Really yummy, healthy and rather cheap to make. My husband and daughter love this recipe. It is a spin off of the traditional chicken and rice. I listed portions for serving of 8(food for 2 days), but you can cut down if needed.

Super easy, and fun. Not to mention delicious. Recipe is easily altered to serve as many people as you like. Same recipe is awesome for boneless pork too.
You can put white wine in the marinade too, which is really good- about a half cup.
You can sub dry oregano for the fresh just use less, about a tablespoon

This recipe is for chicken chimichangos baked in the oven. It is an easy dish to make and gets high ratings in my house. Compliment this dish with some mexican rice for a nice dinner under 400 calories.

A cleaned up, South of the Border Mexican Recipe. I have been told by friends that came over to eat before I started dieting that these were the best marinated fajitas they ever had. I have slightly revised the recipe removing some oils and reducing the calories.
