Cheetos Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by kelycarter_

If you love those cheesy corn snacks that leave your fingers bright orange, then you have to try this recipe! The Nacho Cheese and Flamin' Hot varieties are especially good here. Make sure you use the "crunchy" ones, not the "puffs".

I made this for dinner tonight and This is Great! I left out the parm cheese and the salt and it turned out wonderful. Very moist and I loved the crunch to the breading. My wife is coming home from work late and I ate dinner with out her tonight, and I am having a hard time not eating her piece of chicken! This will be made again in my house.
