Oven Fried Tex Mex Chicken Nuggets are Marinated Boneless Chicken with Tex Mex Flavors and then Floured with Wheat Flour to make a Crispy Outside!

Oven Fried Chicken is our favorite way to make a Healthier Fried Chicken! These do not Disappoint! We use Wheat Flour because it is heavier, sticks to the Chicken better without having to use Eggs and is Crispier than White Flour. These Chicken Nuggets have a Taco Flavor to them and definitely are not the typical Fried Chicken Seasoning, Delicious! For More of our Chicken Recipes, Click Here!
