How to make it

  • Coat the bottom of a large skillet with olive oil & heat on medium high.
  • Dry the chicken breasts with a paper towel, then coat them in the rub, shaking off any excess. Place the chicken into the pan (it should sizzle), browning well on both sides until just underdone (about 10-15 minutes, depending on thickness of chicken). Squeeze half of the lime over the chicken. When the pan starts becoming dry, add in 1/2 cup of the chicken stock..make sure you loosen up all those nice brown bits stuck to the pan. Remove the chicken and let it rest on a plate for at least 10 minutes, then shred it with your hands or two forks.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil, set aside.
  • Once the chicken is removed, add the onion and bell pepper to the pan, coating them in the leftover juices; let cook about 5 minutes until they start to become translucent. Add in the tomatoes & garlic, lime zest, and the rest of the lime juice; stir well. Once the veggies have absorbed most of the liquid, pour in the rest of the chicken stock, and let cook another couple minutes, until half of the liquid is cooked off & the veggies are soft.
  • Transfer the shredded chicken, cilantro, and veggies (along with any leftover juices) to a large bowl and combine well. Fill each tortilla with 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture, then roll them up tightly, like a burrito, and place on the baking sheets. Make sure the taquitos are spread out so they have room to brown! Brush them liberally with olive oil and bake on the middle rack for 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Serve with rice, beans, & fresh guac :)

    First I would like to say. I made these and they were very very good. My husband really liked them too. I made 12 and they were all ate. Hubby took the last 4 for his lunch the next day. The seasonings for the chicken were very very tasty. I usually add more spices to any recipe that I make. If anyone is trying to decide if they should make this recipe, my advise to them, is yes you should make it. They are very good. This was the first time that I ever made homemade toquito's. I was delighted. I would like to say Thank You Very Much for this recipe:).

    Great sounding recipe and I love Taquitos with some Salsa Verde but I'm really going to miss the greasy fingers. :-) RJ
