Get Poppin' with popchips {Giveaway}

Monday, March 17, 2014
Are potato chips one of your vices? You love the taste but don't love the guilt that comes with them?

I can totally relate.

I especially love eating potato chips with a sub or a sandwich, but once I start thinking about the bread, the mayo, and all the sandwich stuffings, the guilt of eating potato chips totally gets me.

That was until popchips hit the snacking scene and turned everything around.

popchips are naturally delicious and healthier than traditional potato chips. What sets Popchips apart from the rest? Well, several things, and they are all good.

popchips are never fried. Frying puts alot of unnecessary stuff in a chip that just doesn't belong.

popchips are never baked. Baking takes a lot of the good stuff out that totally belongs in a chip.

popchips are popped! Using heat and pressure, the potato is popped for a healthier and tastier alternative. A flavorful blend of seasonings is added to give popchips a unique taste that's perfect for the whole family.

The popchips pledge is simple. "No fake colors, no fake flavors, no preservatives, no fluorescent orange fingertips, and no wiping your greasy chip hand on your jeans."

Now that's a pledge I can get behind.

But can you have a healthy chip that tastes good too? You sure can! popchips don't taste like a piece of cardboard like many other "healthier" or baked chips. They have a great texture and are light and non-greasy. They also have the crunch of a potato chip which is hard to get in a baked chip.

popchips are available in potato and tortilla varieties. To see all selections, click here. My favorite flavors are original and salt & pepper, but my daughters love sea salt & vinegar.

And, popchips aren't just for snacking. You can use them for cooking, too! What???

Next time, you make chicken, keep the bread crumbs in the pantry and reach for almonds and popchips instead.

Almond-Crusted Chicken Breasts
Crusted with cheddar potato popchips for added flavor

1/2 cup unsalted almonds, toasted
1/2 cup of cheddar potato popchips
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 garlic clove
1/4 teaspoon salt
4-to-5 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

2. In the work bowl of a food processor, place the almonds, popchips, olive oil, lemon zest and juice, rosemary, garlic, and salt.  Process until coarsely chopped; the mixture will be a thick paste.

3. Arrange the chicken breast halves in a baking dish. Divide the almond paste and spread on the breasts; pat down to cover each breast completely.

4. Roast in the oven until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 deg F to 170 deg F, about 10 minutes. Loosely tent with foil and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
