  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Slice chicken breast through the middle horizontally from one side to within 1/2 inch of the other side. Open the two sides and spread them out like an open book. Pound chicken flat until about 1/2-inch thick.
  3. Beat egg and cream together in a bowl.
  4. Combine crushed pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, ground black pepper, and Italian seasoning in bowl; transfer breading to a plate.
  5. Dip chicken into egg mixture; coat completely. Press chicken into breading; thickly coat both sides.
  6. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; add ghee. Place chicken in the pan; cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Be careful to keep breading in place.
  7. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Cover with tomato sauce; top with mozzarella cheese.
  8. Broil until cheese is bubbling and barely browned, about 2 minutes.

Really good & love the pork rinds idea. I used normal butter though not ghee. The only issue I had was the time, it took me much more time than noted to make this dish. I used the right size c...

Delicious. The pork rinds make it nice and crunchy. I used chicken tender size pieces and I would even use chicken nugget sizes and use the Marinara sauce for dipping.

Fantastic!!!! Maybe even better than the regular breaded version. I used tenders instead of full breasts for more crunch in each bite.

I substituted the pork rinds with almond flour and the ghee with olive oil. so yummy

Absolutely delicious! Our entire family enjoyed this meal - including our extremely picky 8 year old. We doubled the recipe and since the kiddos were eating, we omitted the red pepper flakes. ...

Amazing!! I hate pork rinds & doubted that this would work. I was truly amazed that it turned out so well!!

I used a third less of the red pepper flake than it called for. Even with less, it was spicy.
