Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

A fast and healthier way to serve Chimichangas than the traditional deep fried. These are very good, and you may dress them up to you own preference. I like to serve with green chile sauce sometimes instead of the picante sauce.

We live in New Mexico and I can definitely say that these are restaurant quality chimichangas! Everything turned out wonderful. I added a roma tomato to the mixture as well as some garlic salt and pepper. These are so good that we agreed to put them on our weekly menu!
