Chicken Antojitos Recipe – To DIE For

This week my fellow bloggers in the #FridayRecipeClub have issued the challenge for an interesting chicken recipe. Hmmm well you all know I adore chicken and have many chicken recipes available here on SoberJulie.com so how could I come up with something different?

After some thought I was deciding between Jerk Chicken or my favourite appetizer Chicken Antojitos when  realized I don’t have the right spices for Jerk Chicken so the decision was made.

Sprinkle cheddar and chicken over top of each tortilla.

Roll up your tortillas, and score the top of each roll 4 times.

Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.

Allow to sit for 2-3 minutes, then cut each roll into pinwheels using the score marks.

  1. OH Delish! We have leftover roast chicken from last night so this is perfect on the Menu Today! Thanks for the share. I am sure this will be a new Family Favorite! :D

  2. These look amazing! I make antojitos, but don’t normally put any meat in them. Now I’ll have to try it when I have leftover bird.

  3. Made these last night and huge hit. I dipped mine in salsa, my husband put cheese sauce over his.
    Big hit and so easy to make.
