Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas - Health Recipes 
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.

INGREDIENTS For Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

  • 2⁄3 cup picante sauce or 2⁄3 cup your favorite salsa
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
  • 1 1⁄2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped with some tops (about 1/4 cup)
  • 6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • shredded cheddar cheese, for serving
  • chopped green onion, for serving
  • picante sauce, for serving

How To Make Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

  • Mix chicken, picante sauce or salsa, cumin, oregano, cheese and onions.
  • Place about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla.
