Nacho Cheese Dorito Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

My friend shared this recipe with me, and I was so reluctant because I don't even like Doritos, but she insisted I try it, and my whole family LOVED it. It is moist and has such a great flavor and even smells yummy cooking! Now I make it often. I pound the breast to flatten them and make them cook faster.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put chicken breasts in zip-lock bag and pound to flatten somewhat.
  3. Combine mayonnaise and Italian Seasoning in wide bowl.

  7. Bake uncovered thirty minutes.

Nothing we didn't like about this recipe. I did cut it back to serve 2 people. No issues there. :)

Great Recipe...I would even recommend a higher temperature..maybe ensure the Doritos get nice and crispy! I used Ranch Doritos, yum! I bet the spicy ones or barbeque Doritos would be wonderful! Thanks for a quick recipe :)
