Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb chicken tenderloins
  • ½ cup pork rind crumbs
  • ¼ cup whey protein isolate, plain
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Marinating the chicken

  • In a bowl, mix together heavy cream and hot sauce. Add chicken and let marinade for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. After marinating, we can start preparing the chicken.

Breading the chicken

  • Preheat oven to 420º F.
  • In a bowl, combine pork rind crumbs, whey protein, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, chili powder, paprika, salt and black pepper. This is our breading mixture.
  • Using a fork, shake off any excess marinade and then drop the chicken directly into the breading mixture. Move it around to coat. I do this one-by-one to ensure each one is covered entirely.
  • Position the chicken in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the chicken until internal temperature hits 165º F and the outside is golden brown. For tenderloins, this is around 15 minutes. For other cuts, your time will likely be longer.
  • Enjoy!
