Spicy Dill Pickle Chip Chicken Fingers

Spicy Dill Pickle Chip Chicken Fingers with Buttermilk Dill Ranch

I have a new obsession friends… it’s called Spicy Dill Pickle Chips. Have you seen them? Lordy they are going to be the end of me.

And guess what else is interesting??

After eating ridiculous amounts of these delicious chips straight up I thought it might be good to coat some chicken with them and fry it. It is. Very good.

***Note: you can bake these if you want, but guys, might I remind you that we are coating the chicken in potato chips? I think we threw the healthy out of this recipe a long time ago, yes? I am also the girl that orders Diet Coke with my burger & fries, so don’t listen to me. You do whatever lets you sleep at night.
I’m going to fry them. Dip them in ranch and not even eat salad with them. Because it’s Friday.
