  • Vegetable Oil For frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 16 oz dill pickle chips drained and patted dry


  • Prepare oil  for frying by heating vegetable oil in a pan to medium high heat until it reaches 375 degrees.
  • Meanwhile whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, onion and garlic in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In another small bowl whisk together the buttermilk and egg.
  • One at a time, dip each pickle chip in the flour mixture first, followed by the egg mixture and finishing with another coat of the flour mixture. Continue until all pickle chips are coated.
  • Working in small batches, carefully place the pickle chips in the heated oil and cook for about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown.
  • Remove the chips from the oil and place on a cooling rack. Continue this process until all pickle chips are cooked.
  • Serve with ranch dressing.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container lined with paper towels. Keep in the fridge. Reheat in oven, toaster oven, or air fryer for best results.
