Crispy Potato Chip Chicken

I love chicken strips and I have tried various homemade versions over the years. This recipe today is one of my favorites.

The potato chips give it a nice taste and crunch that I really enjoyed. Yes, I know this is not the healthiest of chicken dishes, but it is a nice treat and you really only need to eat one or two chicken strips, so you are not really eating that many potato chips.

One of the things that I really liked about this recipe was the wet mixture that you dip the chicken in. It had dijon mustard in it and it gives it a nice unique taste. I think you could easily use this in other breaded chicken recipes.

The other thing I liked about this recipe is that this is a nice gluten free coating for chicken. It is the same idea as breading, but you are not using bread or crumbs to make it.

  1. This looks like a very yummy treat, I look forward to trying it. I had never stopped before and thought how to make honey mustard dipping sauce, despite missing it, now I no longer live in the USA. Thanks for sharing your simple recipe for this as well.

  2. I can just imagine the wonderful crunch upon biting into this chicken. I think it would be kind of neat to experiment using different flavored potato chips too, especially the spicy ones.

  3. This looks really good- I bet my kids would eat it right up! I think I can get my four year old to eat anything if I promise chips will be involved. Thanks for sharing, this looks like it will be a winner!

  4. This sounds delicious and worth the extra fat!

  5. chicken fingers are my favorite but i’ve never made a homemade version. i’ll try yours!

  6. This looks really good and easy (though messy) and I can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I think I may try this one with BBQ chips and see how it taste. This looks like a great recipe!

  8. These look great. I’m worried about the mustard, though. I don’t like mustard and am wondering if the chicken tastes like mustard or not. Maybe I can just leave it out?

    • @Chris, Yes this does taste like mustard, but the mustard mixture is not only adding flavor it is giving the coating something to stick to. I would try dipping it in maybe a milk and egg mixture, then dip in the coating. That might work okay. I would love to hear if you try it without the mustard and how it turns out.

  9. i tried it with lay’s bbq chips… unfortunately it seemed like the oils in the chips seemed to become more prominent as they baked on the chicken. i wasn’t so much worried about the calories or healthy alternative but i wasn’t entirely thrilled at the flavor it left. maybe next time i’ll try a dryer chip.
