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!
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:

2. What am I going to do to keep them from sliding backwards in their reading ability?
