Nacho Chicken

I'm still reeling from the weekend of birthday festivities (and so is my house!), but life must go on which means making dinner tonight. The husband talks about this recipe a lot, but it's not something I make very often since it uses Doritos, and we rarely have Doritos in the house. We had them for the boy's party on saturday, so I figured this would be a perfect time to make it since I plan on throwing away the bag of chips after I'm done with dinner tonight. Normally I wouldn't waste food like that, but if I have chips around I'll eat them. And, as today starts my new diet (not so much a diet as back to eating healthy all the time), a Costco-size bag of Doritos will be a major detriment. As will the Costco bag of Ruffles, so I will be bidding those adieu as well.

Anyway, aside from dinner tonight all my meals going forward are going to be healthier than what I've been making over the past, oh, 11 months. I gotta start getting rid of this baby fat. the husband is pleased too...he said he tends to lose more weight when I'm trying to, so we can all be a little slimmer. Well, he and I can...the boy could probably use some fattening up.

Nacho Chicken
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
3/4 cup crushed nacho cheese Doritos (about 30)
1 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted

Combine first three ingredients; spread on both sides of chicken. Dredge chicken in crushed chips. Place chicken on a lightly greased baking sheet or jellyroll pan. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is done.


Pretty trashy, I know, but aren't trashy foods some of the yummiest? Maybe not yummiest, but I like to think of them as guilty pleasures. i still haven't decided what to have with this. We're having glazed carrots because I bought way too many baby carrots for the party on Saturday (we'll probably have them a couple times this week actually), but I don't know what to do for a starch.
