Just a few days ago, a friend of mine posted this video from Cooking Panda on Facebook for a Doritos chicken recipe. Immediately my husband jumped on board and wanted to give it a try. This recipe only calls for 3 ingredients: boneless-skinless chicken breast, mayonnaise (or substitute), and a bag of Doritos (or generic substitute).
We simply coated the chicken in mayonnaise, then breaded it in a generic bag of nacho flavored corn chips. Any chip would probably work just fine – in fact, feel free to experiment with different kinds of chips! Try buttermilk instead of mayo and let us know how it goes.
We ran out of chips for the last few pieces of chicken so we ended up grabbing some breadcrumbs from the cabinet and seasoned it with half of pack of tacos seasoning!
Pop it in the oven on 375 for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness and size of your chicken.
The Doritos chicken fingers came out great -moist inside and crunchy on the outside!
You can easily spend $1-2 on a generic bag of chips, hopefully you already have a little bit of mayo in the fridge (it doesn’t take a lot), if not, a small jar will run you less than $2, and depending on the cost of chicken per lb, you can easily walk away with spending less than $5! Pair it with your favorite vegetable. Yum!
The only thing I would have done differently is pan-fry the chicken coated in bread crumbs instead of baking it.
Here is our end result:
After running errands this afternoon, this is exactly what I wanted – a quick, easy and affordable lunch.
This is such an awesome kid-friendly meal too. Bring them into the kitchen with you for this one!
