Cooking with Potato Chips: Chicken & Cookies

Potato chips are an interesting ingredient to add to a recipe. This snack food is often overlooked as an ingredient, but if you think about it, they provide a light crunch and a salty flavor boost to any dish. I particularly like them added to chocolate chip cookies because I’m a huge fan of salty sweet treats.

In these two recipes it’s important to use a sturdy potato chip, like these thicker ridged potato chips, or else you’ll lose the crunch, which is half the enjoyment. They also hold up best when using them in dishes that offer a counter taste, like the buttermilk marinade for the chicken or the chocolate chips in the cookies.
