Baked Taco Chicken Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 4 pounds each), cut up


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, taco seasoning and salt. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs and milk. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then place in bag and shake to coat.
  • 2. Place bone side down in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until juices run clear. Yield: 12 servings.

"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 :)"
