  3. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking tray(rimmed) with parchment paper.
  4. For the three coatings, you will need three bowls. Place your almond flour in bowl 1. Whisk your egg with sour cream in bowl 2. Mix thoroughly together the freshly ground black pepper,
  5. Parmesan cheese, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed pork rinds, cayenne and season to taste with salt in bowl 3(depending on the saltiness of your pork rinds, will vary quite a bit).
  6. One at a time in the almond flour, dip your chicken pieces, followed by the egg, followed by the pork rinds mixture. Place in the (prepared)baking tray.
  7. Until they get fully cooked, bake your chicken nuggets for 20-15 minutes (i.e. juices run clear and the no longer pink). Serve right away (surprisingly good cold too!).
