Description

Slice a few pickles, dip them in a light, cornmeal batter, and enjoy the best Fried Pickle Chips ever! Dip them in a Sriracha mayonnaise or mustard sauce for additional awesomeness. YUM!

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Small To Medium, Kosher Dill Pickles
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Whole Milk
  • 2 whole Beaten Eggs
  • ⅔ cups Corn Meal (or Fine Dry Breadcrumbs)
  • ½ cups Canola Oil (or Peanut Oil)

Preparation

Cut pickles in 1/2-1/4 inch slices. Place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes. Pour the canola oil in a cast iron skillet or pan, over medium-heat; the oil should be approximately 1/2 inch thick.

When your oil is hot (I always test it by sprinkling a little water in the oil, when it pops you know it’s ready), start preparing the pickle chips. Dip pickle slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then cornmeal. In the skillet, place batter-covered pickles in the oil, careful that it may pop back, for 1-2 minutes on each side or until brown. After they’re done, remove and place on a paper towel to drain.

Pair Fried Pickle Chips with mustard sauce or Sriracha mayonnaise … or both … and beer. This snack requires a good beer.

Yes, you should be good with vegetable oil.

I made these last weekend. They were a BIG hit with my homemade Buffalo Chicken Tenders and Bleu Cheese dipping sauce.

These are really good. I used Vlasic thick cut oval hamburger chips and they turned out perfect.

Well, I made a big mistake on this – I was making some pickles at the same time so accidently used just pickling cucumbers intead of pickles! But, they tasted great and my family really enjoyed them :) So I gave this recipe 5 mitts, because we can only imagine how good they will be when I make them again with pickles!!

After reading this recipe and the blog post I made these the other night, for guests, and they were delish. The coating stays on really well. I’m not a dill pickle fan, but, strangely, I liked the warm dill pickle inside the fried cornmeal.
They were easy to make ( a plus for a schmuck like me). They came together fairly quickly too. I used a large dill pickle cut into slices. I did not have the ingredients for the dips, but I can imagine they would totally add that zing that makes it sing.
This recipe is in my folder and I plan to make it again, often.

My family loved these! I used pickle chips from Aldi. They were so easy to make! Definitley will make these again–SOON!! They went excellently with our homemade Buffalo Chicken Tenders and homemade Bleu Cheese dipping sauce. Why go out when you can make all your favorite resturant dishes at home?!
