Potato Chip-Crusted Chicken

When it comes to adding impact to otherwise ordinary chicken breasts, look to crusting them. Crushed potato chips are a simple yet flavorful addition, and a quick orzo side dish rounds out the meal just right. Modify this crusted-chicken dish simply by altering the type of chip you use. For a spicy version, use jalapeño-flavored chips.

Pulse potato chips in a food processor until coarsely ground; transfer to a shallow dish.

Combine mayonnaise, scallion whites, and garlic; spread on both sides of breasts. Press chips onto both sides of breasts to coat.

Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium-high until shimmering. Add breasts and sauté until golden brown on both sides and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°, 5 minutes per side. Top breasts with scallion greens.


So the chips retain some texture, pulse them in a food processor just until they’re coarsely ground.


Brushing the breasts with the mayonnaise mixture adds both flavor and richness to them.


The mayonnaise mixture helps the chips adhere, but press them into the breasts to ensure they stick.
