Baked Crockpot Chicken Taquitos

Once again the weekend has gone by too fast. Have a great week everyone! If you are looking for an easy dinner recipe, look no further! This baked chicken taquitos recipe uses tender chicken seasoned in a crock pot on low all day, so minimal cooking time is required! They come out of the oven nice and crispy. I have seen many different recipes that use a variety of seasonings, and some use flour some use corn tortillas…but this is my favorite chicken taquito recipe. I kind of always fail at rolling them tight enough…I think it helps to microwave to tortillas to soften them up. Enjoy!
