Chicken Monterey

This is an amazingly fattening and unhealthy and delicious chicken recipe from my yout'. I think I got this recipe about 40 years ago from my mom, who got it from a magazine, I think. I haven't had it in years, but I remember it as wonderful. Without any more ado:

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
one 1.25 oz taco seasoning mix envelope
4 pounds of chicken (about 16 thighs)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup crushed Doritos (I don't know if they had the flavored kinds back then. Experiment!)
2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. cooking oil
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
one 13 oz can evaporated milk (NOT sweetened condensed milk!)
1/4 tsp bottled hot pepper sauce
1 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded (4 oz)
1/4 cup pitted sliced black olives
1 tsp lemon juice

Combine flour and taco seasoning in bag. Add chicken, a couple of pieces at a time, and coat.

Melt butter in 15 X 10 X 1 inch baking pan. Place chicken in pan, and turn to distribute butter. Roll chicken in crushed chips, and return to pan. Bake at 375oF for 45 - 50 minutes. (NB: This seems like a long time; maybe check for doneness before this.)

Meanwhile, cook onion 'til tender, but not brown. Blend in 2 Tbsp. flour and salt. Add evaporated milk and hot sauce all at once. Cook and stir until sauce thickens and bubbles.

Add cheese, olives and lemon juice, stirring 'til cheese melts.

Serve chicken with sauce in sauce boat.
