“My mom used to make this all the time when I was a kid. She'd save the crumbs left at the end of every bag of Lays potato chips until she had enough to make this. This is such a fun way to eat chicken! The quantities here are approximate, to give you an idea.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Mix the potato chips, cheese, and garlic powder in a large ziploc bag.
  3. Melt the butter or margarine in a shallow dish.
  4. You can cut the chicken breasts into strips if you want to do this as chicken fingers.
  5. Moisten the chicken pieces in the butter or margarine, then seal them in the ziploc bag, and shake to coat.
  6. Lay the chicken out on a baking sheet (I always cover the sheet with foil for easy cleanup). If you want to, you can cover the chicken with the leftover coating.
  7. Bake 40 minutes for whole breasts, 30 minutes for strips.
