BBQ Chip Chicken Fingers

Chicken fingers have been a Megan & Cedar specialty for a while. This is a simple American twist on our grandma’s Italian style chicken fingers. It’s also a great recipe to prepare for an indoor BBQ on those hot summer days when you don’t feel like going outside to grill.


1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (cut into strips)

1 bag of BBQ Potato Chips

1 cup of Plain Bread Crumbs

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

Vegetable Oil (enough to fry with)


Crush bag of BBQ chips into crumbs. Set aside approximately ½ cup of the crushed BBQ chips & combine remaining BBQ chips & plain bread crumbs a small bowl.  In another small bowl combine egg & milk to make an egg wash. Heat oil to 350 degrees. While oil is heating, coat chicken strips in the egg wash, then bread in the chip mixture; repeat step to double bread the strips. Place breaded strips in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Remove from oil and sprinkle with BBQ chips that were set aside.

    It’s true these have been a “specialty” ever since highschool. They were a favorite with our friends either after school or when my grandparents would deliever a hot batch for everyone at lunch time! Another great twist, my little cousin taught us, is to bread them in a mixture of coconut flakes, panko bread crumbs, & plain bread crumbs. It’s sooo simple but ohh so yummy!
