Chicken fat and snacks

If anyone out there knows the English name for these, help me out please! When you render lard out of fatty tissue, and you fry these pieces of mostly meatless bacon, you get these small brown pieces of tasty snacks after the lard is pressed out. What are these called?

fatty tissue from chicken
1 tbsp vegetable oil

Chop up the fatty tissue and add to a skillet preheated to medium-high with a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Cook until all the fat was released from the tissue and the remaining cell walls and protein form crispy, small, brown pieces.

Drain the fat from the pieces and collect the fat into a jar. Cool the jar and store in the fridge, for using in dishes such as pastrmajlija. Salt the brown pieces and eat with bread and your choice of veggies.
