Poultry Essentials: Potato Chip Breaded Chicken

Andy Anderson !


I got six thumbs up on this spur-of-the-moment recipe from my lockdown guests.

Went into the walk-in, found some frozen chicken breasts, and made these with stuff I had lying about.

This is another recipe that gets put on the lockdown rotation.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Poultry Essentials: Potato Chip Breaded Chicken


  2. My favorite potato chips are an organic sea salt variety; however, cherry-pick the chips with the flavor you enjoy the most.
  3. I like what organic Greek yogurt does for this recipe; however, if you are missing that particular ingredient, or you just do not like yogurt, substitute some sour cream with a dash of lemon juice.

    And, although I have never tried it, you might give mayonnaise a shot.
  4. The measurement on chips is not exact, so do not over think about how many whole chips equals one cup; just make sure that you have enough to coat the chicken.

    And, do not grind them to a powder; leave them a bit chunky.
  5. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  6. Cut the chicken breast in half latterly.
  7. Combine the yogurt, or sour cream, onion powder, and lemon pepper spice. Then toss in a bit of salt and pepper to taste.

    Add the chicken, coat with the mixture, and place in the fridge for two-to-three hours, or up to eight.
  8. I usually stick it all into a Ziploc bag (as pictured), but a bowl will work just fine.
  9. Just before you remove the chicken from the fridge, grind up the potato chips, and season with a bit of salt and pepper.
  10. Place a rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
  11. Remove the chicken from the marinade, coat with the crushed chips, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, fitted with a wire rack.
  12. Place in the preheated oven, and bake until the chicken is golden brown, and an instant-read thermometer reads 160f (71c), about 25 – 20 minutes.
  14. Serve while nice and warm with your favorite sides. Enjoy.
  15. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
