Hot Cheetos Chicken Breast Strips

Take your chicken to the next level with this easy 4 ingredient Cheetos Chicken meal prep recipe! If you’re not a fan of Cheetos or want a “healthier” option, don’t worry…this recipe works with almost EVERY chip!

• 3 Servings Hot Cheetos (or Other Alternative)
• 1/2 Cup Fat Free/Reduced Fat Ranch Dressing
• 1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
• 1 1/2 Pounds (24 Ounces) Chicken Breast

Crush up your Cheetos (throwing them in a plastic bag and using a rolling pin makes this super easy)
2. Mix together your Ranch & Parmesan
3. Cut up your Chicken Breast into strips or nuggets
4. Take out a baking pan plus rack (a rack will prevent your strips or nuggets from getting soggy on the bottom)
5. Coat your rack with some non-stick cooking spray
6. Dunk each piece into your Ranch mix and then into your Cheetos mix
7. Bake on 350F/176C for 30-35 minutes

Tip: Reheat them in the microwave wrapped in a paper towel to help keep the crispiness.
