Chicken Bites with Purple Potato Chips


I seldom take my children to a fast food chain restaurant, but when they want chicken nuggets, I take them there.   However, four pieces of chicken nuggets really won’t fill them up and they are hungry again after an hour.   So, I decided to make it at home. As I was cooking them, my family couldn’t stop popping the cooked chicken in their mouths.   These chicken bites were  so good my children begged me to make them again as well as the purple potato. Nothing beats homemade.


  • 4 halves chicken breast; cut into bite sizes
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon and pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 medium purple potato, thinly sliced
  • vegetable oil for frying


  1. Combine all purpose flour, cornstarch, lemon and pepper seasoning, and shredded parmesan cheese in a large Ziploc bag and mix well.  Set aside.
  2. Combine lemon juice, salt, and buttermilk in a separate medium bowl.
  3. Add the chicken in the buttermilk mixture and marinate for at least 3o minutes in the fridge. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the deep pan with oil over medium heat.
  5. Fry the purple potato until golden brown.  Removed and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil.
  6. Remove the chicken from the fridge.  Take about three to four pieces of chicken from the marinade and place in the Ziploc bag with the flour mixture. Close to secure the bag then shake it for 10 seconds making sure the chicken is well-coated with the flour mixture.
  7. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  8. Carefully, put the chicken in batches in oil and fry until the chicken is golden brown.
  9. Remove the chicken and place them in a bowl lined with paper towel to  drain any excess oil.
  10. Arrange the chicken bites and potato chips on a plate lined with wax paper(optional) and serve with ketchup.
