Doritos Chicken for supper

Now I did it, I got everyone in the office going home this evening to make their own Doritos Chicken. I found the recipe online, and it just looked so yummy! I am using Zesty Cheese Doritos, one of my co-workers plans to make Sweet Chili Heat Doritos Chicken, and the other is planning on making Cool Rance Doritos Chicken. Want to know something even better? We each promised to bring in a sample of our spicy goodness so that we can determine which is best. You got it, a Doritos Chicken Challenge

Stay Tuned. For now, here is the recipe:

Doritos Crusted Chicken Breasts with Salsa


2 large chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
1 jar Salsa (your favorite kind โ€“ it should be at room temperature!)
1 bag Doritos (Sweet Chili Heat, or your favorite kind)
1 cup milk
1 egg


In a food processor, grind Doritos into a coarse meal. You need about 2 cups of the ground Doritos. Once ground, place the meal into a large bowl.

In a small bowl, beat the egg well. Pour in the milk and whisk until blended.

Dip a chicken breast into the egg wash, and then dredge it in the Doritos meal until fully coated on all sides. Place coated breast into a greased baking dish. Repeat process with remaining breast.

Bake breasts in 350 (F) degree oven for 25 minutes or until internal temperature is 165. Remove from oven and cover each breast liberally with salsa. You can serve at this point, or bake an additional 5 minutes to warm the salsa up. Plate this on a bed of Spanish rice, or by itself.

    1. The ends of bags of chips? That’s the best part, where all the flavor lies. Great Idea…now salads won’t be boring (or healthy) anymore….thanks for the tip…lol

    1. when you think about it, it really isn’t that bad, one egg, skinless chicken breast, and not really that much doritos. Plus we used 4 chicken breast. I bet shake n bake has an equal amount of fat and salt. We had this for supper last night, and it was great
