Servings 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup salsa
  • ¾ cup shredded cheddar-Jack cheese blend
  • ½ cup coarsely crushed flavored tortilla chips (like Nacho Cheese Doritos)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon oil, chili powder, salt and pepper. Add the chicken and turn to coat the chicken evenly.
  • In a large, oven-proof skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken on both sides and remove the skillet from heat. Pour the salsa all over the chicken and sprinkle with the cheese and chips.
  • Place the skillet in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink and the cheese is bubbly and golden.
