A tangy cream sauce adds oomph to this chicken schnitzel with a Cool Ranch® twist.  



Step 1
Schnitzel: In food processor, pulse Doritos® Cool Ranch® Flavored Tortilla Chips.

Step 2
In shallow bowl, whisk together flour, salt and pepper.

Step 3
In another shallow bowl, whisk eggs.

Step 4
Place chicken cutlets between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; using meat mallet, pound chicken to 1/4-inch thickness.

Step 5
Dredge chicken in seasoned flour, dip in eggs and roll in ground chips until well coated. Arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.

Step 6
Into large skillet set over medium heat, add enough oil to reach 1/4 inch up sides. Heat until shimmering or an instant-read thermometer registers 350ºF. Working in batches to avoid crowding, fry breaded chicken, turning once, for 4 minutes or until golden brown all over. Transfer to paper towel–lined baking sheet to drain. Cover to keep warm.

Step 7
Mustard Cream Sauce: Meanwhile, in medium skillet set over medium heat, melt better. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant. Sprinkle with flour. Cook, whisking frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked and smooth.

Step 8
Slowly whisk in chicken broth and cream. Continue to whisk and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in mustard, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes or until thickened and flavors are married. Stir in chives.

Step 9
Serve schnitzel with mustard cream sauce.
