Sour Cream and Onion Chicken

Hannah Canvasser


  • chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 Cup  all-purpose flour
  • eggs, beaten
  • 2 Cups  crushed sour cream and onion chips
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste
  •   Canola oil, for frying


There was a point in time when we thought that nothing could get better than the taste of a sour cream and onion dip. That was until we crushed up the flavorful chips, breaded a chicken breast with them, and fried it. 


Place each of the 4 chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and lightly pound with a meat mallet to thin each of them out. Season the breasts with salt and pepper to taste. 

Place the flour, eggs, and crushed chips in 3 separate bowls or shallow dishes. First dredge each of the chicken breasts in the flour, then the eggs, and then the chips.

Fill a large skillet with about 2 inches of the canola oil and heat to 350 degrees. Fry the chicken breasts on low to medium-low heat until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes per side.
