  • Beat egg, water, and cayenne pepper together in a shallow bowl. Mix nacho cheese-flavored chips, bread crumbs, and black pepper together in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken into egg mixture until coated; transfer to chip mixture and press to fully cover on both sides. Place coated chicken on the wire rack.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Baked this early this morning and then put one humongous chicken breast in the fridge to chill for a luncheon salad. Not only was this tasty its EASY and 'll be using this often for summer evening main course salads this year. I didn t have any whole wheat bread crumbs so I sub d panko which worked well and cooked the chicken to 165 so it was perfectly cooked tender and moist. Read More

I added some spicy flour to the Doritos and crumb mix. I read that some people said their was a bit dry, so I took it out of the oven after 10 minutes and wrapped in foil and then continued cooking. It was nice and tender. Will make again. Read More

It came out nice and crispy just like fried chicken. It also had a cheesy undertone. I used regular doritos because I didn't have spicy. I seasoned the chicken with light black pepper and seasoned salt before i dipped it in the eggs. Read More

I cooked it with a convection oven at 30minutes edges of breast were a bit dry. Breasts were avg size not too thick not too thin. ALSO I USED CHILI POWDER BECAUSE I didn't have cayenne. I will make it again but will add more spice as it wasn't spicy enough. Read More
