Spicy Chicken Sandwiches with Cilantro-Lime Mayo

How about these crispy chicken sandwiches for dinner? What makes them special is the tortilla chip crust. If you want more spice to these, I suggest doubling the hot sauce, because even my kids never knew these were supposed to be spicy, but I did use less in my recipe (and I used Cholula hot sauce). These cooked up perfectly juicy inside and were pretty darn good! I used large boneless breasts, filet in half so we had lots, more than what this calls for, and I even had to cut each patty in half to fit on the bun. I also added a little cheese on ours. The mayo was great with these too!

Spicy Chicken Sandwiches with Cilantro-Lime Mayo
from Cooking Light Dec. '08


1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 cup egg substitute
3 tablespoons hot sauce (I used 1 1/2 TBL)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 1/2 ounces baked tortilla chips (about 6 cups)
2 tablespoons olive oil

Remaining ingredients:
4 (2-ounce) Kaiser rolls, split
12 (1/8-inch-thick) red onion slices
4 lettuce leaves
1. To prepare mayo, combine the first 4 ingredients.
2. To prepare chicken, combine egg substitute, hot sauce, oregano, and salt in a large zip-top plastic bag. Cut chicken breast halves in half horizontally to form 4 cutlets. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours or up to 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.
3. Place tortilla chips in a food processor; process 1 minute or until ground. Place ground chips in a shallow dish.
4. Working with one cutlet at a time, remove chicken from marinade, allowing excess to drip off. Coat chicken completely in chips. Set aside. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken and chips.
5. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned and done. Spread mayo evenly over cut sides of rolls. Layer bottom half of each roll with 3 onion slices, 1 lettuce leaf, and 1 chicken cutlet; top with top halves of rolls.
