    One piece is over 400 calories? Something is not write. I love this app but I also hate it for the one reason that recipes just don't seem to correlate with late with the calories or carbs ect....

        A Hit! It took almost the whole egg. I doubled the cayenne. It turned out perfect and delicious.

            Instead of oven baked I pan fried it and it came out just as crispy as oven baked! I love this recipe because it tastes almost like the Panko bread crumb chicken we used to make only without the carbs!

                  On reflection I think I should have ground down the rind much finer so I didn’t use so much. My fam found it too fatty and salty and we had to add sour cream to tone down. Will try again!

                      Can I cook these on a non stick baking sheet if I don't have parchment paper?

                        Can I use mayo to coat the chicken breast instead of egg? I need more fat without the protein.

                          I am making this tonight and am using mayonnaise instead of egg. Thank you for the suggestion.

                          I use Mayo instead of egg and it works just as well.

                          Cook the breasts in the air fryer for 5-7 minutes at 400 degrees, then flip the breasts over and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.

                        This is fantastic. I pan fried it in ghee to make more of a schnitzel. Thoroughly enjoyed even by my 5 yo and 2 yo.

                          By far my FAVORITE chicken recipe!!! And you can always make different versions of this with different meat and or/spices. SO WORTH THE EFFORT

                              Yes for sure, I did this and it was super tender.

                            Good flavor but only top crisped up. When I turned the chicken the bottom side did not crisp up. Still very good though!

                              Paired this with a keto mason jar layered cheese salad minus the egg. Was so good. Will definitely make it again.

                                  I love it! But any tips on how to avoid it sticking to the parchment paper? I tried oiling it and flipping more often but still it is really hard to turn over without ripping the meat apart and the “breading” off.

                                    If your breading is sticking to the parchment you may have too much egg on your chicken or haven't baked for long enough.

                                    Bake it on a rack on top of the baking pan and spray the rack with approve oil.
