I grew up with a family that ate healthy meals but we always had treats and snacks in the pantry and I’m not talking organic granola bars with chia seeds and flaxseed.  I’m talking Twinkies and Ding Dongs and Potato Chips and Cheetoes.  And of course, Doritos!

Today, I try to stick with more natural and whole food snack food options for my kids, but I still buy Doritos every so often.  I mean, I’m not a monster😎.  I love how excited they get when I do buy these ‘special treats’ since it’s not around all the time.

Let’s get to it!  Dorito Chicken and Asparagus Rolls…

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR COOKING ‘KIT’

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Prepping meals ahead can make ALL the difference!  So, here are the steps you can do the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal ‘Kit’…

(See the recipe below for more details)

  • Turn your Doritos into crumbs by either placing them in a bag and smashing them with a rolling pin or placing them in a food processor and pulsing them.  Store them in a plastic bag.
  • Prepare the chicken breasts by first opening them with your knife and then pounding them flat with a meat tenderizer or bottom of bowl.  Note, you want to be sure you have full breasts, not pre-sliced thin, as they may not be big enough to roll.  Opening up and pounding out your own ensures they are large enough.

  • Cut the woody ends off the asparagus, but wait to wash them until you are ready to cook.
  • That’s it!  place the Doritos, the Chicken, the Asparagus, plus one unbroken egg on a sheet pan or large bowl in the fridge until the night you are ready to cook.
COOK YOUR MEAL:
  • On the night you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge!
  • Preheat oven to 400, then spray the bottom of a large sheet pan with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Rinse the asparagus and set aside.
  • Lay the chicken breasts out on a flat surface. Season both sides with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Then place 4-5 spears of asparagus on the chicken off to one side as you will be rolling starting from that side.

  • Roll the asparagus up in the chicken and then secure the end with 3-4 toothpicks.
  • Beat an egg in a large bowl (big enough to fit your chicken rolls). In a second large bowl or on a plate, place the crushed Doritos. Take a chicken roll and coat it in the egg.  Shake the excess egg off, then roll it in the Doritos to full coat the chicken (you do not need to coat the asparagus).  Then place the chicken on the oiled sheet pan.

  • Do this for each of the 4 chicken breasts.  Once all are on the sheet pan, spray or brush with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then bake in the 400 degree oven for 15 minutes on the center rack.  Flip the Chicken over and then bake for a second 15 minutes.
  • After a total of 30 minutes in the oven, remove the chicken and let rest for 5 minutes.

Slice for the beautiful presentation and serve over salad or rice or quinoa.  ENJOY!

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Dorito Chips, Cheese Flavor
  • 4 Chicken Breasts note, do not buy thin sliced
  • 1 bunch Asparagus, about 16-20 spears or 16oz
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil, spray or bottle
  • Toothpicks, about 12-16 (3-4 per breast)

Instructions

Prep-Ahead

  1. Turn your Doritos into crumbs by either placing them in a bag and smashing them with a rolling pin or placing them in a food processor and pulsing them.  You are looking for a panko breadcrumb-like size and texture.  Store them in a plastic bag.

  2. Prepare the chicken breasts by first placing a large piece of plastic wrap down on the counter.  Then place your chicken breast on top.  Using a sharp knife, gently slice through the side.  As you slice, pull up the top half so you can see where you need to go and do not slice the top right off.  Do this for all 4 breasts

    Note, you want to be sure you have full breasts, not pre-sliced thin, as they may not be big enough to roll.  Opening up and pounding out your own ensures they are large enough.

  3. Next place another piece of plastic wrap over the top of the chicken breasts.  Using a meat tenderizer or the bottom of a large bowl, gently pound our the chicken breasts to get them even and as flat and thin as possible without pounding through creating holes.  Place the chicken in a large plastic storage bag.

  4. Cut the woody ends off the asparagus, but wait to wash them until you are ready to cook.

  5. That's it!  place the Doritos, the Chicken, the Asparagus, plus one unbroken egg on a sheet pan or large bowl in the fridge until the night you are ready to cook.
