Fried Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:
5-1/2 oz pork rinds
6 bone-in chicken thighs with skin, about 2 lb. (908 g)
6 bone-in chicken legs with skin, about 1.75 lb. (680 g)
1 large egg
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C).

Place a wire cooling rack in a large rimmed baking sheet.

In a food processor, grind the pork rinds, some larger pieces are desirable. Spread on a large plate.

Remove the skin from the chicken pieces.

In a shallow bowl, mix the egg, mayonnaise, mustard, thyme, salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder.

Dip each piece of chicken in the mayonnaise mixture to coat thoroughly and then roll in the pork rinds to cover completely.

Place the chicken on the wire rack, making sure there is enough room around each piece for the chicken to roast evenly and crisply.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until the juice runs clear when the thickest part of the thigh is pricked with a knife.

Crock Pot Chick Cacciatore Recipe

Ingredients:
3 lbs skinless chicken thighs
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
8 oz brown crimini or portobello mushrooms, roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
2/3 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning mixture, or 1 teaspoon each oregano, basil, and thyme
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 inch of Parmesan cheese rind

Instructions:

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Put in crock pot set to high, and cover. You can also brown the chicken before or after removing the skin, and then pour off most of the fat before cooking the vegetables.

Cook the onion and green pepper in a large skillet with a small amount of oil on high heat. After 2 to 3 minutes, add the mushrooms. Two minutes later, add the garlic. Cook for another minute.

Add the wine, herbs, and more salt and pepper. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes, until liquid is almost completely boiled away. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary. If it tastes harsh or acidic, add just a touch of Stevia sweetener.

Add the tomato paste and Parmesan cheese rind, and stir to combine.

Spoon ingredients onto the top of the chicken, and cook for 3 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low. About half an hour before you are ready to eat, check and adjust seasonings one more time.

Chicken Goulash with Paprika Recipe

Ingredients:
1 whole chicken (about 3 1/2 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoon sour cream

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Mix butter with garlic. Use fingertips to spread mixture the breasts and thighs.

In a small roasting pan, stir onions with paprika, salt, and 1/4 cup of water.

Arrange chicken pieces in the pan. Cook chicken for about 10 minutes on 450°F, then lower the heat to 375°F and continue to cook an additional 30 minutes. Chicken is done when the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 175°F (use a meat thermometer), and the juices run clear when the thickest part of thigh is pierced with a knife.

Note that breasts cook faster than thighs, check those first, and let the thighs cook a few minutes longer.

Remove chicken pieces to a platter and let sit for 10 minutes.

Skim and discard fat from onion mixture in the pan. Add chicken broth to the onions. Placing the roasting pan on a stove top burner, bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring to loosen the browned bits. Stir in sour cream. Serve chicken with onions spooned over it.

Carb Count: 8 carbs per serving. Serves 4.
