This potato chip chicken recipe is not as unhealthy as it sounds, we promise. It uses crushed potato chips in place of bread crumbs to make breaded chicken. That chicken can then be fried or baked according to your preference. We like this recipe because it's a great way to use up the tail end of a potato chip bag, stretching our grocery store dollars and avoiding waste. Plus, who doesn't want to eat potato chips for dinner?

This particular potato chip chicken recipe by food blogger Taste and Tell uses sour cream and onion potato chips to bread the chicken; she then pan fries them to golden perfection. It's a beauty. Get her recipe and waste not one chip.
