Easy Doritos Chicken Tenders
If these easy Doritos Chicken Tenders don’t have your children eating their dinner, I don’t know what will! This is a crazy easy recipe that you can make for dinner or lunch in a matter of minutes. Besides, you likely already have all of the ingredients in your kitchen already!
Easy Doritos Chicken Tenders Recipe
1 large bag of Doritos (I used Nacho Cheese, but you can use any flavor)
2 small trays chicken breast tenders or breast cut into strips
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Pour your Doritos into gallon size resealable bag (like Ziploc or Hefty) and use a rolling pin to crush the large chips into small bits. The amount of chips needed for the recipe will depend on how many chicken strips you intend to make, so you’ll have to gauge that amount at the time, but the ingredients above should give you a good guide to start with. When the chips are small enough, pour them into a shallow dish.
Use a rubber spatula or silicone basting brush to cover each chicken tender in mayonnaise, then press both sides into the crushed Doritos. Once coated, place your chicken strips on an ungreased baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes.
