Crispy Chicken Strips: Coat chicken tenders (or boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut lengthwise into thirds) in crushed potato chips (use barbecue or jalapeño for zing), pressing gently to help them adhere. Bake at 400°F until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
Crunchy Mac 'n' Cheese: Crush 1 cup potato chips, then toss with 2 scallions (finely chopped) and 2 Tbsp chopped parsley. Sprinkle over mac 'n' cheese and bake for 20 minutes.
