Ingredients

    Pork Rind Breaded Fried Chicken:

    • 1 cup Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds, crushed
    • 3 lbs whole chicken, cut into pieces
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1 tsp. pepper
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 2 cups self-rising flour

Preparation

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken in a shallow dish or zip-top plastic bag, and add buttermilk. Cover or seal, and chill at least 2 hours.

Grind pork rinds in food processor, then combine with flour.

Remove chicken from buttermilk, discarding the buttermilk. Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a deep skillet or Dutch oven; heat to 360°. Dredge chicken in pork rind/flour mixture. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, to the skillet or Dutch oven.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook chicken until lightly browned on both sides, turning frequently. Drain on paper towel.
