*Tortilla Crusted Chicken Breasts*(Diabetic Recipe)

Hello everyone! I hope all is well. I made this recipe last night. It was so good. The spices blended with the chips are excellent. I used strips of chicken breasts instead of breast halves. Easier to dip in the sauce. Oh, make sure the chips are crushed very fine or they don't stick to the egg and chicken very well. Enjoy!

*Tortilla Crusted Chicken Breasts*

Servings: 4

1 Cup Tortilla Chips, Finely Crushed
½ Tsp. Oregano, Ground
½ Tsp. Cumin, Ground
¼ Tsp. Black Pepper
1 Egg
4 Chicken Breast Halves, Boneless, Skinless

Preheat oven at 375°F.
Coat a baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a pie pan combine tortilla chips, oregano, cumin, and pepper.

In another pie pan beat egg lightly with a fork. Dip chicken in egg, then coat with tortilla chip mixture. Place chicken in prepared baking pan. Bake in preheated oven at 375°F. for 25 minutes or until slightly browned. Serve the chicken with salsa or dip of your choice.
