  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar dill pickle slices
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ cup water
  • cups panko breadcrumbs


  • Fill a frying pan with ½ inch oil and heat over medium-high heat to 350–375 degrees F.
  • While oil is heating, drain pickles and place on paper towels. Pat dry to remove any excess juice.
  • Whisk flour, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and pepper together in a shallow bowl. Add water and mix until smooth.
  • Place breadcrumbs in a separate shallow dish.
  • Working in batches, add pickles to the batter and toss to coat. Then dip pickles in breadcrumbs, making sure to coat all sides.
  • Fry pickles in batches in the oil for 1–2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining pickles.
  • Serve immediately with ranch dressing.



Air Fryer Directions: Preheat the fryer to 425 degrees F. Bread the pickles as directed, then place in a single layer in the fryer basket and cook for 7–9 minutes. They should be golden brown and crispy. Flip the pickles and cook for an additional 7 minutes on the other side.
Variations: Feel free to change up the seasonings in the batter for a different flavor. Add some paprika or chili powder to make it a little spicy.
