Chicken Flautas

Recipe by AmbyDawn
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 12 flautas




  • Bring saucepan of water and chicken to boil.
  • Reduce heat to simmer for 15-20 minutes, until chicken is cooked.
  • Remove from pan.
  • After chicken has cooled, shred with 2 forks and set aside.
  • Chop onion and mince garlic.
  • Add onion and garlic to heated oil and sauté on low heat until onion is soft, but not browned.
  • Mix in chicken and season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove from heat and add in cheese.
  • Mix well.
  • Soften tortillas in microwave for 30 sec.
  • Heat frying oil until small piece of tortilla floats and bubbles.
  • Place chicken mixture in each tortilla, roll up tightly and secure with toothpick.
  • I recommend putting tortilla in oil immediately, as they tend to crack and come apart if left sitting.
  • Turn flautas frequently, cooking 2-3 minutes or until golden.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve with creme and salsa, if desired.
