So, I've tested recipes with almond flour breadcrumbs and coconut flour breadcrumbs and to be honest I am always a little disappointed. I miss the crunch and yummy texture of traditional breadcrumbs. Great news: I FOUND THE ANSWER. Ground up pork rinds! Wooohooo! If you haven't tried this, you must. Here's a recipe for Paleo chicken fingers using the pork rinds to make that perfect crunch I've been missing.

Spicy Pork Rind-Breaded Chicken Fingers

4 chicken breasts
1 bag spicy pork rinds
2 eggs, beaten
olive oil in misto sprayer

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a food processor, grind up the pork rinds and put them on a plate. Place beaten eggs in a bowl.
2. Cut the chicken breasts into strips. Dip the chicken strips in the egg and then cover them in pork rinds. Place them on a foil-lined cookie sheet sprayed with olive oil. Give them space to get crunchy!
3. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake another 10 minutes or until crispy and browned!

Variation: Get the plain pork rinds, add Italian seasonings, and make a chicken dish that imitates the flavors of chicken Parmesan (minus the Parmesan cheese of course!)
Pin It!


  1. OMG!!!! I've been also failing with almond flour. Will try this for sure. Thanks!!!

  2. I've been making chicken strips and nuggets this way since 2000. You can play with the seasonings lots of different ways with the plain pork rinds depending on the flavor you are ooking for. They are good with homemade ranch seasoning too.

  3. Thanks so much for this suggestion-- I tried it and the food just disappears. The pork rind crumbs stick so well to the food and you can just bake in the oven because the fat is already in the pork rinds. I prefer the plain pork rinds and then add my own herbs and spices to vary the taste. -- love, love, love, this suggestion. You're a GENIUS

  4. What brand of pork rinds are you using? I looked up Frito Lay and the ingredients are MSG, artificial color, dextrose (sugar), maltodextrin (sugar)and soybean oil (not organic and a subsidized crop so most probably GMO soybeans).


    1. US Wellness Meats ( now makes Pork Rinds fried in their own lard, w/just salt and pepper. They are absolutely delicious, but expensive, at $5.99 for a 2-ounce bag.

  5. Dang, that looks good. Never thought of pork rinds for breading. : ) Trying this soon!

  6. Excellent!!! I will be making these on a regular basis.

  7. So these are the bags of puffed pork rinds? Not actual raw pork rinds?

  8. good extremely quickly on Android, Linux and Windows running system, kodi for pc process is much less compared to 5 mins long nice.

  9. Don't you think you should start moderating comments to do away with back linking spam sites?

And while you may look at the Coach Outlet Online and think that she has bought it around a month back, because it looks just a little used, chances are that she actually got a used Coach Outlet Online yesterday from a previous owner who actually used the Coach Factory Outlet
