Pork Rind Parmesan-Encrusted Nuggets

  INGREDIENTS: 

  • 1 large, raw chicken breast, cut into ½ cubes

  • 1 cup ground/crushed pork rinds (we used an all-natural salt and pepper flavored, see picture)

  • ½ cup finely grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 whole egg, scrambled

  • 1 tablespoon deli mustard (check to make sure it is sugar-free)

   DIRECTIONS: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Combine finely crushed pork rinds and parmesan cheese in a bowl and mix to evenly combine. Scramble the egg with the mustard in a separate bowl.

  3. Grease a baking sheet with olive oil (we use spray olive oil to evenly coat).

  4. Dip each raw chicken nugget in the mustard/egg mixture and transfer to pork rinds to bread. Gently toss in the dry mixture to evenly coat the chicken. Repeat for each chicken nugget and place of the baking sheet at least ½ inch from the other. Spray the tops of the nuggets with olive oil and place in oven.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes. At the 10-15 minute marker, remove tray from oven and flip nuggets over to evenly brown on both sides.

  6. Enjoy with ranch or a condiment of your choice (we chose guacamole)!
