"We really love this recipe. I've made a Nacho chicken casserole for years but my boys weren't as excited about it as I was as a kid. This recipe updated my nacho chicken into something my boys love!"

"This has become my husband's new favorite meal! So good and so easy. A tip to make this quicker with less cleanup is to crush the chips in a large zip bag. Once you have all of the chicken pieces coated with egg, toss them all in the bag, seal and then shake to coat the chicken in the chips. I also add a little bit of ranch dressing to the egg mixture and we drizzle the finished product with ranch. YUMMY!"
