How To Make Air Fryer Chicken Chimichangas
Whip a less-grease meal with this air fryer chicken chimichangas, stuffed with tender chicken and favorite fillings, and served with a tangy pica de gallo!
Pico De Gallo:
In a small bowl, combine the tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, orange juice, lime juice, garlic, cumin, and drained chiles. Mix well to incorporate.
On a work surface, working with one at a time, place one-quarter of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese.
Lift the edge nearest, then wrap it around the filling. Fold the left and right sides in toward the center and continue to roll into a tight cylinder. Set aside, seam side down, and repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
Lightly spray all sides of the chimichangas with oil. Place 2 of the chimichangas seam side down in the air fryer basket
Cook for 7 to 8 minutes, flipping halfway, until golden and crisp. Repeat with the remaining chimichangas.
Place ¾ cup of shredded lettuce on each plate. Place a chimichanga on top along with 2 tablespoons of pico de gallo, 1 tablespoon of sour cream, and 1 ounce of avocado.
Garnish with cilantro, serve, and enjoy!
