Reviews for Baked Chicken Chimichangas
"Excellent! Fast and easy too. My husband just said "five stars" and "super delicious" when I asked him how he would rate it. Definitely a repeat."
"Absolutely amazing! I did add some Mexican Rice into these... These are perfect with the perfect heat and texture! My husband (not easy to please!) absolutely loves them and says they are Chuy's quality! Thank you so much for sharing!"
"These are awesome!! easy to make and great flavor. Thanks for the recipe."
"These were very good! My kids ate them in record time and asked if there would be any leftovers! This makes a great dinner when you're pressed for time. It came together so fast! I used rotisserie chicken breast that I picked up marked down half price at Kroger, so it made for a cheap meal, too. Adding the sauce over the top at the end was a nice way to keep them from being too crispy. I just added a little sour cream when I served it, and it was great! Some fat-free refried beans and some Spanish rice on the side would make this a great Mexican meal!"
"I make these all the time. They are delicious and so easy to make."
"I was not expecting them to be so tasty. I did substitute 3/4 c. of medium taco sauce for 3/4 c. of the picante sauce as I did not have enough. Perhaps that was the secret ingredient to make them so tasty!"
"Loved this dish! Had 3 guests at my house for this meal and hey also loved it. Great flavor."
"Love chimis and the idea of baking, but wasn't a big hit. Flavor wasn't what was expected."
