Week Seven Recipe: Creamy Baked Chicken Taquitos

After last week's killer Twix brownie backslide I came back to the lite (Ha!) for this week's recipe.  Sweet Pea's Kitchen serves up creamy baked chicken taquitos.  NOTE: the ingredient list calls for 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley.  Use cilantro, not parsley.  The directions have it correct, so I'm guessing it's just an oversight in the ingredient list.

Make sure you check out her website; she has loads of recipes that are easy to follow.  Here's how mine came out:

These are delicious!  They have so much flavor; you would never miss them being fried like taquitos usually are.  I used light cream cheese to save even a few more calories.  Using the 3 tablespoons of filling per tortilla the recipe calls for I ended up with 12 taquitos.  From Sweet Pea's photo I'm guessing she ended up with 8; either that or her taquitos are on steroids!  

This recipe definitely gets added to the rotation.
