The inspiration for this dish came about a few months ago. My buddy Wiz is a health nut. Some of you old-school-Hip-Hop heads may remember him from back in the day when he was the DJ for Kid n Play. He refuses to eat anything other then white meat. Chicken and turkey to him is as far as he goes when it comes to trying anything new.
One day while I was on the phone with him he was eating and talking at the same time. I really wasnt offended we all have to mulit-task now and then. So as the crunching got louder, I had to ask, "What are you eating?" I really wasnt ready for this answerhe replied, "Doritos." I was like "for real?" Wiz is a gym rat as well. He must have stock in Bally's by now. Thats to tell you how much he is in Ballys. I was joking when I told him that "the only way I thought you would eat Doritos is if it was hidden in a chicken beast." He laugh but then it hit us that may not be such a bad idea.


Olive oil 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Garlic 8 Clove (40 gm) , thinly sliced or minced
Sour orange juice/Lime juice or equal portions orange juice and lime juice 2/3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Ground cumin 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Freshly ground black pepper To Taste


Like most of my cooking I see something and I have to put the Oliver twist on it. Here is my Mojo for three chicken breast.

Juice of half of lime

1/8 Cup of OJ.

1/4 Teaspoon of Chili Powder.

1 Clove of Garlic.

2 Tablespoons of Rice Wine Vinegar.

Small Pinch of Cilantro

2 Tablespoons of Tequila

Season Salt to Taste.

Allow the Mojo to marinate for 1-4 hours. While that’s doing its thing, run the Doritos though the food processor. It took about three cups to do three large chicken breasts. After the marinating period:

• Preheat the oven at 350º.

• Beat an egg.

• Dip the chicken into the beaten egg then the ground Doritos.

• Place the breaded chicken into a greased oven-proof dish.

• Bake for 45 minutes or until done.

• Garnish with chopped tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and a cilantro sprig.
