“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……….

    I’ve seen that recipe online, but I’ve never liked the taste of that flavor of chips. Maybe cooking this them this way makes it better? Could be!
