I have to admit just a while back I had never even heard of chimichangas. A friend of mine mentioned them in a conversation and I had no idea what she was talking about. She’s from Texas and she couldn’t believe I had never tried them. The following week she came over with a bag full of ingredients and told me she couldn’t go on living her life, knowing that I was completely unaware of this beautiful dish! She made her recipe which, according to her, was a very traditional one – deep frying and all. I thought the chimichangas were delicious but I was concerned about the deep frying. I’ve been trying to avoid deep fried foods, so I wanted to find out if there was a way to make these using another method.
Finally I came across this oven-fried chicken chimichanga recipe! It solved my problem and I couldn’t wait to try it. I had some pulled pork leftovers in the fridge so I decided to use that instead of chicken. They turned out even better than my friend’s, if I dare say so!
