This quick recipe is one I discovered 20 years ago in a fund-raiser cookbook. Since my husband is an avid fisherman, I've put it to good use over the years. The crispy potato chip coating bakes up toasty brown, and the fillets stay nice and moist. —Sharon Funfsinn, Mendota, Illinois

Really good! Barely had enough breading, think i'll double the breading ingredients next time. I used cod but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Husband loved it :)

This is very good as is, but next time I will drizzle a little fresh lemon over the top when I serve it. I really like lemon on fish.

We catch our own fish (Walleye & Perch) The trick is dip in milk,put it on top of the bread crumbs & then put crushed potato chip mixture & drizzled butter on it It comes out perfect every time. Family & friends love it!

the potato chip mixture did not stick well to the fish and so the flavor did not coat the fish like it should have and so tasted like cooked catfish.
