  • 1 lb thin sliced chicken breasts, cut into bun sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup pork rinds, crushed
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated


  1. 380°F for 10 minutes then 400°F for 5. Made 12 small pieces.

  2. Cut the thin chicken breasts into pieces that would be good for your mini sandwiches. I got 12 pieces in 1 lb of chicken and made 8 sandwiches.

  3. Take the raw chicken and add to a baggie with the mayo. Squish the chicken around the bag to make sure it's well covered in mayo.

  4. In a separate bowl, add the pork rinds and parmesan cheese. Mix well.

  5. Place the mayo covered chicken into the bread crumb mixture and coate on both sides.

  6. Spray the basket of the air fryer and place in the breaded chicken. Bake at 380°F for 10 minutes then increase to 400°F for 5 more until as crispy as you like.

  7. To make on the stove, heat some oil in a large skillet. Brown the chicken pieces on both sides. MIght take about 5-10 minutes. If chicken is very thick, then cook in oven (350°F for 10 minutes.)

  8. Assemble the sandwich with 2 romain lettuce leaves for the bun, some pickled onions and ranch deressing. Enjoy!
