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!
