Baked Tortilla Chicken-and a Better Chip review! #TBCInsiders

Baked Tortilla Chicken-and a Better Chip review! #TBCInsiders
By now, you probably know I tend to prefer natural, real, fresh food. Which is why I was SO excited to sample and develop a recipe using  The Better Chip! The Better Chip is essentially a tortilla chip that uses farm-fresh ingredients for a real, simple, great taste. The Better Chip is also naturally gluten-free, vegan friendly, and verified non-GMO!

AND there are currently 5 varieties of The Better Chip! Classic corn chips, for purists like myself, Chipotles and JalapeƱo will give your snack some kick, while the Beet and Spinach & Kale varieties put your veggies in your chips! My faves are probably the corn chips and the beet (surprisingly, because I don't really like beets!) so I used those 2 to create a simple and delicious tortilla crusted baked chicken recipe (but you could use any of the chip flavors!) Match made in heavennnn!

This recipe is crazy customizeable! You want some spicy chicken? Use the jalapeno and/or chipotle chips and maybe throw some chili powder in there too! Interested in getting your veggie on? Use the beet and spinach/kale varieties! And don't even get me started on the ways you can use your finished chicken/what sauces you could serve it with! I know I was horribly negligent by not making a sauce to go with the chicken but...well...I just didn't have the time or ingredients. I'm sorry guys...forgive me? Learn from my mistakes! Get some sauce with yo chicken!

Baked Tortilla Chicken-and a Better Chip review! #TBCInsiders
Makes 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts-pounded until somewhat flattened
  • 1 cup (or about 4 oz) crushed The Better Chip tortilla chips (I used half corn and half beet)
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Seasonings, to taste (I used a dash of garlic powder, paprika, and seasoning salt)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a shallow dish/bowl combine the crushed tortilla chips (I used a food processor to get a fine crumb) with the cornmeal, cheese, and seasonings. Beat the egg in a separate bowl/dish.
  • Dip each flattened chicken breast in the egg and then coat in the crumbs. Place on the prepared wire rack.
  • Once all the chicken is breaded and on the wire rack, spray with non-stick cooking spray and bake for 13 minutes. Flip over, spray again, and bake for 13 more minutes (or until cooked all the way through).
  • Let cool 10 minutes and then serve! Can be served on their own, with salsa, another sauce, or on a tortilla salad!
