Ingredients You’ll Need For Our Baked Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos Recipe:

How To Make Our Baked Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos Recipe:
*Please note this recipe needs a little marinating time so you will need to plan ahead a little bit!*
Start by adding the honey, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic powder in a medium sized bowl and whisk it all together.
Once that is combined, add in the cooked and shredded chicken breast and mix it all together.
Then, place the bowl in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes, but the flavor will be impeccable when you allow the chicken to marinate for 4-6 hours.
When the chicken is done marinating, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Remove the chicken from the fridge and then do the best you can to evenly distribute the marinated chicken between all the flour tortillas.
After you have the chicken in the tortilla, top it with some of the Monterey Jack cheese, roll it up tightly and then place the taquito seam side down on a baking sheet.
Do this with all of the tortillas until the chicken is gone.
When all the rolled tortillas are on the baking sheet, spray them with nonstick cooking spray or brush them lightly with vegetable oil.
Now, place the baking sheet in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the tortillas turn a nice golden brown.
When those are ready, combine the green enchilada sauce and sour cream in a small bowl and whisk them together to create the perfect dipping sauce.
The just serve the taquitos with the dipping sauce and enjoy!!
