Quick 'n Crunchy Potato Chip Chicken

"Use your favorite flavor of potato chips, such as Cheddar or barbecue, to coat the chicken in this recipe. You can even use the crumbs in the bottom of the bag! A quick crushing tip: Place potato chips in a tightly sealed plastic bag, and crush with rolling pin. Source: Betty Crocker"

    Good and easy. I used ruffles since I don't like flavored chips.

    Quick, easy, tasty. I used BBQ chips. I will try sour cream and onion and baking next time.

    I'll certainly bake these in the oven when time permits - like at weekends - but for a really quick mid-week meal, these were just SO easy to make. I scaled the recipe down for two, and used only about 1/2 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce (personal taste preference). Having used unflavoured potato chips (the flavours always taste very synthetic to me), I followed the suggestion of other reviewers and added some garlic powder, some paprika and several grindings of black pepper. And because there was plenty of room in the pan, I sauteed some sliced onion and sliced mushrooms in the last 10 minutes of cooking. We greatly enjoyed this dish: thanks for sharing it.

    This was very quick and easy; I am very happy to have found the recipe. I will say, though, that I used plain potato chips and don't recommend doing so unless you add black pepper, or perhaps garlic or onion powder. I also baked them at 400, then put them under the broiler for a few minutes at the end of baking. Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices 2008.

    This is a great way to fix chicken breasts! I used regular chips with just a bit of salt & vinegar chips. Wonderful! As Syd said, the possibilities are endless. Thnx for posting, Lainey!
