Potato Chip Chicken Recipe
6 chicken drumsticks
2 Tbsp Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups potato chips, coarsely crushed
3 Tbsp freshly ground black pepper
2 cups vegetable oil
salt to taste
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle your raw chicken with Creole seasoning and set it aside. Place your flour in a wide, shallow bowl – something easy enough to put the entire drumstick in.
In a second shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together. In a third shallow bowl, mix the potato chips (already coarsely crushed) and pepper.
First, dip and cover the drumstick in the flour, shaking off any excess. Next, coat your drumstick in the egg mixture and then immediately dip in the chip mixture. Give the now crusted chicken a few presses to help the chips adhere to the drumstick.
In a large skillet, heat 1 cup of oil over medium heat. Add 3 drumsticks and cook until browned (roughly 5 or 6 minutes). Transfer them to a rack set on top of a baking sheet. Pour off the oil from your skillet and wipe it out. Repeat your frying with the remaining 1 cup oil and 3 more drumsticks.
Place six now-browned drumsticks in the oven and bake until the chicken is cooked through, 45 – 50 minutes or until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees (not touching the bone). Serve immediately and enjoy!
