Baked Taco Chicken

 Baked Taco Chicken
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.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs

  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, taco seasoning
  • and salt. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs and milk. Dip chicken pieces
