Deep Fried Chimichangas

This is a family favorite I created one evening when we first got our deep fryer. If you don't have a deep fryer, a skillet will work just fine.


3 chicken breasts
1 medium onion
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
2 tablespoons of season all
1 (1 oz) package of taco seasoning
1 (10.5 oz) can of cream of chicken soup
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
1 (8 oz) package of cheddar cheese
Flour tortillas (at least 8)


*Put chicken breasts in a large pot, cover with water.

*Chop up the onion and add it to the water, along with the garlic powder and season all (additional seasoning may be added to the water if desired).

*Bring to a boil and then simmer until the chicken is completely cooked.

*Drain the water and dispose of the onion, return the chicken to the pot and shred it with two forks.

*To the chicken, add the taco seasoning, the cream of chicken soup, the cheddar cheese and the cream cheese. Blend Well.

*Place this mixture in the middle of your tortillas, fold them securely (use the toothpicks to secure if needed) and then deep fry until golden brown.
