Ready to eat in 30 minutes! Have a fiesta with a spicy new way to make chicken breasts.
Updated Nov 4, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups nacho cheese tortilla chips (1 3/4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/4 lb)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons taco sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Steps

  • 1
    Place tortilla chips in 1-gallon resealable plastic food-storage bag; crush with rolling pin. Add Bisquick mix to chips; mix well.
  • 2
    Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each chicken breast half to about 1/4-inch thickness. In small shallow dish, mix egg, taco sauce and salt. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then shake in bag to coat with Bisquick mixture.
  • 3
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook chicken in oil 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until juice is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Looking for a little spicier version of Taco Chicken? Use spicy nacho cheese chips and medium taco sauce for the coating.
  • tip 2
    Using a nonstick skillet will work best for cooking this coated chicken. If you don’t have a nonstick skillet, you may need to add about 1 tablespoon more oil halfway through cooking.
  • tip 3
    Serve this crispy chicken alongside Spanish rice, warm flour tortillas or corn muffins and sliced avocados.
