I am sure you have heard of baked ranch chicken, this recipe is very similar only I made it with Taco Seasoning mix & Panko Bread crumbs.

It came out nice & crispy, tender & very juicy. I cooked two kinds in this recipe, I made BONE IN chicken as well as BONELESS. It all turned out really great.

I am sure you know that the bone in takes longer to cook, than the boneless, so you cook the BONE IN PIECES for 20 minutes, before you add the BONELESS PIECES to the pan, that way they all get done at the same time.

You have got to try this simple & easy recipe, I am sure YOU will LOVE IT

Ingredients

4 large
boneless skinless chicken breasts
5
bone in chicken thighs
2 pkg
taco seasoning mix (1 oz pkg)
1 Tbsp
granulated garlic powder
1 Tbsp
montreal chicken seasoning
1 c
parmesan/romano( grated)
1 c
panko bread crumbs (japanese bread crumbs)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
You may use any parts of the chicken you like, but remember that the bone in will take about 45 minutes total time, or till juices run clear. Boneless only needs about 25 minutes total at 425 degrees F.
2
Prepare a large jelly roll size pan, by lining with foil and spraying with non stick cooking spray. Set aside till needed. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.Picture was before I added the foil.
3
Rinse chicken parts and put in a large platter.Leave somewhat wet so breading will adhere to chicken.I am saving calories by not dipping in melted butter.
4
In a large zip lock bag add the taco seasoning, the montreal Chicken seasoning, garlic powder, parmesan cheese blend, and panko bread crumbs, shake till completely mixed.
5
Now add Chicken one piece at a time to zip lock bag, then shake to coat on all sides then place on prepared cookie sheet.Leave a little space between each piece. Repeat till all bone in pieces are done.Can spray lightly with non stick cooking spray if desired. Then place in oven and cook for 20 minutes.DON'T FORGET TO SET THE TIMER. During this time prepare the boneless chicken breasts.
6
AFTER THE 20 MINUTES has elapsed. Remove pan from oven and add the boneless chicken breast. Return to oven, and set timer for 25 additional minutes at same temperature of 425 degrees F. This should be enough time for all pieces to cook completely. Juices should run clear if pierced.
7
Remove from oven when done and serve promply while still hot.
