Keto Breaded Chicken – Important Tips

Chicken – Use boneless skinless chicken breasts and try to cut them in thinner halves so that they can hold more breading and cook better and quicker.

Pork Rinds – As we will try to coat the chicken from the egg mixture it will become soggier, so better divide the crushed pork rinds into 2-3 portions to have nice crushed pork rinds.

Air fryer – You can also make this keto breaded chicken pork rinds in your air fryer, fry for 18-20 minutes or until crispy and perfect.

Spices – Try other spices like ground cumin, smoked paprika, and dried oregano to change the taste.
