Doritos are awesome. Chicken is awesome. When you combine the two, the result is awesome.
Yesterday I had a good, dumb idea. Why not make chicken that is covered in crushed up Doritos? If people can make chicken bakes that are covered in cornflakes, surely the deliciousness that is Doritos would be even better. Spoiler alert, it was.
Now, I’m not going to tell you that this was life-changing (it was) or Earth-shattering (totally was) but I will tell you it rocked (in an epic way not too far off of the feeling you get when you are front row at an Imagine Dragons concert…or, at least I imagine).
I used most of a regular bag of Doritos, crushed em, and put em in a shallow Tupperware container. Meanwhile, my beautiful fiancée mixed up some egg and milk to dip the chicken breasts in. Once the chicken had the egg mix on it, then it was covered in Doritos. Once covered, we put the Dorito-encrusted chickens in a stone from Pampered Chef and threw it in the oven for about 20 minutes. That’s it. It’s that easy.
I added a cilantro-lime rice side from Zatarains and steamed up some microwaveable broccoli and voila! An easy dinner in 30 minutes, flat.
Just so I don’t sound like a really busy mom who has a blog about making life easier on the way to soccer practice, Dos Equis Amber went real well with the food.
I definitely say give it a shot, though. It’s cheap and darn good. Plus, when you’re done cooking, you have Doritos left over for snackin!
P.S. – I got those Doritos Blaze that Tyrion advertises…they’re hot. Like I tried to see how many I could eat without getting a drink…I ate 7. Eater’s discretion advised.
