Potato Chip Chicken – my version of fast food. :)

Do you have picky eaters in your house?  I certainly do!  This is one recipe that all of my kiddos will eat, and my husband likes them too.  🙂

One of my favorite parts of this recipe is that I can use the left over potato chip crumbs that nobody wants to eat, yet no one will throw away.  This makes perfect use of those leftovers!!

Here is what you will need:

12 chicken tenders

1/2 tsp season salt

1 bag of potato chip crumbs (sometimes I will combine bags or add some fresh chips so I will have enough to coat the chicken).


First step is to crush up those potato chip crumbs with a rolling pin


Next, cut up the chicken into nugget sized pieces


Add the season salt right to the potato chip bag with the potato chip crumbs.  Shake up to mix well.  Now add the chicken pieces and shake the bag to coat the chicken.

Empty your bag out onto a cookie sheet and spread around so the pieces are not touching


Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes, then turn pieces over.  Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes and check to be sure they are fully cooked by cutting one open.

That is all!  So easy and much better for all of us than fast food!
