Chicken Chimies

Oxmoor House
Yield serves 6 to 8
Add a bit of heat to this Mexican favorite by using pepper Jack cheese in place of regular Monterey Jack.


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • Salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 10 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (8-oz.) pkg. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 green onions, diced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Toppings: sour cream, guacamole, salsa
  • Optional: lettuce leaves

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add chicken and sauté about 3 minutes.

  2. Spoon chicken evenly onto tortillas. Top with cheese and green onions; fold up sides and roll up, burrito-style. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add rolled-up tortillas and sauté until golden. Serve with your choice of toppings and over lettuce leaves; if desired.
