We’ve noted that 2022 is all about fun, creativity, comfort and nostalgia, so this month we’ve put together a crunchy chicken recipe that is sure to please your whole family - including your inner kiddo! This crunchy, savory chicken recipe is perfect sliced over a garden salad or served alongside some oven-roasted potatoes, and gives you the added fun of getting creative by choosing the flavor Dorito you want to incorporate – while Nacho Cheese is a tried and true favorite, you can kick it up a notch by using Spicy Sweet Chili, Cool Ranch or Jalepeno!
1 bag of Doritos in your flavor of choice
2 tablespoons milk
2 chicken breasts or 6-8 chicken tenders
Preheat the oven to 400°F If using chicken breasts, cut the chicken into strips (about ¾″) and place them on a baking sheet. Crush Doritos using a food processor until crumbled/course – not a powder – place crushed Doritos in a bowl or deep baking dish. Whisk together egg & milk in a separate bowl.
Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture and then into the Doritos mixture. Place on a parchment-lined pan and lightly spray the tops of the chicken with cooking spray. Bake 15-17 minutes or until cooked through. Then dig in and don’t get caught finger-licking!
