Doritos Chicken Fingers

It’s the fourth day of our anniversary and mash up week and still we have not posted anything savoury, all of our mash ups during the past days were desserts but that is going to change today as we will be using Doritos as our mash up partner.

Today we will be making some baked chicken fingers, commonly we use bread crumbs to coat it and make it crispy but have you ever thought of using your favourite corn chips as a replacement? Whether it’s Doritos, Fritos, Chippy or Granny Goose it does not matter as long as you choose your favourite one, what’s important is you are having two excellent food items in one bite, your favourite corn chips and chicken fingers.

So if you will be making this what corn chips are you going to use?
