Oven “Fried” Chicken Taquitos

Oven “Fried” Chicken Taquitos

Oven “Fried” Chicken Taquitos are a healthy twist on your favorite Mexican Food appetizer, save tons of calories by baking instead of frying.

This is actually a very old Hungry Hobby recipe, posted way back in 2014 when I had two readers. Trust me, the photos desperately needed updating!  Besides, Mexican food is hands down my favorite food, any time any place I LOVE Mexican food. Luckily for me, it is also one of the easiest foods to health-a-fy. This recipe takes your typical taquito calorie bomb and lightens it up by using chicken and baking instead of deep frying the taquitos. Way healthier than a restaurant version or frozen food, but still just as crunchy and delicious. Plus with all the calories you saved you get to dip it in a little extra guac right? What makes everything better? I was surprised at how easy this all came together. I thought it would be labor intensive with the rolling of the taquitos but the whole thing was ready in about 35 minutes!
