1. Rinse and pat dry your chicken pieces. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl suitable for marinating, mix together the sour cream, vinegar, poultry seasoning, garlic, freshly ground black pepper and season to taste. Add in the chicken, cover with cling film and marinate in the fridge for at least two hours (though preferably overnight!).

3. Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C. Line a rimmed baking tray with parchment paper or a baking mat.

4. You will need three bowls for the three coatings. In bowl 1, place your almond flour (or more crushed pork rinds). In bowl 2, whisk your egg with sour cream. And in bowl 3, mix thoroughly together the crushed pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, freshly ground black pepper, cayenne and season to taste with salt (will vary quite a bit depending on the saltiness of your pork rinds).

5. Dip your chicken pieces one at a time in the almond flour, followed by the egg, followed by the pork rinds mixture. Place in the prepared baking tray.

6. Roast your chicken for 20-15 minutes until fully cooked (i.e. no longer pink and the juices run clear).  Serve right away (though they’re also surprisingly good cold too!).

7. Store in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer for up to three months (they reheat great!).
