Golden chicken flutes: easy Mexican recipe

If the Mexican gastronomy is very varied, there are some basic dishes that cannot be missing from the menu of any house. Such is the case of chicken flutes that are part of the family of famous tacos. In summary, we could define them as fried and rolled chicken tacos. The flutes can also be made with many other ingredients such as potatoes with chorizo, ham and cheese or the very Mexican Huitlacoche.

Today I invite you to prepare delicious golden chicken flutes that are ideal for a meal with Mexican tints. Likewise, you can offer them at snack time as they are eaten mainly with the hands. You will need to look for a Mexican green sauce that you can find in the product sections of that country in many supermarkets.

How to make golden chicken flutes

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 40 m
  • Elaboration 10 m
  • Cooking 30 m

To start we are going to boil the chicken breasts in a pot with water and salt. We leave them for 20 to 25 minutes. At the end of this time we unpack them. Chop the onion that we fry for a couple of minutes in vegetable oil. Then add the chicken, season with salt and leave about five more minutes on the fire, at medium intensity.

Now we are going to heat in the microwave, for about 20 seconds, the corn tortillas so that they become a little more loose. We place a portion of chicken on the edge of the tortilla and roll it up. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the flutes previously formed by placing the part that opens down. This will make the tortilla harden and the flute will no longer open. We leave about three minutes on both sides so that the flutes are well browned. We serve hot with Mexican green sauce, cream and grated cheese.

What to accompany the golden chicken flutes

The best way to fully enjoy these golden chicken flutes is hot with some beans and of course a cold beer. As I mentioned at the beginning, you can also offer them at the aperitif time for a good weekend snack.
