Potato Chip Chicken Nuggets

I’m attempting to learn how to cook. Yes, if you live in my house that’s a funny thing. I have a family recipe book, so I’m going to start pulling recipes from there. I thought I would share some of these recipes with my readers. I saw this recipe and thought about how easy it would be to make. The ingredients are pretty simple too.

2 Cups of Crushed Sour Cream and Onion Flavored Potato Chips.
6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts Cut Into 1 1/2 Inch Pieces.
1/3 Cup Melted Butter.
1 Egg.
2 Tablespoons of Milk.

Option Ingredients:
Ketchup, Ranch Dressing, Honey Mustard Dressing, Sweet N Sour Sauce, BBQ Sauce.

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Crush potato chips fine to make 2 cups and set aside in a large dish. Melt butter to make 1/3 cup and set aside. Rinse off chicken in cold water and pat dry with paper towel. With kitchen scissors, cut chicken into 1 1/2 inch pieces and put into bowl. In another bowl beat together 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk. Dip chicken pieces into egg mix then into potato crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet. When all pieces are on the cookie sheet, drizzle with melted butter. Bake 15 to 18 minutes at 350 degrees, the nuggets should be golden brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

I had Angry Husband help me with some of the prep for this. Instead of cutting the chicken into strips, he kinda cubed it. I think it can be cut either way and it will be fine. After all was said and done, Angry Husband said that the potato chips could have been crushed a little finer. He also said that you could probably use any type of potato chip.

We served the nuggets with french fries, the frozen kind. I’m not bold enough to make french fries quite yet.

Whoa.. I am impressed is all I can say. You go girl.


I have an eerily similar recipe for potato chip nuggets. I basically just add the crushed up chips to the recipe on the Bisquik box. Oh yah, and I use the BBQ flavored chips. It's pretty damn delicious. You should take up crockpot cooking. You'll seem gourmet, but really you just slop stuff in a big pot and set a dial. You might have to stir before serving though. ;)

Wow, for a full-time working mom, you have a lot going on with this blog. Congratulations! And this recipe sounds wonderful. I'm going to try it, I'm always looking for a chicken nugget recipe that my picky-son will eat!


Hi there, good luck in your quest to learn to cook ... my advice is to be patient and try and try again! You get better with time and practice (just make sure that hubby lies and cleans his plate while you are learning or you may decided to quit... no since looking like a fool, right?!)Make it a great day!
