Ingredients
 
 

  • 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
  • vegetable oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • 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.

Notes

  • *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 chip..no one.
