Chicken Chimichangas

Can’t get enough of Mexican Food!  Chimichangas are commonly known as a tortilla rolled around a savoury filling and deep fried.  I don’t own a deep fryer, for health benefits I prefer to oven bake everything so I just simply put these in the oven.

These Chicken Chimichangas makes 8-9 parcels.  To make this meal feed more, serve with a side of salad.
