  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts *see note 5
  • 100 g pork rinds *see note 4
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup water


Equipment Needed

  • 1 x Baking Sheet and Non Stick Baking Mat or Parchment Paper
  • Rolling Pin OR Food processor
  • 2 x Medium Bowl
  • Digital Meat Thermometer


  • Heat oven to 400° and line the baking sheet with a non stick baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Crush the pork rinds into a fine crumb using a rolling pin or food processor.
  • In a medium bowl combine the crushed pork rinds with parmesan, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and mix well. Set aside.
  • Whisk the egg with water in a bowl or soup plate and set aside.
  • Slice the chicken breasts in half, horizontally, so that you get 6 chicken cutlets.
  • With one hand, dip a chicken cutlet into the egg mixture and toss into the pork rinds without touching them with your eggy hand. Using your other hand, toss the chicken around in the pork rinds, then place onto the baking sheet.
  • Repeat for all 6 pieces of chicken.
  • Go back and double dip the chicken into the egg mixture and pork rinds until everything has been used up.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 180° *see note 7.


  1. Suggested buns: Low Carb Onion Buns or 90 Second Keto Bread.
  2. Suggested sauces: Keto Honey Mustard, Chipotle Mayo, Low Carb BBQ Sauce or Low Carb Ranch Dressing.
  3. Try one of these toppings: Bacon, avocado, tomato, pickles, lettuce or cheese.
  4. Buy pork rinds in 100g bags such as the Old Dutch brand. This makes it easy to fly at the bag with a rolling pin so that those pork rinds are nice and crumbly (or use a food processor to break them down into fine crumbs easily).
  5. It’s easy to debone your own chicken breasts – I rarely buy boneless because they are so much more expensive! If you have never deboned chicken breast before, you may find this tutorial helpful.
  6. Don't mix up your hands while breading the chicken, or you'll end up wasting a lot of the breading.
  7. Use a digital meat thermometer! You want to make sure the internal temperature of each chicken burger reaches 180°. Uncooked chicken can contain salmonella – not a fun food poisoning, that’s for sure!
