    sbera007's Note:

    I originally got this idea watching Aaron McCargo on the food network. Of course, his were fried and I am trying to watch my weight. After a few attempts, I have come up with this super easy baked version. I figured out the nutrition facts for four servings, including chips, and it comes out to about 295 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving (approximately 2.5 strips).

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup colby-monterey jack cheese (shredded)
    • 1 cup corn chips, blue (crushed)
    • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning (I use Penzey's Bold Taco Seasoning)
    • 1/4 cup egg substitute
    • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (I use Cholula)
    • 1 lb chicken breast tenders (or cut up boneless skinless chicken breasts)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. 2
      In a food processor, combine cheese, crushed corn chips and taco seasoning.
    3. 3
      Place in a shallow dish (a pie pan works nicely).
    4. 4
      In another shallow dish, combine egg substitute and hot sauce.
    5. 5
      One at a time, dip chicken strips in egg substitute mix; completely coat the chicken strip.
    6. 6
      Completely coat in corn chip mixture.
    7. 7
      Place strips in a 9x13 pan coated with non-stick spray.
    8. 8
      Once all chicken strips are coated and in the pan, spray with more non-stick spray (I use canola oil).
    9. 9
      Bake strips for about 30 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle.

      This recipe made some crisp and flavorful chicken tenders! I used regular corn chips and Amazing Taco Seasoning. The cheese added great flavor to this. Thanks for posting your recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2010
