Crispy Nacho Chicken

¾ large bag Nacho Cheese Doritos Chips (save that ¼ of a bag for yourself!)

10-12 chicken legs or thighs 

1 cup mayo

1 tbsp SMAK DAB Beer Chipotle Mustard 

1 tbsp chili powder

½ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp onion powder

¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

¼ tsp dried oregano

½ tsp paprika

1½ tsp. cumin

¼ tsp kosher salt

¼ tsp black pepper 

(Omit all the spices above and just use a taco seasoning packet. But don’t forget to add the mustard!)

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment. 

Carefully crush the Doritos in the bag until they are fine to small crumbs. Pour the chip crumbs into a 9x13” baking dish.

In a medium bowl, add mayo, mustard, and remaining spices. Using one hand, roll each piece of chicken in the mayo mixture until coated and drop into the chip crumbs. Using the other hand, toss the chicken in the crumbs until evenly coated. Place on the baking sheet. 

Bake the chicken for 30-45 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the chips are golden brown and crispy.
