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.

    This was delicious; well seasoned, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I would definitely make again.

    This is the best chicken i have ever made. I made it for my grandparents and they loved it. If you double coat it the chicken becomes so crispy and mosit.

    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 :)
