Beer-Batter Fried Pickle Chips
photo by Greeny4444
- Ready In:
- 1 (32 ounce) jar dill pickles, whole or (24 ounce) jar dill pickles, sliced
- canola oil (for frying)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
- 1 cup beer (I usually use Shiner Bock)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- If not pre-cut, cut pickles in 1/2-1/4 inch slices. Blot pickles with paper towels to remove excess moisture (I cut mine and immediately place them on folded-up paper towels, and then I blot them also).
- Whisk 3/4 cup flour with the beer. Place remaining flour, salt, and pepper in a gallon-size Ziploc bag; shake to combine.
- Pour canola oil in a deep skillet or Dutch oven, and set it over medium heat; the oil should be approximately 3/4 inch deep.
- When your oil is hot (test it by sprinkling a little water in the oil, when it pops, you know it's ready), start preparing the pickle chips.
- Put all the pickle slices in the Ziploc bag with the flour to completely coat the pickles with flour. Take them out, and dip them in beer batter.
- Immediately place batter-covered pickles in the oil (about 10-15 at a time, making sure not to crowd them), careful that it may pop back, for about 2 minutes on each side or until brown.
- When they're golden, remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
- Eat plain, serve with Ranch dressing, or serve with any dipping sauce of your choice.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am an active lady, and I am not the top chef in the world, but I can hold my own. I love making things that remind me of when I was little, I love trying out new recipes, and I love learning new things to cook. Most of the recipes I post are recipes I loved that I found online, but that I have tweaked just a bit. I do have some family recipes on here too. I love to bake, probably more than anything else in the kitchen. I love to bike ride. I like to read, travel, kayak (I've only been twice, but I loved it), hike, camp, basically any outdoorsy/active stuff.?
