Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 6.8oz bag Terra chips (original, sea salt)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cleaned
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Oil
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 cup honey
  • 6 tablespoons hot sauce (I like Frank’s Hot Sauce)
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process the chips into fine crumbs. I recommend processing them in two batches to ensure the crumbs become extra small in size.
  3. Place the crumbs on a large plate. Toss with salt and pepper.
  4. Coat the chicken in the egg, allowing excess egg to drip off. Then coat the chicken in the chip crumbs. Coat both sides, pressing the crumbs on the chicken so they stick well.
  5. Place the coated chicken on the prepared sheet pan and drizzle with oil.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through.
  7. To prepare the sauce, simply mix the honey and hot sauce together until well combined.
  8. Right before serving, generously drizzle some of the sauce over the chicken. Place the leftover sauce in a bowl and serve as well.
*Notes
Make sure all your chicken breasts are even in thickness. If some are thicker than others, simply pound them out until they are all even.

You can also use thin chicken cutlets for this recipe. Simply adjust the cooking time to 20-25 minutes, or until completely cooked through.

When reheating, cover with foil and avoid placing over direct heat. In fact, I recommend leaving it either near (not in) a warm oven or on top of other food on a warming tray. This will allow the chicken to become warm without drying it out or making the chips too soft.
