How to Make White Trash Potato Chip Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all ingredients for "Dredge # 1" and place in a loaf pan or pie tin.
  2. Beat the egg into the buttermilk in a small mixing bowl. This is "Dredge # 2"
  3. For "Dredge # 3", thoroughly crush potato chips [in the bag] to about the size of rolled oats. "Shake" in the cornstarch, paprika, salt and pepper. Place in loaf pan or pie tin.
  4. Heat peanut oil to about 325 degrees in a cast iron skillet [about 3/4" deep].
  5. Pat chicken pieces dry with a paper towel. Dredge each piece thoroughly in "Dredge # 1"; shake of excess. Place in "Dredge # 2" and let mixture drip off. Then, completely cover with "Dredge # 3", gently pressing the chip coating into the chicken skin.
  6. Drop chicken in the hot oil and fry for about 8 minutes on the first side and about 6 on the second [you'll know when it's about done--- it'll be deep and golden!].
  7. Let drain on Wonderbread® White Bread toast [you'll thank me later!!] for about 7 minutes. Then . . . you know--- enjoy!
