Very Delicious Chicken Flautas

Very Delicious Chicken Flautas

What to do with left-over roast chicken?  Make chicken flautas!  Before I give you the recipe for the flautas, check out my always perfect roasted chicken recipe that’s always 100% winner, winner chicken dinner!  🙂

 

INGREDIENTS FOR CHICKEN FLAUTAS:

  • 1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1  Hass avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1/2 c. sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 2 limes (1 halved, 1 cut into wedges)
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 1/2 c fresh salsa (bet you want my recipe for that one too, eh? – perhaps next post!)
  • 16 corn tortillas
  • 2 T. chopped fresh cilantro
  • sea salt

 

HOW TO MAKE IT:

1)  Scoop the avocado into a blender.  Add the sour cream and the juice of 1/2 lime and pulse until smooth.  Season with salt.
2)  Squeeze the remaining 1/2 lime over the radishes in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1/4 t. salt.  Toss the chicken with 3/4 c. salsa in a medium bowl.
3)  Wrap the tortillas in paper towels and microwave until soft, about 30 seconds.  Make sure to do this step, as I tried skipping it and the tortillas broke as I try to wrap the chicken mixture in it.  Spoon the chicken mixture down the middle of the tortillas.  Fold in the ends and roll up like a burrito; secure with toothpicks.
4)  Heat 3/4 inch olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees.  Fry the flautas, turning as needed, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.  Remove with tongs; drain on paper towels and remove the toothpicks.  Serve with the avocado cream, radishes, cilantro, lime wedges and the remaining 3/4 c. salsa.
