    Chef Sharon R's Note:

    I make a large batch of the chicken base and freeze in small quantities for quick thaw and fast meal prep. These are super easy, delicious and somewhat weight watcher friendly. Enchiladas, Tacos and Mexican pizzas can also be made from this Chicken base recipe - (see those postings for recipes). Use your imagination for other variations.

      My family absolutely LOVED this recipe! I made a full recipe of the chicken base to split between these chimis & your Soft Chicken Tacos (using a different salsa in each half) & we really loved the crispy, baked texture of these chimis. Not to mention how quick & easy they are! With a half recipe I was able to make 8 chimis. :) Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes, Sharon! We'll be making all three again & again! I'm so happy to have adopted you this round! Made & enjoyed for Pick A Chef Spring 2009. http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=296583

      Easy and great tasting. They are crispy and delicious. Even Jack loved them and asked me to make them again in the future! Yummy and satisfying! We are so excited we have left overs, too. Thanks for the great recipe Chef Sharon R!
