I've been making Potato Chip Chicken for my family for years! But for extra flavor and moistness, instead of coating the chicken with melted butter, I rub the chicken with Miracle Whip before coating in the potato chip crumbs. Tip for making potato chip crumbs: Leave the potato chips in the original bag they come in, just snip a very small portion off of one corner at the top to release the air before rolling. The original bag holds up much better during rolling, and the chips cannot escape from it! Also, for an EXTRA-SPECIAL dish that my family loves on special occasions, I drizzle a tiny amount of honey over the chicken just before serving. The salty/sweet combination is Really Yummy!!!
Just okay, probably will not make again.
I have been making this for almost 20 years, but I use boneless skinless chicken breasts that I dip in butter (I do not marinate) and crushed regular potato chips that I also add pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to. The leftover butter I pour over and bake for 45 minutes uncovered at 350. It is delicious, moist, and sometimes I make country gravy and pour over it and serve with mashed potatoes.
I didn't marinate it. I thought that was a bit ridiculous. However, I cut my chicken breasts into thin strips and dipped it into milk instead of melted butter. Last time, I dipped anything into melted butter, it burned. I also used Sour Cream & Onion potato chips which gave it a lot of yummy flavor. Overall, it was good.
I really enjoyed this recipe! I used peppercorn ranch (old dutch) potato chips - takes more than one cup though. They were so moist on the inside and crispy on the oustside. I did not bother to marinate and I added garlic and parmessan to the butter to make it extra tasty. It only took 30min in my oven and I will definitely make this again!!!!!!!
My sister used to make this for us when we were in high school. Used regular flavored chips, dipped in melted butter just prior to rolling in chips and baking...not over night. 45 mins too long... chicken will be dry.
Deliciously crunchy! This is an excellent oven-fried chicken recipe. I did not marinate it in the butter, though, just rolled chicken in the butter and then rolled in the chip-crumbs. I used plain chips, but will try this with other flavors for variety.
UPDATE: I like this with plain chips, but it is especially good with BBQ chips. I thought I would like Sour Cream 'n' Onion, but am sorry to report that it didn't add any particular flavor. (In fact the SCO flavor got "lost".)
Great recipe for an amateur cook like myself...chicken turned out dry because I didn't tenderize it - OOPS! I used Fun Yuns as the potato chip and it turned out very tasty.
