a batch of this lip-smacking chicken will spice up your next supper. The mildly seasoned chicken pieces could be pan-fried or deep-fried, but we like oven baking the best because it cuts down on fat.

"This was super good I halved the recipe and used 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and used it like shake and bake. I didn't dredge in milk and egg I just shook my chicken legs in 1 pkg taco seasoning and 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs - it turned out awesome! Thanks for the inspiration :)"
