Baked Chicken Taquitos

We love tacos in our home!!  I bet we have them at least 2-3 times a month.  Well this time I wanted to try something different for taco night.  I love Taquito’s and it never occurred to me to make them myself.  I think this recipe is fantastic!  My husband even approved the change in taco night and loved these. I cant wait to make them again, maybe with shredded beef next time!
Baked Chicken Taquito’s
2-3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
3 ounces soft cream cheese
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp onion powder
3 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp fresh minced garlic
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, I used sharp
1 package corn tortillas or flour
sour cream, optional
salsa, optional
guacamole, optional
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.  Warm corn tortillas 1 at a time in between two damp paper towels and heat for 30 seconds.  This helps the tortillas from cracking when you roll them. Spread chicken mixture in the tortilla, about 2 Tbsp and roll.  I used a toothpick to help keep the tortillas together.  Place seem side down and bake on a sprayed cookie sheet at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

Bake longer if you want it extra crispy.

Serve with sour cream, salsa and my personal favorite guacamole!
My Notes:
When I was boiling the chicken I added about 1 Tbsp of taco seasoning to the water for a little added flavor to the chicken. 

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

I can’t even describe how great this pizza tasted!
It was quick and easy to put together and the entire family enjoyed it!

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
2 chicken breasts
Pita bread
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2-3 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
Red onion, diced
Favorite BBQ Sauce, I used Sweet Baby Rays
Cilantro, chopped

Bake or barbecue your chicken in your favorite sauce, then chop. Lay your crust out, I used whole wheat pita bread.  Spread about 2 Tbsp of  Barbecue sauce on top.  Sprinkle generously with mozzarella cheese.  Add on top of cheese your chicken, onion, bacon and cilantro.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until cheese is melted.


My Notes:
My chicken was left over barbecue chicken from the night before that I chopped up.  I really liked using the pita bread.  Its alot quicker then having to make dough and it tastes just as great!
I cooked mine on my pizza stone!  If you don’t own I highly recommend getting one.  I use it all the time for pizza and breads.
