Hey pals, I know that my blogging has been less than consistent lately (or consistent only of baby updates), but I just made this recipe last night and you need to make it for dinner immediately. No lie, this recipe was easy and absolutely delicious. Even Dylan loved it, and when my ridiculously picky 4 year eats it up, I feel definite feelings of triumph. Like I feel like there should be a balloon drop in my kitchen or something. Just don't make me clean it up, ok?
I found the recipe for Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos on Six Sister's Stuff, which is a great resource for dinner ideas.
So take my word for it, this recipe is awesome- cook it, eat it, enjoy it.
Baked Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos Recipe
Author: Six Sisters' Stuff (Elyse)
Recipe type: Main Dish
Prep time: 40 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 1 hour
6 Tablespoons honey
5 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Tablespoon chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
12-15 flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterrey jack cheese
1 cup green enchilada sauce
½ cup sour cream
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together honey, lime juice, chili powder and garlic powder. Add shredded chicken to the mixing bowl and let it marinate in the fridge for at least a ½ hour, but preferably a half day or so.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread chicken mixture evenly between flour tortillas, top with cheese and roll up tightly, placing seam side down on a baking sheet. Spray the tops of the taquitos with nonstick cooking spray (or brush with a little vegetable oil). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until tortillas are golden brown.
Whisk together enchilada sauce and sour cream and serve with taquitos.
