Great fish coating. I don't like all the grease and salt from potato chips so I do half potato chips and half crushed corn flakes and my family loves it.

Very good. Great tip from bhall to put the fish on top of the bread crumbs and pat the potato chip mixture on.

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.
