Tender and moist chicken tenders dipped in crunchy cheesy Doritos.
Do you have a bag of Doritos staring you down in your pantry? If you aren’t sure what to do with those Doritos, then I have the perfect recipe for you. Introducing Doritos Chicken. This is one recipe you won’t get any complaints about. Plus, it wins an award for being the easiest chicken recipe to ever make! You can come right home and make this recipe. I bet you have most of the ingredients at home already. Let’s get started on making this, shall we?
I think in a world where everyone is trying to make fancy meals for their families, it’s time to take a step back. Not everyone has time to make a fancy meal from scratch every single night. However, let’s talk about this meal for a second. First of all, your kids are going to love it. You can finally have one night where you don’t need to hear the kids complain about dinner.
You can serve this meal and everyone will be happy. You don’t have to use this particular bag of Doritos, in fact, you can play with the flavor as much as you’d like! Want something spicier? You’ve got it!
Are Doritos Healthy?
I mean, if you need me to tell you that they are healthy, so you can enjoy this meal in peace, I can tell you that. However, Doritos aren’t the healthiest ingredient out there. BUT – they are tasty, and that’s what matters. Sometimes you just need to have a night where you’re not worried about what you’re eating.
Can You Freeze Doritos Chicken?
I wouldn’t freeze this chicken with the Doritos on it because it won’t be crunchy. One of the major points of this recipe is that it’s crunchy and yummy. You’ll lose that if you freeze it. You can feel free to freeze the chicken and add the eggs and Doritos later.
How to Store Chicken Made with Doritos
If you desire to have leftovers with this chicken, keep in mind you’ll need to eat it in 1-2 days. The Doritos may become a bit soggy after they have been baked. This recipe is best enjoyed right after it’s made. Make sure you put this chicken in an airtight container so that you can enjoy it later. You can also put these in meal prep containers for the week. This meal is excellent for eating on throughout the week and enjoying it!
What Does Doritos Chicken Go Well With?
The great thing about this chicken is that it goes with so many other sides. These Loaded Smashed Potatoes would go awesome with this chicken. Oh, and what about this Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad? The possibilities are endless! You can make a regular salad, roast some veggies, and even do a fruit salad.
The next time you’re craving something a little different, give this Doritos Chicken a try. I know you’ll love the flavor and everything you can make to go with it. Plus, the kids not complaining about dinner for a night is most welcome.
