Paleo “breading”…shhhh it’s pork rinds!!!

I had to revisit this again because it’s easy and phenomenal. It will also fool any child or non-paleo folks. I use this breading for SO many recipes: Chicken Tenders, Prosciutto Wrapped Tomatoes, Crispy Pork Cutlets,  Chicken Roulade, Creamy Chicken Bake, Eggplant Parmesan, Fish Nuggets, Baked Breaded Chicken, Pork Schnitzel, Lemon Basil Chicken Tenders, and Paleo Meatloaf/Meatballs . So many great options!


Ok, so I discovered a REALLY good cheat! I bought some pork rinds (ingredients are only pork and salt) and created Italian style breading.  My son and husband loved this as breading, and I also used them in my meatballs to replace seasoned breadcrumbs.


  • 6 cups pork rinds (chicharrones with only ingredients being pork and salt)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Pulse all ingredients in the food processor until they reach the desired consistency.  Use as breading or binder, and all kinds of recipes to make them “paleo”!
