Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine pork rinds, parsley, garlic powder, and paprika in a resealable plastic bag. Mix well and set aside.

  • Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.

  • Mix egg and cream together in a bowl to make a wash.

  • Dip 1 piece of chicken into the wash and then drop into the bag of pork rinds. Shake to coat completely and transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken. Put coated chicken into the hot oil in the skillet and cook until crispy and no longer pink inside, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Remove skillet from heat and top each piece of chicken with 1/3 cup tomato sauce. Add 4 slices of pepperoni to each chicken and cover with mozzarella cheese.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Broil chicken in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and slightly browned, about 5 minutes.
