Recipe Tips

  • I recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure that the chicken is fully cooked when you remove it from the oven. The internal temperature of the chicken should be above 75°C (165°F).
  • For a thicker crust, you can double coat the chicken. Be careful when cooking the chicken as it will take longer, and the crust may start to burn before the chicken is fully cooked.
  • Feel free to swap the chicken breast for chicken thigh instead. The result will still be incredibly delicious.
  • You can use any flavored Dorito that you want. I love the supreme cheese, but any flavor will work nicely.
  • Lightly spraying the chicken with oil will help crisp the crumb and keep the chicken moist.
  • You can add some extra seasoning into the flour mixture. For example, taco seasoning can be added for even more flavor.
