Oven-Baked Chicken Chimichangas
Could we make this Mexican favorite in the oven without a deep fryer?
Why This Recipe Works
We use “burrito-size" tortillas for our Oven-Baked Chicken Chimichangas that were at least 10 inches in diameter. Smaller tortillas broke apart if overstuffed. Preheating the baking sheet before we put the chimichangas in the oven ensured the exterior began crisping immediately. Coating the chimichangas with vegetable oil also helped speed up the browning.
