Crunchy Keto Chicken Tenders (Low Carb Kid-Approved Meal Idea)
Does your family love chicken tenders?🙋
If you’re eating a low carb or a Keto lifestyle, dishing up easy meals that will appeal to the entire family can be a struggle. Here’s a recipe for delicious CRUNCHY chicken tenders that uses an unexpected zero carb main ingredient for breading – PORK RINDS! 😮
Yes, I know… it may seem a little odd. But let me tell you, these had an excellent flavor and texture!
Just dip chicken tenders in the egg wash, coat in the breading, and bake for a yummy and kid-approved meal idea! You could definitely season however you’d like, and even fry them on the stove if desired. YUM!
Note: I used a mix of both the spicy and regular variety of pork rinds for extra flavor, and they were not too spicy for the kids.
Tip: When baking crispy chicken tenders, I always stack a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper of foil for easy clean up. This will help air circulate underneath for crispier results.

Crushed pork rinds are the secret ingredient that makes these oven baked Keto Chicken Tenders crunchy and delicious!
Oh my goodness… SO GOOOD!
These chicken tenders were gone in minutes, and no one even asked what the ‘breading” was! I liked that they are super easy to make with few ingredients.
If pork rinds aren’t your thing, maybe consider using almond flour instead, like in these Grain-Free Almond Flour Chicken Tenders. They are similar, but don’t have that same crispy texture. 😋
