Doritos Chicken Strips Recipe

Using crushed Doritos as a breading for chicken strips is a great idea. The Doritos give the chicken strips an excellent flavor and a nice crunch. The strips are baked in the oven so no frying is involved. The process to making this recipe is very easy—the chicken is first dipped in mayonnaise, and then rolled in a mixture of taco seasoning and crushed Doritos chips. If you want to leave the taco seasoning out, that is okay, it should taste fine without it. You can use whatever flavor of Doritos you like for this recipe; I used both Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch. I actually think I preferred the flavor of the Cool Ranch ones a little more. You can serve these with your favorite dipping sauce or they taste great without any at all. Enjoy.
