Easier than heating up some oil in a deep fryer, and certainly as delicious as fried chicken...and guiltless! I prefer these done with thigh meat, but they do take a bit longer to cook. Beat them into submission....enjoy.
We tried them a few ways, even making our own tortilla chips first, but seriously, just throw in the taco shells or the corn chips and you are good to go. A lot less hassle and very crunchy and yummy! Not Fried Chicken. As you do!
