What Are The Best Pork Rinds To Use For Chicken Parmesan 

We used the plain pork rinds I found in our store. Be sure not to get flavored pork rinds as that will add that specific flavor to your recipe, changing it. Any brand of original will work.  Trust me pork rinds work great and you won't even miss the bread crumbs. This keto recipe is a winner. Grab that baking dish and get to cooking.

Will This Recipe Double or Triple 

Absolutely, Yes. Because the chicken breasts vary in size, you might have to batch cook depending on the size of your skillet. But you can very easily double or even triple the recipe to feed however large you need to cook.
