"This recipe has been tweaked many times over the years and is a great hit. The cucumber wasabi dipping sauce is fantastic! Even the kids love them and good luck getting them to eat plain green beans!"
Blend ranch dressing, cucumber, 1 tablespoon milk, horseradish, vinegar, wasabi powder, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and cayenne pepper together in a food processor until dip is smooth. Transfer dip to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
Bring water and chicken broth to a boil; add green beans and cook until slightly tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
Whisk egg and 1 tablespoon milk together in a bowl. Combine bread crumbs, French-fried onions, 3/4 teaspoon salt, onion powder, black pepper, and garlic powder together in a separate bowl. Place flour in a third bowl.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Press green beans in flour until evenly coated. Dip coated green beans in egg-milk mixture, allowing excess liquid to drip back into bowl. Transfer green beans to bread crumbs mixture and press to coat, shaking off excess. Arrange coated beans in 1 layer on a plate or in a colander.
Working in batches, fry coated green beans in the hot oil until crisp, about 1 minute 30 seconds. Transfer green bean fries to a paper towel-lined colander using a slotted spoon. Serve green bean fries with dip.
Substitute 2% milk for the whole milk, if desired. Use 2 teaspoons instead of 1 tablespoon.
