Recipe: Baked Tortilla Chip Chicken Strips

 Baked Tortilla Chip Chicken Strips

1 egg
1/4 cup hot wing sauce
1 to 1.25 pounds chicken strips
2 cups crushed tortilla chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In small bowl, combine egg and hot wing sauce. Mix well. Dip chicken strips in egg mixture, dredge in crushed tortilla chips, place on lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.

The view out my front door.

There is snow on the Rocky Mountains, so that means it is time to start baking.  I don't bake much in the summer time.  Heating up the kitchen when it is hot outside just doesn't appeal to me, but as soon as it cools off, the oven turns on.  There is nothing like a warm kitchen, full of delicious aromas on a cold day.

This recipe, is a great way to use up the bottom of the bag crushed tortilla chips, that no one in the family will eat.  The chicken is juicy and crunchy, with just a slight tang from the hot wing sauce.  It is one of the quick and easy recipes I have included in my new cookbook, Busy Woman's 3 & 4 Ingredient Cookbook, that will be published next summer.

    We have snow on our mountains too! just can't see them from my window! But I can on my walk !

  5. I've made something very similar to this before..the chicken really does come out almost as if it was fried!
    What a beautiful view of the Rockies!!

  6. Oh no! That dirty 4-letter word, SNOW!!! That is a gorgeous view out your front door Linda, but please keep the snow out your way!

    Love those chicken strips and it's a perfect way to use up those tortilla chip crumbs. Wish I had thought of that, nothing wasted! Great recipe!!!

  8. Thanks Jane!

    Rita, I think you will like them. They are nice and crunchy!

    Rosemary, it is a great view!

    Diane, you could replace the hot wing sauce with a couple of drops of Tabasco.

    JeriLyn, you and Dan will have to come down sometime and see the view for yourself. It would be a lot of fun if you did!

    Jenn, they are addictive. My husband doesn't miss them being fried.

    Pam, congratulations on your one year blog anniversary! I hope the snow stays away from you guys for awhile.

    Jacob and Angie, I think you would love them!

  9. This is a great way to use up those crumbs. I like adding the hot sauce into the egg dip.

  10. nice to see your part of the world!!

  11. This is much easier than frying chicken. I would love to live with the view of the mountains

  12. That's a unique way to make chicken strips and a GREAT way to use up all the crushed chips at the bottom of the bag!

  13. I love the idea of this recipe. I love that you're using something that most people throw away to crust your chicken with. And who doesn't love a crispy chicken strip?

  14. Great idea and recipe! Thanks for sharing! Beautiful view, too, but you can keep the snow! lol
