free frying oil

  • 1

    large bag (4 ounces) regular pork rinds

  • 1

    ⁄2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1

    ⁄4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1

    ⁄8 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 11

    ⁄2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1 inch cubes

  • 2

    large eggs, beaten in a bowl

  • 1

    ⁄4 cup Louisiana hot sauce

  • 1

    ⁄4 cup butter, melted

Directions

1. Place a pot over medium-high heat and fill with at least 2 inches of vegetable oil. Heat oil 3-4 minutes, until about 350 degrees. (or preheat an electric deep fryer) 2. Add the pork rinds, Italian seasoning, pepper, and garlic powder to a large food storage bag and use a heavy can or similar to crush the rinds until smooth. 3. Dip chicken cubes into the beaten eggs and then place into the bag of seasoned pork rinds, shaking to coat. 4. Fry the coated chicken pieces in small batches of 5 or 6 for about 3 minutes each batch, or until a deep golden brown. Let rest on paper towels to drain excess oil. 5. In a medium bowl, combine hot sauce and melted butter to make the sauce. Toss fried and drained chicken in the sauce before serving hot. Serve garnished with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing, if desired. George’s Tips | You can lower the fat by baking them instead of frying. Simply place the coated chicken pieces on a greased sheet pan and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until cutting into one reveals no pink. Variation | These are also good without a sauce at all, but if hot wing sauce isn’t your thing, try topping with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese and then broiling for just 1 minute to melt the cheese and you will have Chicken Parmesan Bites!
