There are so many different types of potato chips. You could probably eat a different variety everyday for weeks! Did you ever think of cooking with these tasty snacks?

Here are three unique recipes using three different flavors of chips that will be sure to have you looking a these salty treats in a whole new way.

We will use barbeque kettle, thin and crispy regular, and salt & vinegar kettle chips.

Barbeque Crusted Chicken Breast

Using kettle chips gives these birds an extra crunch because they are cut thicker plus the barbeque is already on the chip!

Potato Chip Cookies

Having just a hint of the salt in this sugar cookie recipe means using thinner, regular flavored chips!

Salt & Vinegar Crusted Fish

Salt & vinegar chips add the tang for this fish dinner and using the thicker, kettle chips gives the coating a great crunch!

    My mother used to make potato chip cookies when I was a little girl ( which was longer than I like to think about). They were delicious, can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
