Redneck Dorito Chicken Recipe
What is Redneck Chicken?
I am crazy about saving food; I can’t stand wasting it. This is why I come up with different ways to spice up meals using leftovers, like the pieces that are always left on the bottom of a bag of chips. Somehow it seems like half the bag is barely touched so I decided that these expensive bags of food need to be used somehow. My husband right away decided to call it redneck dorito chicken, which fits because it tastes so good and yet is so easy.
What I like about this recipe is that I can change it around to make it have a new taste each time, even though I am known to do stupid things that might ruin a recipe while I experiment sometimes it comes out really good. So if you want to use a different kind of chips go ahead and try it, just change the marinade to give it an all around tasty blend of spices.
I made this with an easy side dish of spicy rice.
- 2 cups Cool Ranch Dorito crumbs, make into crumbs by pounding the bag or putting in a food processor
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1 tbs. milk
- 1 pound chicken, tenders or breasts cut up depending on preference
- marinade, depends on preference
- salt, pepper, garlic
- 1 tbsp. oil, butter, or margarine
- Marinate chicken in desired marinade (BBQ and Italian dressing work well) for at least 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 F
- Whisk egg, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic together in small bowl. Set aside. Mix the chips and bread crumbs together in medium size bowl. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture a few at a time, gently shake off excess, and then put them in chips mixture. You can use a fork to flip the chicken and cover with them with crumbs, or you can cover the bowl and shake. Use fork to set aside covered pieces until they are all coated. For a little extra crisp, do this twice.
- Cover baking sheet with oil then spread out chicken onto the pan. Bake for 7 minutes, flip the chicken and cook another 7 minutes.
- Place chicken on paper towel to remove any grease and cool for five minutes then enjoy!
