    James Craig's Note:

    This is a recipe I have made for a number of years. I know there are similar recipes which use condensed soup (i.e. cream of chicken). I find the soup to salty for my taste. I decided to use the flour and chicken broth mixture and accenting the flavor with oregano. I have taken this to church potlucks with great success. My wife and I usually have 1 tortilla a piece with a salad. The remaining one will go to work with my wife the next day.

      Thanks for a tasty recipe! It had a nice flavor and was easy to make. I used chicken breast tenderloins, which I cooked with some black pepper and cumin sprinkled on either side.

      Hi James! This recipe is fantastic! Like you, I try to shy away from the condensed soups whenever possible, so I was really happy to find your recipe. The only changes I made was that I used fresh oregano (one Tbs.) in place of the dried and instead of chopping up the chicken and serving inside a tortilla, I left the chicken pieces whole and served it with warm tortillas on the side. It was absolutely delicious and my family loved it!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
