One of our favourite fast-food choices used to be the crispy-coated spicy chicken burger. Our version has it all, and you will love how we get the crunchy coating! Irresistible and lower in calories, this burger is just like the real thing and so simple to make. You can also change the spice mix to suit your taste, so if you prefer some extra ‘zing’ then add a little more chilli powder.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

We like to serve this with our Quick Ketchup on the side

We used panko breadcrumbs instead of tortilla chips. It was delicious 😋
Delicious Low Calorie Lunch!
Make sure you dry the chicken thoroughly.
One of our favourite fakeaways
Super easy to make and simply delicious. A firm favourite in our house. This time I made it into strips rather than a whole breast but kept the ingredients the same.
Delicious and so easy to make
I had to swap out the Chilli Doritos for Tangy Cheese and leave out the Chilli Powder so my son would eat it but it was still yummy
Tasted great, used a few extra doritos as we had salad with it, and the calories are low.
Little less Zing
I'm not a great fan of of too much zing so I use a cool tortilla chip with just a couple of spicy ones!
Wow! So tasty... a favourite for all the family
Make sure Doritos as quite finely crushed as they go further, and that the chicken is dry. Put a rack on top of the baking tray so the chicken doesn't go soggy underneath.
So simple and easy to make. A quick and very tasty meal. Made this many times now with different accompliments. I cook 2 and freeze 2 for a later date.
