Doritos Crusted Chicken Strips

Doritos are one of the few foods I can’t eat when I’m pregnant. As soon as the baby is out I pretty much inhale these things! These Doritos Crusted Chicken Strips taste delicious… and the man in your life will thank me!

Doritos Crusted Chicken Strips

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 large bag of Doritos, Nacho Cheese Flavor  (11.5 ounce)
2 cups flour
4 egg whites
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

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Mine is ranch and BBQ sauce!

Keep Kids Reading All Summer!
Parents have a lot to consider at the outset of summer vacation. Although every family does summer vacation differently, almost all have these two difficult questions to answer for their elementary-age children:
1. How am I going to keep my children occupied and using their brains for the next 90 days?
2. What am I going to do to keep them from sliding backwards in their reading ability?
Our friends at ChildrensBookstore.Com have made great effort to help answer the above questions. They have combed through thousands of craft and activity books to generate lists of the best books that contain hundreds of fun ideas that will keep kids active and learning through the summer.
Keeping kids reading when they think they’re “on vacation” is a skill and and art. The last thing any parent wants is for the hard work they did on reading with their children to wither in the hot summer sun. The article at this link contains excellent tips and information on how you can avoid the “summer slide”.

    I’ll try the nacho cheese doritos for my wife. I’ve done this before with Fritos (my fave) and some spices (cumin, cayenne, garlic salt, pepper, paprika, etc.). Just have to go easy on the spices if there are “short people” eating them, too (my 2 girls). The oil in the Fritos give them a great crunch as I’m sure is the case with the Doritos. Thanks for your recipes from a “dude” who loves to cook.

    My boys would go crazy for this recipe! They love Doritos and one of their favorite dinners is homemade chicken strips. Combining them would make me super Mom! I love this! Thank you so much for linking up with me. This will be featured @ Great Idea Thursday’s! Krista @ A Handful of Everything

    I tried this tonight after finding the link to the recipe from your weekly meal plan — and I loved it! It was a hit with my boyfriend, too. I’ve never been successful at anything with bread-crumbs for some reason, but this worked and I was half-expecting to fail at it. Yum! We ate it with ranch and siracha sauce. :)

      We usually have some type of a salad and a fruit or veggie. You can go to our main blog page and in the top right corner under categories you can click on salads or side dishes. That will give you some ideas. Hope this helps! :)

    I made this tonight for dinner and my kids LOVED it! Dinnertime has been so stressful lately because there isn’t one meal that they all like. My extremely picky and hard to please 6 year old went back for thirds! This will be a regular on our menu from now on. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh my goodness….its a hit! I made this for dinner tonight and my picky kids, who fight me tooth and nail to try any new foods, devoured them! I’m pretty sure my husband had four pieces! I was pretty over the moon myself. I made a big pan thinking we’d have plenty of leftovers and there wasn’t a single one left! It does my mama’s heart good to see my kids completely clean their plates of something I made! We found ourselves a keeper.
