HOW TO MAKE DORITO-CRUSTED POPCORN CHICKEN

You only need the following three ingredients to make this popcorn chicken:

  • Chicken breasts – recommend boneless skinless
  • Doritos: 2 large bags
  • Mayonnaise: regular or low-fat will work

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Some great options are ranch, chipotle, salsa or guac, but use whatever you have on hand.

While there’s no special equipment required, a nonstick baking mat and parchment paper come in handy. Otherwise, you should plan on greasing a baking sheet to avoid sticking.

WHICH FLAVOR OF DORITOS SHOULD I USE?

Some of you have asked which flavor of Doritos to use. We’ve made this recipe successfully with Nacho Cheese Doritos, Cool Ranch and Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos (for a kick!). You should be able to substitute in any other flavors as well.
