Potato Chip Chicken! ??

A long time ago, when I was a poor starving college student, I had to be creative when cooking. I learned to cook with stuff I had on-hand. You know, like the way some people learn to like drinking coffee black - you run out of sugar and milk. So you drink it anyway.

So, since I was bored today, and didnt have anything else to do, I decided to make my Potato Chip Chicken.

It's easy:

Take your favorite potato chip flavor - I use Lay's Barbecure Chips, of course, and smash them. Rather than waste a brand new bag, you can do this when you get close to the end of the bag. . . and roll your chicken parts in the crumbs.


Cook them indirect, at 350 degrees:


Ahhhh - plated for lunch:


The potato taste comes thru. I suggest using leaner chicken cuts, I used thighs and legs, too much grease. But geeze - quite tasty and check that color.

One thing - although the crust looks crispy, this is not so. The chips soften - probably becuase of the amount of grease in there.

Hmmmm - try this with salad croutons next?

    Great idea, makes me wonder what else to crush and coat with. Looks delish!

    Sounds less expensive than using Shake and Bake.

    I had some halibut this weekend that had a potato chip crust and it was great. You pick the flavor of chip and your done. Great idea for the chicken.
