Meunière is a sauce used primarily on fish (Sole) which is pan fried, while the fish (Primarily Cod and Haddock) in fish and chips are battered and deep fried in oil.
"Meunière refers to both a sauce and a method of preparation, primarily for fish. The word itself means "miller's wife". Thus to cook something à la meunière was to cook it by first dredging it in flour. A meunière sauce is a simple preparation-brown butter, chopped parsley, and lemon-and the name refers to its unelaborate rustic nature."

"Fish and chips is a hot dish consisting of fried fish in batter served with chips."
