Today I am excited to share with you a simple and delicious dinner idea that will make those busy weeknights go so much easier! We’ve got a household of picky eaters and one of my go to meal ingredients is chicken because everyone will eat it. I get sick of serving the same old thing so sometimes I like to change it up hence the creation of this Kettle Chip Crusted Chicken. What better way to add flavor and crunch to your chicken then by using your favorite snacks to enhance it? Deep River Snacks kettle chips come in a wide range of unique flavors like Black Truffle and Sweet Maui Onion (which I used in this recipe and it was delish!). We love the different flavor varieties available and they offer the perfect texture and crunch you look for with potato chips. Exactly what I needed to add some life to our chicken tenders. Because of the amazing texture of these kettle chips you can keep the recipe a little lighter by baking in the oven while helping to achieve that perfect crispy texture you usually only get by deep frying. Our favorites for breading chicken (so far) are the Mesquite BBQ and the Sweet Maui Onion. We can’t wait to try some of our other favorite snack flavors such as the Aged Cheddar Horseradish (my husbands favorite flavor) or the New York Spicy Dill Pickle. Elevate your dinner to the next level with this easy dinner idea for Kettle Chip Crusted Chicken! You’ll start by preheating your oven and getting everything ready to bread your chicken. I like to use a baking sheet and greased cooling rack to keep the chicken crispy while baking. Crush the kettle chips in a baggie to the desired texture (we prefer to leave a few bigger pieces for some texture and added crunch) and add in panko crumbs. You’ll also have a bowl with the beaten eggs as well as a plate of flour. Bread your chicken tenders by placing them first in the flour, then the egg wash, then finish off with the chip crumb coating. Place on baking sheet. You’ll bake them until cooked through and juices run clear (depending on your oven and size of chicken tenders this could range from 15-25 minutes.) Use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is cooked thoroughly. Enjoy! We whipped up some honey mustard and fry sauce to use as dips. Below you can see the difference between the Sweet Maui Onion Crusted Chicken (left) and the Mesquite BBQ Chicken (right). Not only do these make a delicious main course, but they are perfect for football season and tailgate parties!
