I turned leftover potato chip crumbs into dinner last week, using my mom’s parmesan chicken as inspiration. I crushed the crumbs up, added some panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese, then used that as a coating to make homemade chicken tenders. The results were delicious and I was glad to use items I already had on hand.
Parmesan chicken tenders
2-3 boneless chicken breasts, cut in 2 inch cubes
½ cup potato chip crumbs (mine were sour cream and onion)
½ cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Combine the chips, breadcrumbs and cheese in a bowl, stirring to blend. I did not add additional salt and pepper to the coating, but I did salt and pepper the chicken pieces before dredging them in the coating. Shake off excess coating and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick coating.
Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes, turning after about 10 minutes. They will brown nicely and look like this when they are done:
My husband and youngest son loved them! This is a super simple dinner that could be made with ingredients on hand. I added broccoli and rice and called dinner done! (Using the fine China!)
