Oven Baked Chicken Chimichangas Recipe

Oven Baked Chicken Chimichangas Recipe

Ever since my husband discovered chicken chimichangas, he’s been urging me to put them on our meal plan so he can make them again and again! The shredded chicken, refried beans and baby spinach filling is fresh and tasty, and they are so easy to pull together.

Usually chimichangas are fried in oil in a frying pan, but this recipe calls for them to be oven baked – much healthier and they can all be served at the same time with lots of sour cream, cheese and fresh salsa.

To make the salsa, finely chop two tomatoes and one shallot or a small red onion and mix with half a diced avocado and a small tin of corn kernels. Top with some coriander if you don’t believe it to be the devil’s herb. 😀
