"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
1 lb chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs
1/3 cup flour
2 cups crushed tortilla chips (your favorite flavor)
Avocado diced
1 cup Monterey jack or sharp cheddar cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pound out chicken until it is about 1/4 inch thick, or cut thick breasts in half. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Whisk egg in a shallow bowl. Place flour and any other desired seasonings in another shallow bowl. The crushed tortilla chips should be in a third bowl. Dip your chicken in the flour mixture. Dip in egg mixture and then coat with crushed tortilla chips.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until the center reaches 165 degrees.
Remove from oven and top chicken with diced avocado and cheese. Return to oven until cheese is melted, about five minutes.

You can add rinsed and drained canned black beans along with the avocado. I served this Santa Fe Chicken with a side of black beans and rice, so I skipped topping it with the beans this time. Serve with your favorite side.
