Recipe: Crunch BBQ-Flavored Chicken

I devised this recipe from other recipes that have been floating around and shared between people for decades. I hope you enjoy!

4lbs of chicken (any pieces will do, assorted is best)
1/2 a stick of butter, melted (1/2 cup)
3 cups crushed BBQ flavored potato chips
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 15x10 inch baking pan.

Mix your crushed potato chips, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper together into freezer bag.

Dip your chicken in the melted butter ensuring it is well coated. I prefer to use a large resealable freezer bag and take care not to touch the hot butter.

Take your buttery-goodness chicken and toss it into the potato chip bag mixture, seal the bag and shake it up to coat well.

Lay coated chicken in your greased 15x10 inch baking pan then bake for 1 hour.

Smaller pieces such as wings need less time, begin checking your chicken after 30 minutes or so.
Adjust the garlic, onion and cayenne to suit your taste.
Does not freeze well. Must be "re-crisped".
