I love making 6-8 of these guys when my hubby and his friends are watching the game! Love feeding a crowd!

Once upon a time, in the heart of a bustling kitchen, the miracle of Mexican-American fusion gave birth to the chimichanga. Legends swirl around how this dish came to be—some say it was an accident, a burrito dropped in hot oil, others claim it was a carefully crafted invention. Whichever tale you favor, this much is clear: there's a kind of joy in the savory folds of a chimichanga that's hard to find elsewhere. Now, dear reader, I bring to you my take on this delightful dish, but with a twist: Baked Chicken Chimichangas. In this recipe, we’ll swaddle the filling in a tender embrace of tortilla and bake it to golden perfection, offering a healthier option without sacrificing a ribbon of nostalgia that comes from traditional frying. It's the kind of meal that fills your home with warmth, perfect for when the grandkids come over or just when you need a touch of comfort, like a trusty quilt on a brisk autumn evening.
