Cheetos Crusted Chicken Tenders
Yeah... I really don't think a description is needed for this one... but just let me tell you- these. were. amazing. I have a million more ideas now since I've made these, and yes HOT CHEETOS is one of them ;) I actually made these a while ago and forgot to post them on the blog. I found the picture today so I IMMEDIATELY got started on this post!
1 lb. chicken tenderloins
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
salt & pepper
1 1/2 - 2 cups crushed Cheetos (I didn't get an accurate measurement when I made these, I actually had to crush more as I was going)
-Preheat oven to 400.
-You will need 3 shallow dishes; In the first one, combine flour, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper. In the second dish, put the beaten eggs, and the third, the crushed Cheetos.
-Season your tenderloins with salt & pepper. Coat each tenderloin in the flour, then the egg, then cover thoroughly in the Cheetos. Repeat with all the tenders and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet.
-Bake for about 20 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
Your life will never be the same.
You're welcome ;)
