Easy Baked Chicken Chimichangas


Chimichanga is a Mexican entree that traditionally is a tortilla filled with meat or beans. Chimichangas are basically a burrito that is deep fried. So when we call these Oven Baked Chicken Chimichangas I guess we should really be calling them Oven Baked Burritos because that’s all it is.

I love chimichangas but they’re usually dripping with grease. Every time I would go to a restaurant as a child I would order a chimichanga.

These oven fried chicken chimichangas were just the taste I was craving and had plenty of crisp that you look for in a chimichanga.

Everyone loves chimichangas! This Baked Chicken Chimichanga recipe is stuffed with rice, chicken, cheese and more. Such a simple dinner recipe that is so delicious and perfect to add to the monthly menu.
