I love to share food/recipes for things I’ve been making for a long time as well as things that are first times for me. Usually I post things that turned out well or at least well enough for a first time. Today I’m sharing Dorito Chicken Tenders which I found multiple posts for on Pinterest. Unfortunately, this was one of those recipes that I’m not sure I’ll make again. It’s not that it tasted bad – it was completely edible and I did eat it. But it didn’t wow me although perhaps if I make it again I would jazz it up some more. In any case, I thought about skipping this food post but I think it’s important to share that not everything goes according to plan at times (or most of the time) so naturally not every Pinterest food post is going to turn out delicious. If they did, there wouldn’t be so many Pinterest fail posts!
So this dish was pretty easy to put together. I put some Doritos into a ziplock bag and crushed with with a rolling pin. Some recipes I found used this method and some used a food processor.
Then I dredged the chicken with egg (with 2 tablespoons of milk), flour, and then the chips and put it on a baking sheet. The recipe I was following didn’t season the chicken, but I did use salt and pepper.
I baked it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until the chicken was cooked.
Overall, the chicken was easy to make and it is pretty cool to think the “breading” on this chicken is Doritos! However, as I said at the start of this post this was not a home run dish. I found it to be a bit bland despite the cheesy Doritos and the salt & pepper that I seasoned the chicken with. If I ever made this again I would have to season it more and/or make some sort of dipping sauce I think.
Have you ever made any chicken dish with chips as your breading?
