Spicy Spud Crusted Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Renea

This is a very easy recipe. I omit the cayenne pepper if I am looking for something a little less spicy.

This is super fantastic! I expected it to be good, but it was way better than I thought it could be! I loved the seasonings for this (I used a chipotle taco seasoning) and I loved the texture the instant potato flakes gave to this. For the potato flakes I used a creamy butter blend, and for the cheese I used shredded instead of grated from the can. It was partly mushy where the potatoes soaked up the butter and such, and then some of the flakes got crispy as well as the cheese so you get two different textures! Its like eating chicken and mashed potatoes all at once! Baking time was perfect for my oven too. This is one of my new favorite chicken recipes!
