Oven-Baked Chicken Chimichangas

Yum Print This Post Print This Post

Oven-baked chicken chimichangas are a healthier version of the well-known recipe.  They do not disappoint and are a delicious option that do not require the traditional deep-frying method. The tortillas brown nicely in the oven with the melted butter/margarine.  They have a great flavor that is retained throughout the baking process. From Cully’s Kitchen to yours!

Cuisine: Mexican
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup of salsa
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1.5lb chopped cooked chicken
  • 8oz shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 minced green onion stalks, divided
  • 8 ten-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and cover with a thin layer of oil spray.
  2. Combine and mix chopped cooked chicken, salsa, cumin, oregano, ¾ cup of cheese, and ¾ of the minced green onion in a mixing bowl. Place about ⅓ cup of mixture in the center of each tortilla. Fold left and right sides inward, then roll from the bottom upwards so that the mixture is secure inside of the tortilla. Place seam-side down on baking sheet.
  3. Brush the tops and sides of the chimichangas with melted butter or margarine. Bake for about 25 minutes, until golden brown. Use remaining cheese and green onion as garnish on top of the chimichangas. Serve with lettuce, tomato, guacamole, and/or sour cream if desired.
