Surprisingly really good! Crush the tortilla chips with a rolling pin or pan before you heat the oil. Use white flour if you don't have whole wheat flour.

Recipe Ingredients for Tortilla Chip-Crusted Chicken Strips

1/2 lb chicken breast, thinly sliced
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup wheat flour
8 oz tortilla chips, crushed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Tortilla Chip-Crusted Chicken Strips

  1. Slice chicken breasts into thin 'tender-like' pieces. (They will cook faster)

  2. In one small bowl, combine the egg white and the water. Whisk.

  3. In another bowl, place the flour with a little ground pepper mixed in.

  4. In a third bowl or cutting board, place crushed tortilla chips.

  5. Dip chicken 'tenders' one at a time, first in flour, then in egg-water mixture and finally coat with the tortilla chips.

  6. Fry in a hot skillet with the olive oil until golden brown. Keep warm on a cookie sheet in the oven set at 200.

  7. Serve with salsa or chopped and over a salad.
