Looking for the perfect chicken for your flautas? Look no further! We’ve got the perfect recipe for you. So, if you’re in the mood for some delicious chicken flautas, look no further!

– Oaxaca

I had the most amazing dinner last night at a little family-run restaurant in Oaxaca called Lety’s.

We were served by the owner’s daughter, who was just about the friendliest and most helpful server I’ve ever encountered.

The restaurant is known for its chicken for flautas, which are tortillas stuffed with chicken and cheese, then fried.

I ordered the chicken for flautas, and it was absolutely divine.

The chicken was so tender and flavorful, and the cheese was perfectly melted.

The flautas were then topped with shredded cabbage, sour cream, and guacamole.

It was the perfect combination of flavors and textures.

I would highly recommend Lety’s to anyone visiting Oaxaca.

It’s a true hidden gem.

– Pollo Adobado

Pollo Adobado is a classic Mexican dish consisting of marinated chicken breast that has been slow-cooked in an adobo sauce made from chilies, garlic, and other spices.

This flavorful dish is often served as a main course, but it can also be used to fill flautas, a type of rolled taco popular in Mexican cuisine.

To make flautas, the chicken is shredded and then wrapped in a flour tortilla before being pan-fried or baked.

The combination of the juicy, tender chicken and the crispy, flavorful tortilla makes for a satisfying and delicious meal.

Additionally, the adobo sauce adds a spicy and smoky flavor to the dish, making it a perfect balance of savory and spicy.

– Salsa Fresca

Prep Day: Mix shredded chicken with lime juice, sour cream, cumin, and chili powder.

Season with salt and pepper.

Serve Day: Spoon chicken mixture onto tortillas and roll up.

Place in a 9 x 13″ baking dish.

Top with Salsa Fresca and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

– Flour Tortillas

Flour tortillas are made with the same dough that is used for making bread, but the dough is flattened into thin rounds and then baked.

Flour tortillas are soft and pliable, and they can be used to make soft tacos, burritos, or quesadillas.

They are also excellent for making flautas.

Chicken flautas are a variation of the traditional Mexican dish, tacos al pastor, and they are a favorite in many restaurants.

The dish consists of small pieces of chicken that are marinated in a mixture of spices and then rolled in a flour tortilla.

The rolled tortillas are then deep-fried until they are golden brown and crispy.

Flour tortillas are a good source of protein and they are also low in fat.

They are a good option for those who are trying to eat a healthy diet.

– Jack cheese

Jack cheese, is a mild-tasting, semi-soft cheese.

It has a creamy, spreadable consistency.

It is an excellent cheese for the grill.

When heated, it becomes soft and gooey.

It is also great for quesadillas, tacos, tostadas, or just eating out of the bag.

Jack cheese goes well with a wide variety of Mexican dishes.

It pairs particularly well with grilled chicken for flautas.

In a nutshell

If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal that the whole family will love, look no further than these chicken flautas! Made with juicy Pollo Adobado, fresh Salsa Fresca, and topped with melted Jack cheese, they’re sure to be a hit. And the best part? They come together in just 30 minutes! So what are you waiting for?
