Pasta has always been a huge staple in our house and one of our favorites is hands down Chicken Parmigiana Rigatoni. However, since I was diagnosed as diabetic last year, I was no longer able to eat some of my favorite foods. My family, bless their hearts, decided not to eat pasta anymore in order to make me feel better and also get rid of temptation. It did not work and I felt there was no need for all of us to suffer…so I went looking for options that I could enjoy. I soon discovered that I could eat “breaded” chicken, something that is near and dear to me, without any carbs at all. One simple ingredient that I never thought of and ironically could never stand until I discovered how useful it is, pork rinds. Or more specifically, pork rind dust.
