Kettle Chip Chicken

Its not dorito its da kettle chip.

I have that catchy frozen pizza commercial on the brain – Its not delivery its digorno. I think it was the last thing I saw on TV before writing in my blog about my dinner. Forgive me. I’ve been tv-washed.

The dorito chicken recipe has been in my must-make list for a while now but we rarely have chips in our house unless its tortilla chips and I am not allowed to use those to make anything but chicken nachos per my husband’s rules. LOL. But in a moment of chip weakness during my last grocery shopping excursion I picked up a bag of my favorite chips – kettle chips. Since I had those on hand I decided to see if substituting a different chip would give me good results.

Voila! The kettle chip chicken is born. And healthier than dorito? Yup! by about 70 cals! Its not that much but its something!

(Recipe adapted from Realistic-Eats | photos from me!)

Husband rating: A+
He really liked this chicken recipe. He ate his and 1/4 of mine and said between bites “this goes in the rotation”. haha

Wifey rating: A/A+
This was very tasty esp with some 0 calorie dijon mustard for a little kick.

    I LOVE this. You can totally change it up by changing the flavor of the chips you use. Thanks for sharing!

    Yum. I just made this, and my sweet DH and I really enjoyed it. I loved your idea of a Dijon dipping sauce, but was kind of lazy. I subbed 1 tablespoon of Dijon instead of water with the egg, and it worked really well. Sweet Maui onion kettle chips were on sale, so that’s what I used, and it was a hit. Thank you so much for this wonderful meal. I love baking the chicken instead of having to saute it. My hubby said I could make this any day of the week – high praise from him!
