Recipe Tips

  • Tip: Substitute 2 cans (4.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained, for the cooked chicken.

    Me who usually turns my nose up at this kind of recipe........

    actually found it delicious and very quick to make. I used a roasted chicken I got from Costco. My husband asks me to make this sometimes.

    So easy and so good!!!!

    I used the precooked cut chicken in a bag and sautéed it for a bit before I mixed it all together to make sure it wasn't cold before I put it in the oven. I also used hot picante salsa to give it more flavor. Yummy!!!

    Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

    So simple! Used taco seasoning and sourcream in the mixture for extra flavor/creaminess.

    Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

    This recipe is easy and delicious. I added a little taco seasoning to the chicken before I cooked it (stirfry style) and it gave it a great flavor. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. Even my picky eaters ate it so this will be a regular meal/snack in our house. We topped it with sour cream and chopped green onions. DELICIOUS!!
