Am I the only one that does NOT think making Chicken Rolls is easy? Seriously, this recipe is really good! It is also easy up until you have to roll up the chicken but that is a personal issue,obviously! The chicken comes out so moist, the tortillas add a really distinctive flavor and the cheese is just so yummy and creamy. I only made 2 note-worthy changes. I used chips with a hint of lime flavor which was a pretty good idea on my part and instead of mixing the egg with water, I mixed it with tequila which was another pretty good idea on my part. A very nice "show-off" recipe that doesn't take a gazillion years to make! I will make this again! Thanks!

I didn't make this exact, since I didn't have everything, but for the filling i used shredded montery jack cheese w/jalepeno peppers and banana peppers instead of the chile.....it was VERY good...served w/salso as suggested...will be making this again! (it was hard to roll...first time making a chicken roll ;)
