- 2 chicken breast
- large bag Pork Rinds (3 ounces)
- 1 to 3 cups milk
- 3 eggs
- Cajun Seasoning of choice
- canola or vegetable oil
In a bowl scramble eggs, add the milk and" lots" of Cajun seasonings mix until all blended. "Lots" in this instance means according to taste
Place the egg and milk mixture in a gallon Ziploc bag. Set aside.
Remove fat from chicken breast and cut into nugget size pieces.
Season nuggets with Cajun seasoning on all sides. Add cayenne red pepper and paprika for a flavor kick
Put nuggets in egg and milk mixture, make sure mixture covers the nuggets, add milk if needed. Let sit for at least 10 minutes in the Ziploc bag.
In a food processor grind the pork rinds - the consistency will be not as fine as flour but finer than corn meal
Put pork rinds in a gallon Ziploc bag and again add lots of Cajun seasoning and shake up the bag. Spicy pork rinds could also be used.
Transfer nuggets to pork rinds zip lock bag removing any excess egg/milk mixture. Shake the bag and press nuggets from outside of the bag to make pork rinds stick more. Rest for at least 10 minutes.
Add enough oil in pan to cover nuggets. Heat oil until a pinch of flour dropped in oil sizzles. Try to keep the temp as low as you can for oil.
Once cooking, stir only when you are sure the coating is sticking.
Fry until golden brown and nuggets are floating
Remove to paper towels.
Or bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes
