Dinner tonight was so good! It was just plain awesome. I've had this idea for a while now and I finally got around to making it. Now I have to admit, Nate made the chicken tonight. I told him what I wanted and he did an amazing job. We'll definitely be having this again and again. We ate this chicken over salad with pico de gallo, tortilla strips, shredded cheese, and olive (on mine at least). Next time I think we'll add some corn and black beans. Enjoy!
2 chicken breasts
1 cup flour
1 cup crushed tortilla chips (not powder fine, but small enough pieces to stick)
2 tsp. chile powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Combine all the seasonings in a tupperware dish. You'll definitely want to save the leftover seasoning, it is so so good on chicken! Put flour in one bowl, whisk the egg in another, and put the crushed tortilla chips in another bowl. Add some of the seasoning to each of the bowls, you want every layer to be flavorful (this is why the tortilla chips are . Sprinkle a tiny amount of seasoning directly on chicken. First coat chicken in a light layer of flour, then dip in egg, then coat in crushed tortilla chips. Place chicken on a prepared baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 32-35 minutes or until cooked through. Let rest for 5 minutes and then serve. I recommend slicing and serving on a salad, so good!
