Created by: Natasha Feldman

The zing your crispy chicken sandwich has been missing? Doritos.

Calling all late night chefs: the humble chicken sandwich is getting a well-deserved makeover, with the help of DORITOS® FLAMIN’ HOT® COOL RANCH®.

The amped-up crispy chicken sandwich will hit the late night spot.

Makes two sandwiches.


  • For the slaw:
  • For the chicken sandwiches:


Make the slaw by tossing together the cabbage, scallion, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and salt to taste in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

In a food processor, blitz all the chips until they’re the size and texture of breadcrumbs. You’ll be using these to make an aioli and bread the chicken cutlets.

To make the aioli: Remove all but 2 tablespoons of crushed chips. Then, add mayo and lime juice to the processor. Process until smooth. Add salt to taste.

For the chicken: Add the chicken cutlets in a large plastic bag with flour and a generous pinch of salt, then shake to combine.

Whisk eggs in a medium bowl and put the remaining crushed chips into a second bowl.

Shake off excess flour from the cutlets and dredge them, one at a time, through the eggs and then the crushed chips. Repeat until all the chicken cutlets are breaded.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat with ¼-inch of oil at the bottom.

Add breaded chicken cutlets into the pan and cook until crispy on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

Toast the buns and slather both sides with a generous layer of aioli, followed by the chicken, a drizzle of hot honey, the slaw, and the top bun.
