I might have to try this next time I want some fried chicken.

Flavored Pork Rind Crumbs for Breading

1 - 6 ounce bag of Pork rinds
2 Tbsp Mrs Dash Seasoning Blend (one Tbsp per cup of crumbs)*

Process pork rinds in food processor (or crush with a rolling pin in a zippered bag). If processed, pour into plastic zipper bag.
Add 2 Tbsp Mrs Dash (or your favorite seasoning to taste). Shake bag to distribute seasoning.
One 6-ounce bag makes approx. 2 cups of crumbs.

Note: If you wish to make a large batch, 5 bags of pork rinds, processed, uses one entire bottle of Mrs. Dash (roughly 8 Tbsp).

Use with chicken, fish, shrimp, mozzarella sticks or other items which take to breading. Dip chicken or chop in wither buttermilk or egg wash, then coat with the crumbs. Bake in moderate oven until done. For shrimp, I think I would dip in egg and then roll in crumbs and fry.

Nutritional Information per recipe (2 cups): Calories: 466, Carbohydrates: 4 g, Fiber: 0 g, Net Carbohydrates: 4 g, Protein: 52g, Fat: 27 g*Note: there is fructose in the Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic, but the impact is so minimal that I only allot one carb per Tbsp (or cup of rinds).
