    Recipe Junkie's Note:

    From the Sunset Potluck Cookbook. I love baked chicken recipes! And I especially like to collect recipes which call for those leg and thigh pieces, because those are always cheaper than most cuts of chicken. The recipe recommends serving with guacamole or a squeeze of lime juice.

      I think I have a new favorite oven-fried chicken recipe. WOW! I used enchilada sauce instead of taco sauce or salsa.

      Great dish. I used hot taco sauce and just one coating. It was delicious. Thank you.

      I loved this recipe..... delicious. The only thing i suggest is to do only one coating instead of 2, the chiken gets more tender and splendid
