I love fried chicken, who doesn't? But I was getting bored with my healthier "fried" chicken. I looked through my cabinets and saw a left over bag of frito corn chips and a light bulb went off, lol. I mixed and mixed and tweaked and finally served this to my family who truly thought I had spent hours frying the chicken, that's how crisp and tasty it was. Give it a try!
