Baked Chicken with Crispy Potato Chip Crust

Tom's aunt made this for dinner and gave me the recipe some years ago - yes it really does use potato chips, and yes the end result is extra crunchy and really good! I modified the original recipe just a little bit to suit my needs.

1/4 cup olive oil
4 large cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 cup dijon mustard
2 tsp. dried basil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

4 ounces potato chips, crushed
1/2 cup GF breadcrumbs
2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray, set aside.

Combine the olive oil through the basil, blend well. Coat chicken thickly with this mixture and let marinate for half an hour.

In a shallow dish, combine the crushed potato chips through the pepper, tossing well. Coat the chicken with the potato chip mixture and set on baking sheet. Bake until the topping is crisp and the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
