  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Seasoned Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Pepper
  • 1-½ cup Milk
  • Olive Oil For Pan Searing

Preparation

Remove skin from chicken. In a bowl, combine flour, seasoned salt, salt and pepper. Pour milk in a separate, shallow bowl.

Press chicken into the flour mixture, then the milk, then the flour mixture again. Set aside. Heat up several tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet and pan sear each chicken thigh until flour is starting to turn golden brown. Transfer to a sprayed 9 x 13 casserole dish.

In the same skillet, saute onion and jalapenos until tender. Add tomato sauce, water and spices. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes or until thickened. Pour over chicken.

Cover and bake at 350ºF for 35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Serve chicken and sauce over Mexican rice.

Ole!
