I use this to make gluten-free chicken strips and fish sticks. Cooking time listed is my estimated time for sauting chicken strips or fish sticks. Use the cardboard cheese in a can for this recipe, it holds up better than freshly grated and its cheaper! Save the good stuff for a dish where its flavor and texture will make a dfference.

Directions

  1. Be sure the pork rinds are crushed fine, remove any sizeable bits. You can crush with a rolling pin or in a food processor.
  2. Stir the parmesan cheese into pork rind powder and blend evenly.
  3. Season to taste. The pork rinds and the cheese are both somewhat salty, so go easy on any added salt. I often use dried herbs, garlic powder, cayenne and/or chili powder. Whatever goes well with the food you are coating.
  4. Moisten the food to be coated (use egg, water, milk, etc.) then roll in the pork-cheese mixture. Set aside until all pieces have been coated.
  5. Food can now be cooked as desired. Sauting and baking are the ways I usually use. You can deep fry the foods, but little bits of the coating come off easily and burn in the oil.
