Easy Chicken Chimichanga Recipe made of 5 simple ingredients, perfect Mexican dish dinner idea. #EasyChickenChimichangaRecipe -- www.munchkintime.com-easy-chicken-chimichanga-recipeEasy 30-Minute Chicken Chimichanga Recipe – it is a baked burrito, stuffed with chicken, cheese and mild chilies.

They are crispy from the outside,  cheesy & juicy on the inside.

Chimichangas are very popular in Mexico and in my kitchen.

I love preparing this Mexican food recipe way ahead before dinner.  I cook chicken, shred cheese, chop salad, then fold each chimichangas and place them in the refrigerator.  15 minutes before dinner I brush them with butter and bake them until golden color.

They are super crispy, moist, and hubby-approved.

Try them for yourself, and let me know what you think!

  1. Last time i made these, i made them without the mexican sauce in them cause either i didnt see it in the ingredient list or i made them when you hadn’t added that in yet. So made without the sauce in them, they were good, just dry and I wondered why mine turned out so dry. But making these again and putting the sauce in this time, i tasted the sauce and its really good, i think these are going to be amazing when finished!

    1. Hi Shawna! Thank you so much for the recipe review & for making this recipe again, you are the best! I am so glad you like this Mexican sauce that I added it to this recipe! After hearing people’s reviews on this chicken chimichangas recipe, I decided to make this recipe better by adding this Mexican sauce, I hope you enjoyed it! 😀

  2. I made these! I cooked about six mins longer and they still were not browned. They did not turn out crunchy and were thought to cut for the kids. I would recommend putting something else in with just the three ingredients didn’t have much taste..

    1. Thank you, Amy for the recipe review! I appreciate you writing it. I took your review in consideration and made a delicious Mexican White Cream to add inside the Chicken Chimichangas to make them extra juicy on the inside. I hope you will give this recipe another try and let me know what you think. Happy Friday!

  3. Made these tonight. They were delicious! I added green onions and my oven took a lot longer to brown. I will definitely make again!
