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.

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. 😋

    Thank you Lina! I bought some chicken tenders from Sprouts earlier this week and was looking for keto friendly recipes to use them. This is awesome!

    • Lina D

      Awesome! I think you’ll enjoy these!

    I do just egg(or Mayo) and then grated parmesan cheese(with garlic, salt, and pepper added)….I usually pan fry them in butter or bacon grease.
    Amazing! Great for broccoli Alfredo too! Yum!

  3. laceypearl

    I use a food processor on the pork rhinds much simpler!

  4. Blueyedturtlelover

    Is it strange that I HATE pork rinds?! I’ve tried different brands and different flavors and they are all gross and disgusting!! I just use almond flour and parmesan cheese instead.

    • Lina D

      No it’s personal preference and yes almond flour is great too!

  5. buckeyegoddess

    Not everybody can eat pork rinds (pork fights its way out of my body in a violent way) and lots of people just hate them. Is there a non-pork version?

    Would you know what the total number carbs and calories are in these?
