How To Make Baked Or Fried Chicken Taquitos
There are two ways to serve these chicken taquitos: baked or fried. Both are delicious and flavorful and sprinkled with cheese for a sweet and salty taste.
Place the chicken, salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese in a bowl. Stir until combined.
Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and place on a plate. Microwave for 1 minute or until tortillas are warm and pliable.
Lay out the tortillas on a flat surface and divide the chicken and cheese mixture among the 12 tortillas. Roll up each tortilla tightly and secure with a toothpick.
Heat 3/4 inch of oil in a deep pan to 350 degrees F. Add 3 to 4 taquitos and fry until crisp and golden brown for about 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining taquitos.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the taquitos in a single layer on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray.
Spray the tops of the taquitos with the cooking spray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
Remove toothpicks, then serve.
