"This is one of the best recipes I've ever used," notes Jody Roberts from her home in Hollister, California. Crushed potato chips make the crispy coating for the moist tender chicken. "Not only is it quick and easy, but I think it tastes better than fried chicken," she adds.

"This is a great way to use up all those chip pieces at the bottom of the bag! I leave out the 1/2 tsp salt. To keep the chips crisp, I prefer to bake in the oven and try not to put too many chips on the bottom."
