Easy Chicken Chimies

Okay, sorry for another post of the Mexican variety but these were so easy and delicious, I couldn't not post them. This meal is easy, healthy, and delicious. Plus, you probably have most, if not all of the ingredients already in your kitchen. What else could you ask for? These chicken chimies are healthier because you brown in them in only a small amount of oil instead of frying them, add some melted cheese, green onions, and moist shredded chicken and I bet these will become a favorite at your house too.

Chicken Chimies
Favorite Family Recipes Cookbook

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I like to do this in the crock pot. Just throw in a little chicken broth and let them simmer until they are ready to shred)

salt, pepper, & garlic salt to taste

1 Tbsp. butter (I omitted this and it tasted great still)

10 8 inch flour tortillas (I used the uncooked ones from Costco and precooked them)

8 oz. pkg. Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded

6 green onions, diced (I also cut back as this seemed a little much. I think I used 2 or 3)

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil (I used olive oil)

toppings-sour cream, guacamole, diced tomatoes, salsa, lettuce, etc.

After cooking and shredding chicken sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic salt, to taste. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add chicken and saute about 3 minutes.
Spoon chicken evenly onto tortillas. Top with cheese and green onions; fold up sides and roll up, burrito-style. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. (Mine was pretty crowded so next time I will divide them into two pans for easier turning). Add rolled-up tortillas and saute until golden. Serve with your choice of toppings and over lettuce leaves, if desired. Serves 6-8.

Stay Tuned for the delicious black beans that go with them!

Pin It!

Mmmm....never even thought of just pan frying mine. I've always dunked them in the hot oil! Thanks for a healthier version!

The love of Mexican must come from our side of the family because I too could eat it at every meal. Those look really yummy!!
