Pork sounds delicious but I’d like to try it with chicken.
It’s equally as yummy with chicken, I’ve made this both ways and the topping is just so delicious with whichever protein you use.

I love crispy bacon and especially crispy candied bacon. It’s a treat my family loves.
Sounds like such a treat!

We don’t eat much pork, but this looks like a good way to make the chicken breasts that my daughter loves. The chickpea recipe that Mary W mentions above sounds delicious too. Is that one of yours?
This is super good with chicken too! The chickpea recipe is not mine, but one I make all the time are these crispy chickpea shawarma https://sweetphi.com/crispy-chickpea-shawarma-pita-recipe/

A family favorite crispy recipe is Crispy Curry-Roasted Chickpeas. Easy to make. Super tasty and versatile. Easy to change the flavor profile. I keep ingredients on hand so I can easily whip up a batch!
Those sound so good. I usually make chickpea shawarma – they’re so good in pitas!
