Baked Chicken Chimichangas



This recipe came highly recommended to me from my friend Erin and I always trust her food judgement.  I whipped this together in like 10 minutes.  Buy a rotisserie chicken it saves time.  I assembled everything at naptime at then just baked at dinner.  These really get crispy like a true chimichangas but they are baked so way less fat than the fried kind.   They were totally delish.
Oh and that is not ketchup on top it is Victorias Hot Sauce, good stuff.
Enjoy!
