Crispy, crunchy and quick Fried Chicken. Thighs with skins are my favorite, and I just love fried chicken skin. I think you’ll like this one too. From start to finish, it was about 45 minutes and it was delicious. KETO or not, your family will love this Fried Chicken.


  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 2 oz traditional flavor pork rinds
  • 1/2 teas onion powder
  • 1/2 teas garlic powder
  • 1 teas paprika
  • 1 teas Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Ingredients 2

The Egg Wash

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/8 cup water


Coating for the chicken

  1. Dump approximately 1/2 of a 3.5 oz bag of Pork Rinds into a Ziploc bag.
  2. Pound them into crumbs with your meat hammer, or a wooden spoon (or a rubber mallet).
  3. Add seasonings to bag.
  4. Shake well to combine.

Cooking the Chicken

  1. Place large skillet on stove and add enough bacon grease to give about 1/4 of an inch depth of grease.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a rather generous sized bowl
  3. Add Cream and water and mix throughly.
  4. Dip Chicken pieces into the wash and turn over a few times.
  5. Immediately take the wet chicken piece and put into the baggie. ( I usually do two at a time)
  6. You want a little air in the bag when you shake it so don’t squeeze it tight.
  7. Shake until the chicken is well coated and remove from bag and place on plate or directly into your skillet.
  8. Turn your heat to medium low, and allow the chicken to brown before flipping the thighs the first time.
  9. Continue to cook on medium low.  Cooking about 5 minutes on each side, we continued cooking until meat thermometer read 165 degrees.  Be careful not to stick the thermometer into the bone when checking, that will mess up your temperature.

Some don’t want the extra cheese, and that is OK!  We also tested this without the Parmesan Cheese and it was delicious as well.
