INGREDIENTS

  • 19 oz Chicken Thighs - Boneless, Skinless (15% chicken broth, sea salt, natural flavorings)
  • 1/3 cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/3 cup Kroger Riced Cauliflower, frozen (85g per 3/4 cup)
  • 3/8 cup Green Chili Peppers, canned
  • 1 each Egg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper, ground
  • 85 1/24 gram(s) pork rinds, Mac's Salt & Pepper Pork Skins 1/2 oz

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°.
  2. Dice chicken. In a large bowl combine chicken, cheese, cauliflower rice, green chili, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined and coated.
  3. In a medium bowl, crush the pork rinds into a sand like texture. Measure out about 1/8 cup of the chicken mixture and use your hands to form into a loose ball. Gently roll in the crushed pork rinds to coat. Repeat until all chicken mixture is used, making about 20 tots for 4 servings of the recipe.
  4. Cook in the air fryer, in batches if needed, for 8 minutes, or to an internal temperature of 165°. Serve with a dipping sauce if desired. One serving is four tots.

Cooking Tip

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
