The best part about homemade chicken strips is that they’re one of the easiest snacks you can possibly make, and aside from maybe undercooking them and giving you and your entire family salmonella poisoning there’s really no possibly way to screw them up!

          Thanks for taking the time, 6 years later, to let everyone know that you know that this chain is ridiculous. (Albeit, a bit humorous).

      I’m pretty partial to ranch dressing.

    I made this last night and the doritos lost all their flavor, any tips?

    • Nick

      The only thing I can really suggest is to dip each one in the egg and then the crushed up Doritos a few times, just to make sure that the Doritos are really clumped on there. More Doritos = More flavor.

    I’m making these tonight with Jalapeño Cheddar Doritos! Hope they rock!

    Just tried this tonight but I have a few questions. I don’t normally cook (usually its something simple that only involves frying) but is there a trick to baking juicy chicken? Mine came out a bit dry. And second, I couldn’t really taste the doritos flavor. I turned the doritos into pretty much powder and coated the chicken enough but the flavor didn’t really pop, any advice? If you answer thanks in advance!

      You could always marinate it to make it more juicy. As far as not being able to taste the Doritos very much you could either just not crush them up into such a fine powder or just do a couple coats of Doritos on the chicken strips.

      you need a meat thermometer you probably over cooked them.

    I brined the chicken for 3 hours. Also, I added taco seasoning to the flour mixture. This helped bring out the Nacho taste. My family loved them.

    Can u deep fat fry the chicken goujons instead of baking in the oven

    • Nick

      March 23, 2019 at 11:40 am (5 years ago)

      Yeah, you could definitely deep fry them!

    I believe that they taste better fried. Thay had more flavor and didn’t loose the taste.

    Also don’t crush the Doritos into such a fine powder.

    This was good. I added a pouch of taco seasoning to the crushed doritos and it helped add more flavor. I also fried them in a little bit of oil on the stove top. They came out very juicy and crispy. I’ve seen in the past where some people have marinated the chicken in salsa before breading with the doritos.

    This was great. My 10 year old son asked me to make a meal like this for him so I searched for a recipe that I could use as a reference. I came across this one and it was a go. I made some in the oven and I pan fried some and it came out great. They were both tasty, juicy, and tender and everyone loved it. I will be making this dish again for sure. Thanks for this easy recipe.
