"Great with Mexican rice and fried beans with cheese melted on top, if desired! Sort of 'On-The-Border Southern Fried Chicken'."

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 (1.25 ounce) packages
taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 cups
Beat a couple of eggs in a bowl. After you coat the chicken with flour dip it in the eggs and then back in the flour. This should help hold the crust on better.
This recipe disappointed me. I was having a Mexican Fiesta, and wanted to make fried chicken for those who didn't eat Mexican. I wanted to make a dish that had a Mexican Flare, but this wasn't it. The chicken cooked up very dark, looking like it was burnt. Maybe, you should only use one package of taco seasoning mix. The chicken was very, very bland, and messy. It was too much mess for ordinary tasting chicken. It wasn't worth the trouble. I will not try this again, not in this fashion.
I followed this recipee exactly and found it messy. The coating wouldn't stick and there didn't seem to be enough oil to fry it. The coating was crunchy and flavorful, but it would have been nice to have it on the chicken and not stuck to the bottom of the pan. I really did't care for this one. Sorry!
The second time I made this rather than use taco seasoning I used some adobo and rubbed it on the chicken then did my usual method of flour, eggs & milk, flour. I was not impressed with the taco seasoning taste. I made this for a family picnic and the mexican side said it tasted like taco bell made fryed chicken and the black side said it was a crime against chicken. Also super messy!
Love this recipe. It was easy to make and I will use it over and over again
Dad got to impress the crew...The rest of the fam liked it....I found myslef putting hot sauce on it to appease my buds...The tasting kind!
I did not care for this recipe. I thought the seasoning mix was a little strange in the breading.
the flavor was great but the breading was sticking to the bottom of the pan beacause there wasnt enough oil so we added oil. but we still couldnt keep the breading on. but we will def. try this one again
