“Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” 

Harriet Van Horne

I  came across this recipe while searching for something different to make for my grandson since the adults where having something spicy and I have to say the concept is really quite intriguing. I mean seriously, who would think of crusting chicken tenders with Nacho Cheese Doritos™? Certainly not me but it works and was a great success.

Here’s how we do this one.

Shopping list:

  • 8 to 10 Chicken Tenders
  • 2 cups ground Nacho Cheese Doritos
  • 4 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup AP Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Granulated Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Parsley Flakes

Putting it all together:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°
  2. Set up your dredging station by seasoning the flour with the salt, pepper, garlic, onion and parsley and place in one container. Whisk the eggs in a second container and place the ground Doritos in a third.
  3. Working in batches, two or three at a time, dredge the chicken in the flour, the egg wash and finally the Doritos and place aside. Repeat with the remaining tenders.
  4. Place the tenders on a baking sheet and put in the oven until they are golden brown (about 18 mins.) or they reach 160° internal temperature.
  5. Plate and enjoy.

There you have it another “simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond.”

Until next time……….
