Preheat oil to 360-370 degrees.
2. Combine all batter ingredients and stir until smooth, let
sit at least 5 minutes.
3. Dab pickle slices on paper towels to dry them. Place
about 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs in a bowl (add more as
needed). (If they get wet, they don't stick so it's best to
work in small batches.)
4. Dip each pickle slice in the wet batter and then gently
toss in the bread crumbs, let sit for a minute or so, this
will allow the crumbs to stick better.
5. Fry in small batches for 3-4 minutes or until brown and
6. Serve with ranch dip.
