  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 1 tortilla in the hot oil for 5 seconds; flip tortilla and cook for 5 seconds more. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  • Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto each tortilla. Sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese over filling. Spoon filling in a line down the middle of a tortilla. Fold opposing edges of the tortilla to overlap the filling. Roll 1 of the opposing edges around the filling.

  • Place each chimichanga, seam-side down, in the hot oil of the same skillet until browned, about 3 minutes per side.

Ahh darn it! I put all the Marinade ingredients on raw chicken cubes! Let it set overnight and Broiled the whole shebang. Rest of the recipe was the same. Excellent chimichangas. I've been asked to make them again. I kept them in the toaster oven on warm while I fried the rest. About 3 at a time. That marinade is so so good!! I don't think I'll change what I did- even though it was wrong. Read More
