Chili Garlic Taco Chicken


When my craving for buffalo wings met my love for Mexican food and ran into the road block of my weight loss journey, this yummy chicken was born.  It wasn't truly "Buffalo" in flavor, however, it was spicy and tangy and oh so delicious. It was so easy too.  It was perfect for a quick weeknight meal. 

I de-skinned some chicken legs.  I coated them liberally with Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce and rolled them in Taco Bell taco seasoning.  Into a 400 degree oven they went until they were done.   With additional chili garlic sauce on the side, it was just what I needed to conquer the craving.

Sooooo good!
