Today’s Wunder Recipe

A delicious Chicken Chimichangas recipe from the Edgewater Cafe - a popular North of Boston-area restaurant.


These chicken chimichangas are filled with moist and delicious pulled chicken and a blend of cheeses, then deep fried until perfectly crisp and golden on the outside.  Then the chimi’s are smothered in a white cream sauce that has the perfect amount of heat and seasonings – this is my idea of Mexican comfort food!

• ¼ cup butter (4 tablespoons)
• ¼ cup flour
• 2 cups chicken stock, heated
• 8 ounces sour cream
• 4 ounce can chopped green chilies, drained
• ¼ teaspoon cayenne powder
• 1 teaspoon or more of your favorite hot sauce
• 4 flour tortillas
• 8 ounces pulled chicken
• 4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
• 4 ounces Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
• Vegetable oil for cooking
• 1½ to 2 inch Stainless steel bull dog clips or binder clips (available in any office supply store)
1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
2. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and add flour. Stir and cook for 3-5 minutes or until the raw flour smell is gone.
3. Add heated chicken stock ⅓ at a time stirring with a wire whip for each third. This step will ensure no lumps.
4. Add sour cream, chilies, cayenne and hot sauce, then stir. If you like it spicy, use more hot sauce. Remove from heat or keep sauce on low heat until ready for service.
5. Fill the center of each tortilla with warmed pulled chicken and both cheeses.
6. Start rolling away from you in a tight roll until you reach the end, then flips the roll back to have seam side up. Now fold each end up and over about an inch or so and bind with stainless steel clips.
7. Heat enough oil in a heavy bottomed pot to 350 degrees using a thermometer to get to the correct temperature.
8. Place two chimichangas in the hot oil making sure they are completely covered by the oil and cook until browned and crispy, about 5 minutes. (Hold down with a metal strainer if necessary). Remove to paper towels and drain, and then hold in warm oven. Heat oil back to 350 degrees and cook the other two chimichangas.
9. With a pot holder or towel, gently remove hot binder clip.
10. Place on serving platter and cover with the sauce
