Crunchy Ranch Tortilla Chicken


Preheat oven to 450*. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp dressing mix evenly over chicken.

Whisk together buttermilk, egg, and remaining dressing mix. Place flour and crushed tortilla chips in separate shallow dishes. Dredge chicken tenders in flour; dip in buttermilk mixture, and roll in crushed chips. Coat chicken lightly on all sides with cooking spray. Set aside.

Place a large baking sheet in 450* oven for 5 minutes. Place chicken on hot pan. Bake 18 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned.

Leftovers are fabulous cold in a wrap!

I used Cool Ranch Doritos.

Can be made ahead and frozen! After cooking, cool completely. Please chicken in a large ziploc freezer bag. Seal and freeze up to 1 month. Preheat oven to 425*. Remove desired amount of chicken from plastic bag, and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425* for 20 minutes or until hot and crispy.
