In this step-by-step tutorial, we'll show you how to make these crunchy and delicious chicken strips with just a few simple ingredients. The combination of tender chicken and the bold flavor of Doritos creates a dish that's sure to satisfy your cravings. So grab some Doritos and let's get started!
Add the flour to a bowl or container and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and pepper flakes. Mix until well combined.
Add the eggs and milk to a second container. Using a fork, mix until frothy and well combined.
Place the Doritos in a food processor and pulse until broken up. If you don't have a food processor, put them in a bag and pound them. Place the Doritos in a third container.
Dredge the chicken in the flour until completely covered. Then, in the egg mixture until well coated. Lastly in the Doritos. Also make sure they are covered well. Set them aside on a baking tray.
Place in a 375 degree F or 190 C preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Garnish with green onions, serve, and enjoy your Doritos coated chicken strips.

As stated, use boneless chicken breasts or thighs for this recipe, and make sure to cut them into evenly sized strips so they cook evenly.
Crush the Doritos into small pieces, but not so small that they become powdery. The larger pieces will give the chicken strips a nice, crunchy texture.
You can use any flavor of Doritos you like for this recipe, but the nacho cheese or cool ranch flavors work particularly well.
To make the chicken strips extra crispy, you can use a double-coating method. Dip each chicken strip in the egg mixture, then coat it in the crushed Doritos. Dip it in the egg mixture again, then coat it in the Doritos a second time.
Bake the chicken strips on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. This will allow air to circulate around the chicken strips, ensuring they cook evenly and become crispy on all sides.
Serve the chicken strips with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ranch, BBQ, or hot sauce.
