FOOD- Doritos Crusted Chicken Strips

Doritos Crusted Chicken Strips from #chicken #maindish #recipe

I used generic Doritos and I'm wondering if that affected the quality of the recipe. Next time I will use actual Doritos.

Doritos Crusted Chicken Strips
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 large bag of Doritos, Nacho Cheese Flavor  (11.5 ounce)
2 cups flour (This was WAY too much flour! I would start with 1 cup and add more if needed)
4 egg whites (Also had a lot left over...I'd start with 2 and add later)
1/2 Tablespoon of Garlic Salt
Cut the chicken into thin ½ inch strips.
Using a food processor, crush the Doritos so that they are a texture coarse like bread crumbs. Set aside in a large bowl. (If you don't have a food processor, make a small hole in the Doritos bag and get the air out of it. Then use a rolling pin and crush the chips in the bag).
Mix the flour and salt in one bowl and eggs in another. Whisk the eggs so that they are well scrambled.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Set up the four bowls in order: 1. bowl with the chicken, 2. bowl with the flour and salt, 3. bowl with the beaten eggs, 4. bowl with the crushed Doritos, and then the pan.

Lift out a few chicken strips and place them in the flour so they are all coated. Lift the chicken strips out of the flour and shake off any excess. Place them in the eggs and turn them so they are evenly coated. Lift them out of the egg and then place them in the crushed Doritos - again so they are even coated. Place the coated chicken strips on the baking sheet. Do this with the remaining chicken strips.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes

They turned out good! The chips I used tasted a little weird after being cooked, but I'm hoping using real Doritos will give it a different effect! My kids loved them and I enjoyed them a lot. I'm not sure I would make them regularly though because of the lack of nutritional value. 


  1. I'm gonna pin this one. Hopefully I actually try it. :)

    1. It's so fun to actually start doing some of the things I've pinned! I always intend to but don't usually get around to it. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This looks delicious. I will try this recipe as soon as I can. Maybe I will do it for one of the New Orleans Saints football games.

    1. Yeah! That would be a great party food! Guys watching football would love it (and the ladies)!
