Being on a low carb diet, I wasn't sure how many carbs I would use up in battering my chicken strips with flour. Using the same seasonings & a similar technique to fry chicken, I used pork skins to make a wonderful crispy crust.
There are several different flavors of pork skins so use your imagination and change up to your liking. The ones I saw were BBQ, Hot and Spicy, Salt and Vinegar and plain. Can't wait to try to Hot & Spicy and use some south of the border spices.
