Baked Chicken Taquitos
1.5 lbs. Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken Breast Fillets, sliced into thirds
1 small can green chiles, diced (mild)
1 T. adobo or taco seasoning
2 c. chicken broth
10 flour tortillas (medium sized)
1 c. shredded Mexican cheese
1/4 c. olive oil
2 T. lime juice
Pico de Gallo, avocados, sour cream, etc.
I like making shredded chicken in my pressure cooker because it cooks quickly and the flavors really soak in. I combine the chicken, seasoning, green chilies and chicken broth and heat until it reaches full pressure. Then I cook for 20 minutes, remove from heat and wait until the pressure releases.
If you don’t have a pressure cooker, place your chicken, seasoning, chilies, chicken stock and 1 cup of water into a pot and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
When chicken is cooked through, take out of pot and set aside. Reserve 1/2 c. of the broth.
Shred chicken and stir in 1/2 c. of the reserved broth.
Bake @425 degrees for 15 minutes or until crispy and brown.
A lot of the produce that we eat is grown locally and we love supporting these farmers. We are big fans of the local U-pick farm and it is definitely a perk of living in California.
