A recipe for Fried Pickle Chips. Panko Fried Pickle Chips with a bleu cheese dipping sauce. I’m kind of a pickle hater. I really only like them when its relish. So these were interesting for me. Let me tell you though, these are good. Even for non pickle fans. They are SUPER crispy, and easy to make, and delicious. The bleu cheese in my opinion is the best part. You should make them for Superbowl. Duh. This is why this week we are just posting artery clogging food. Then next week, we can all go to us magazine and search for the latest celebrity liquid cleanse (just kidding). Ok, so yay football, yay fried foods. Go Lakers! (bad joke, I know)

Panko Fried Pickle Chips

Servings: 8


  • 2 cups ridge cut pickle chips, pressed between paper towels
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste

bleu cheese dipping sauce

  • ½ cup light mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • ¼ cup crumbled bleu cheese
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoons chives, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying


  • Preheat oil to 350°F.
  • Place flour, eggs and panko in three separate shallow dishes.
  • Dredge pickle chips in flour, shaking off any excess, followed by the egg and finally in the panko until fully coated. Set coated pickle chips onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes.
  • While the chips are in the freezer make the dipping sauce: Place all the sauce ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk together. Set aside covered in plastic wrap until ready to use.
  • Remove pickle chips from freezer and fry in batches, for about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Drain onto paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Repeat until all the pickle chips have been fried. Serve immediately with bleu cheese dipping sauce.


  • *Just a quick tip: Pressing the pickle chips between paper towels before dredging and placing them in the freezer before frying are two VERY important step to ensure light and crispy pickle chips! No one likes a soggy pickle one.

    Oh my gosh. I just died on the inside a little… mostly because I got very excited and then very sad that these aren’t in front me. I happen to be, if you couldn’t tell from my melodramatic response, a big pickle guy, especially friend pickles. I am trying this recipe asap. Thanks for sharing and reminding me how much I love these things.

  32. Jess Not Specified Not Specified

    I just wanted to say that I made a small (halved) batch of these yesterday, in honor of the Super Bowl, and they were AMAZING. I will absolutely be making these again, and they were so crispy and delicious compared to the greasy restaurant versions. I made mine with bread and butter pickles, which lended a hint of sweetness to them, and made a ranch dressing on the side for my no-bleu-cheese boyfriend.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!

  33. Kevin (Closet Cooking) Not Specified Not Specified

    Those fried pickles look good!

  34. tiki barbara Not Specified Not Specified

    just made these for my valentine… ridiculous!! i wish i had one of those 5-gallon jars of pickle slices in the pantry… so flipping good! sadly, my bleu cheese was a little too blue (read: moldy), so i improvised with chipotles in adobo sauce with the rest of the dipping sauce ingredients… nice save, if i do say so myself. thanks for the inspiration to give pickles a fry at home. the gorgeous photos made it impossible to pass up!

    I’ve seen fried pickles on restaurant menus before but have never tried them. I have a feeling they’d be one of those addictive things. I want to try one!

  37. Misti Not Specified Not Specified

    These look amazing! I was wondering if you could bake these instead of frying?

  38. Vanessa Carey Not Specified Not Specified

    You girls have outdone yourselves. These looks amazing and really unique. Never seen them before. Where did you get the inspiration?

  39. rachel Not Specified Not Specified

    Once these are fried up how long will they last if not eaten all in one setting?

    I’m going to experiment & try this with pickle spears too. I’ve had them in restaurants served with peanut butter. Sounds strange but a great combo.

    You didn’t think of these on your own. Site your inspiration/recipe source.

    Pickle chips have been around for at least 20 years. They are neither original or your idea.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      What are you talking about?! We never said we invented pickle chips….ever! This is hilarious! You cray!

    • Benita Not Specified Not Specified

      Get over yourself, its a shared recipe. No one said they invented it or taking credit. I swear some people have nothing better to do than complain. You must be bored….

  48. Anon Not Specified Not Specified

    You must’ve gotten the recipe or idea somewhere……

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Ok. So I guess we should all source our mashed potato recipes to a 1851 cookbook then… All of our recipes are original that we write. We don’t adapt. Ever. To think that everyone should site ideas like pickle chips to their original source is insane. That is just not going to happen. We will never spend endless hours on the internet to find the person who invented pickle chips or any other typical and widely used recipe concept.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      The idea of breading? Why yes, breading and frying are techniques that have been around for a very long time…

    • Tammy Not Specified Not Specified

      Seriously? People see foods all the time & adapt their own version. I live in the South where everything is shot, skinned, cleaned, breaded, fried or smothered in gravy. Everybody has their own style, recipe or version. Nobody cares WHERE the idea came from. Enjoy the recipe, make up your own or don’t. But don’t ruin a good blog.

    i don’t have seasoned panko only regular. any idea as to what seasonings to use?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      I would definitely add some garlic powder/onion powder or fresh minced garlic and whatever herbs you prefer! (thyme, chives, oregano, sage)

  56. Alex Not Specified Not Specified

    These were amazing!! I double dipped the flour and egg just to make the breading a bit thicker. I did not have seasoned panko so I seasoned it with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. We burnt our mouths devouring these. By far the best fried pickles I have ever had.

  57. Joni Sweeney Not Specified Not Specified

    These were so good. We’ve tried many ways to make them but I think the 3-step dipping along with the freezing is the success key. We’ll be making them again!
