For the Chicken

  • 4 Ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast or thigh
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour, or gluten-free substitute
  • 1 Ounce pork rinds, such as 4505 Chicharrones
  • 1 Whole egg
  • 4 Ounces whole milk
  • 1 1/2 Cup vegetable oil, for pan frying
  • 1 Hamburger bun

For the Slaw

  • 1 Cup green cabbage, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons red onion, sliced thin
  • 2 Tablespoons carrots, sliced into coins
  • 6 Cilantro sprigs
  • 1 Tablespoon pickled jalapenos
  • 3 Tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 Teaspoons sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper

For the White Sauce

  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon coriander


For the Chicken

Use a rolling pin or the side of a wine bottle to roll over and pulverize your pork rinds until they become about the size of a small bean

Pat dry and trim chicken.

Whisk together milk and egg in a shallow bowl or plate.

Season Chicken with salt and dredge in Flour or Substitute, pat excess off

Dip into Egg/Milk mixture, lift out and allow excess egg wash to run off

Pour your crushed chicharrones out onto a plate and place your chicken on top. Press gently in order to adhere the chich to the chicken piece, Continue until all sides are coated.

Preferably use a cast iron skillet. It should be large enough that when the chich-crusted chicken is placed in the oil, the oil comes half way up the sides of the chicken . Cook the chicken on medium heat (approx. 350 Fahrenheit) for 3-4 minutes on each side. Be sure to cook your chicken to an internal temperature of 165 Fahrenheit

Remove chicken from oil and place on a paper towel and season lightly with salt.

For the Slaw

Combine all ingredients, except cilantro and let sit one hour.

For the White Sauce

Combine all the ingredients and chill well before using.
