Doritos Chicken Tenders

What's better... cool ranch or spicy nacho?! This is a big debate in our house. Sometime we're both for cool ranch, and sometimes we like nacho better. I hadn't made chicken in awhile, and Andrew just bought a bag of Doritos, so I figured why not combine the two?!

Our verdict: the spicy nacho was better.

Makes: 4 chicken fingers

  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. cool ranch Doritos
  • 1 c. spicy nacho Doritos
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Cut off any fat from chicken
  3. Cut in half longwise (to make thinner), then cut in half so you have four thin strips
  4. Fill five bowls: milk, flour, eggs, Doritos, and Doritos

  5. Optional: add red pepper flakes to flour and mix
  6. Crush Doritos (I used my hand, you could also use a food processor)
  7. Whisk eggs completely
  8. Take chicken from milk to flour to eggs to Doritos and place in greased baking pan
  9. Take the other chicken through same steps
  10. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes
  11. Take aluminum foil off and bake for another 5 minutes or until completely done and no longer pink in the middle
