1/3 bag of tortilla chips crushed
1/2 cup shredded cheese
mix taco seasonings and mayo. Slather chicken in it and then roll in chips. Place on foil lined cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Put cheese on top and cook an additional 5-10 minutes. I serve this with Spanish rice and mixed veggies or a salad. Easy and yummy.

different flavor.
