Pringles “Fried” Chicken for a Change of Pace
Everybody loves fried chicken. So, I looked around the pantry for something new as a breading. I’ve done the French’s fried onions, and the corn flakes, and the panko crumbs, but I hadn’t tried Pringles. I happen to have a can of Pringles Cheezums , and it sounds like the perfect dinner. Crispy Pringles Chicken brought a new flavor to my table and it only took a quick minute to make. (And I think only seconds to devour!) The best news is it’s baked, so you don’t have to worry about frying the chicken, or all the extra calories from it.
Pringles “Fried” Chicken is a Flavor Extravaganza
Pringles has a large variety of flavors available on your grocer’s shelf. Any one of those flavors makes a phenomenal Crispy Pringles Chicken. I used cheddar sour cream because it’s one of our favorite but I’m looking forward to trying sour cream and onion as well as pizza and baked potato. The sky really is the limit with your favorite choices. You can even try mixing flavors to get a new combination for Crispy Pringles Chicken. A tip with the Pringles is before you use them on the chicken crush them evenly and finely for your best end result.
