These Pork Rind Crusted Chicken Tenders are oven baked and SO crispy & delicious! I’m not a big pork rinds person, but they worked fantastic in this recipe!!! Who would have thought?!?!

The chicken tenders are coated in a mixture of pork rinds and panko bread crumbs. That combination worked great! I baked the tenders on a foil-lined baking sheet and lightly sprayed them with cooking spray. They were delicious! The coating stayed on, and the chicken was perfect!!

We dipped the chicken tenders in my favorite Zippy Pineapple Dip. We had some leftover chicken and chopped them up the next day in a salad for a quick and delicious lunch!

You can coat the chicken and freeze them unbaked for later. Just thaw them in the refrigerator for a few hours before baking.

This is a super easy recipe to convert to gluten-free/low-carb/keto-friendly. Substitute almond flour for the flour and increase the pork rinds by 1/2 cup and omit the bread crumbs. SO easy!
