Crunchy Taco Chicken

I tweaked another recipe and came up with this one. We had it for dinner last night. I don't measure out the ingredients; you don't need to for this recipe.

Crunchy Taco Chicken

Boneless chicken breasts
Taco sauce
Taco seasoning (or I use Pampered Chef Southwest Seasoning)
Grated cheddar cheese
Handful of tortilla chips, crushed

Preheat oven to 400º. Slice chicken breasts length-wise so they're thin. Put in a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Spoon taco sauce over chicken; sprinkle with taco seasoning. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until almost done.

Sprinkle chicken with grated cheese, then top with crushed tortilla chips. Bake for 2-3 more minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken reaches 180º.

Why I love it? It has all the flavors of a taco, but on a piece of chicken. (Good if you're trying to eat low-carb) It tastes delicious, and is quick to make- about 1/2 an hour start to finish! That's why I cut the chicken in half- it cooks quicker, and it lets you get more topping to chicken ratio! :)
