Pan Lickin' Chicken - THM



My family absolutely loves this chicken, however, there is one problem with it. In their opinion, I NEVER fix enough! We have been eating a version of this for a long time, from a recipe out of a magazine. I HAD to find a way to make it THM healthy and tonight, I did it!!


You start by grinding (or crushing) pork rinds to equal 3/4 cup. Or you can grind the whole bag and save the rest for another time like I did.




Then you grate 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese.


Then you combine the ground pork rinds, the cheese and some of Gwen's Ranch Dressing Mix.


You also need to melt 1/2 cup butter. You dip your chicken in the butter, coat it in the crumb mixture and place on a baking sheet.


Then you bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, it will turn golden brown.


Okay, this is the finished product and I know the picture quality is bad but it is because my family was beyond ready to eat and the camera was in the other room, so I grabbed my phone. I figured a poor picture was better than no picture. 
I cannot even begin to explain how delicious this chicken is. There is never any left and my son and I were fighting over the crumblies in the pan, literally. I'm not joking, it's that good! That is why I named it Pan Lickin' Chicken!

Please let me know if you try this and if your family likes it as much as mine. I really do want to know!

Pan Lickin' Chicken

3/4 cup ground (or crushed) pork rinds
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 Tbsp Gwen's Ranch Dressing Mix
1/2 cup melted butter
enough chicken breasts to feed your family

Mix the pork rinds, cheese and dressing mix in a shallow bowl or plate. Dip your chicken in the melted butter, then coat both sides with the crumb mixture, repeat with all pieces of chicken. Place in a jelly roll pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. 
This usually feeds 6 of us, so if you do more chicken than that, you may have to double your crumb mixture. 
Enjoy!

This is a Trim Healthy Mama S recipe.

  8. I'm glad you liked it. I don't like pork rinds by themselves and yeah, the smell is weird but they do make a great coating!

  9. Do you think skinless chicken would work ok? This looks terrific. Have to put pork rinds on the grocery list. :) I also like that it's baked so there isn't splattering grease!

  10. Yes, I always use boneless skinless chicken breasts. Sorry I wasn't clear on that.
