Oven Fried Chicken Chimichangas Recipe

Oven Fried Chicken Chimichangas

A fast and healthier way to serve Chimichangas than the traditional deep fried. These are very good, and you may dress them up to you own preference. I like to serve with green chile sauce sometimes instead of the picante sauce. Here is full recipe for Oven Fried Chicken Chimichangas.
