Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 tablespoons salad oil
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
8 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
4 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded jack cheese
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Dipping sauce:
1/3 cup salsa
1/3 cup sour cream

Instructions

Marinate the chicken breast in the first six ingredients for one hour in the refrigerator. Cook the chicken over medium high heat in a nonstick pan for 3-4 minutes per side. Continue to cook for 20 minutes, until done; cut into one-inch cubes. To assemble the flautas: Mix together the cubed chicken, sour cream, jack cheese and vegetable oil. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture onto each tortilla and roll up. Place the flautas on a baking sheet, brush with additional oil, as desired, and cook for 15 minutes in a preheated 400 degree oven. Turn the flautas over cook an additional seven minutes. Mix together dipping sauce and serve. Makes 2 servings.
