    I was a little worried about the pickle juice marinade but it turned out tender, flavorful and a family favorite!

    Fine, nothing special. Had about 300g of chicken left over when the crumb ran out which was pretty annoying

    Easy and tasty. Made as written, had a little heat, but even my 10 year old ate it. Would make again.

    flavor was good. held off on the cayenne because my kids don't care for the extra spice. could have used more pork rinds, perhaps another 2oz or so. definitely will make again tho and try to make it better.

    Seasoning combo was pretty good, I had the chicken in butter milk over night and tasted great. I will say that I put the chicken in the fridge in a container afterwards and it got very soggy, the crispiness was gone. So I would highly suggest to eat them all in one sitting, even 1 hr in the fridge was disappointing.

    Great taste, texture and just the right amount of spice! I did add extra pork rinds as it didn’t seems to be quite enough

    Works pretty well. I used Vinegar and sea salt flavored pork rinds instead of plain.

    Love the breading! We did bone in fried chicken in the air-fryer. Mmmmm! 330 for 33-35 min and then up it to 400 for 5 min. Perfect and tastes just like Mama’s

    Very good! I used skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs, bumped the spices up by 50 percent, and doubled the cooking time. Came out crispy and moist. Can't think of anything I'd change for next time.

    Came out great, I put some in the air fryer to try there. Under same temperature and time. Came out a little more on the crispy than in the oven. And was a little bit saltier as well. But was great out the air fryer as well

    Delicious! Used tenderloins, one 3oz bag of plain pork rinds and 1 0z hot pork rinds. Left out the cayenne since I used the hot pork rinds and yes this is a keeper! Paired with Garlic Roasted Potatoes.

    i liked it, but my fiance did not, only because you will have a strong pork rind flavor even with the seasoning.

    Everyone loved them! So good. Even my picky son ate them no problem. Normally when I try to make something low carb my kids are like this tastes weird I don't like it, but this time they had no idea. Awesome

    The thyme was a bit overpowering. Will likely make again, but will reduce amount of thyme or try other spices.
