While this recipe looks complicated it is really rather easy, and produces chicken that is highly flavorful. I did use reduced fat cheese, turkey bacon and egg substitute with good success. The pepper sauce is delicious and a perfect compliment to the chicken. Thank you Riffraff for sharing the recipe.
This was fairly quick to make, fairly easy to make, was attracive to present and tasted great. I particularly liked using the corn chips as the breading. I didn't overly grind them up because having the larger pieces of corn chip to bite into was nice.
All I can say is WOW!!!!! So many sophisticated flavors going on. I can't wait to make it again. Thanks!
