Main Dish

South of the Border Dorito Crusted Chicken

South of the Border Dorito crusted chicken

1 Cup of Mexican rice ( I use the Olde El pasos Mexican rice in the 60 second pouch)
1 1/2 Cups crushed doritos
1 small clove of garlic minced
2/3 cups classic Cacique Queso Fresco cheese (this is found at wallmart in the back with the cream cheese)
1/8 cup mild green chilies enchilada sauce
1 cup South west Ranch dressing ( I use kraft taco bell brand)
3 boneless skinless chicken breast butterflied

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees
cook rice according to package. In a medium bowl add rice, minced garlic, Cacique Queso Fresco cheese, & green chilies sauce. mix well. Then to butterflie your chicken lay the chicken breast down flat on a cutting board, place one hand on top of the chicken breast and the other hand using a knife slice through the chicken breast until almost completely through then take knife out and open the chicken flat. Divide the rice mixture in 3 even sections (one for each chicken breast) then with chicken breast laying flat spread rice mixture evenly on one side of the chicken breast close the chicken breast. Next using your hands lather each chicken breast in the south west dressing and dip in crushed doritos. Next pour some of the left over green chilies sauce in the bottom of a 2 qt baking dish. only enough to coat the bottom.. a couple tablespoons should do. Place chicken breasts in the baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 40-50 minutes until chicken is done. serve with sour cream and salsa! Enjoy!
