      Put chicken breasts in large ziplock bag.

    3. 3
      Add one tablespoon of the taco seasoning to buttermilk/chicken.

    9. 9
      If you have a rack you can set on the pan, spray that.

      This was fantastic. I made it for Sunday dinner with green beans, stuffing, etc. Very easy to make. The taco seasoning really adds great flavor to the breadcrumbs. I didn't have parmesan bread crumbs, so I mixed grated parmesan with plain bread crumbs, then added the taco seasoning and flour. Excellent meal. Thanks for posting the recipe Claire.

      Wow!!! I always thought that Taco flavour was a "beef" thing. Boy was I wrong!! This Taco flavoured chicken was terrific. I used bone in breasts and it worked like a charm. What a great and simple recipe. Thank you Claire
