Dorito Crusted Chicken Tenders

Nacho Cheese Doritos are a standard party snack. Delicious, salty and who would have thought, they can act as a pretty solid ingredient! I have never known anyone to do anything differently with Doritos other than put them into a bowl until one of my colleagues, blogger of Winna Winna Chicken Dinner, shared his wife's Dorito Surprise! I was inspired - and one munchy craving with friends lead to the Dorito Crusted Chicken Tenders. With some dips of ranch dressing and guacamole, these tenders were the perfect bar food at home. It's very easy to make and makes me think that Doritos don't have to the only chip having all the fun - how about Baked Lays or Pringles! As with most my recipes, I used fake eggs as a batter for the chicken tenders however you can always use real eggs.

Dorito Crusted Chicken Tenders

Chicken tenders
Fake eggs
Doritos, crushed

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Pour some fake eggs onto a shallow plate. Crush the Doritos into a bowl.
2. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Pat the chicken tenders dry with a paper towel. Soak the tenders on each side in the egg mixture. Then evenly coat the tenders with the crushed Doritos, making sure to try and coat the entire tender.
3. Bake the tenders for 20 minutes, or until the tenders are cooked through.
