Happy Friday! What’s on the menu tonight? Maybe this unusually cold weather has you in the mood to prepare warm foods that won’t take too long. If that’s the case, pay close attention to this chicken flauta recipe.
- Four to six boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- Flour tortillas
- Black pepper and sea salt
- Coconut oil
- One or two chopped Serrano peppers
- A pair of quarts of organic chicken broth
- One yellow or white chopped onion
- A stalk of chopped celery
- Water (optional)
Use a large soup pot to add the chicken, the broth, celery, onion, and the peppers. Add some salt and pepper for taste and allow the chicken to stew over medium to low heat until you can pull it apart easily. Turn the heat off and put the chicken aside until it’s cool to the touch. Once it’s ready, shred it and place it in a large bowl until it’s time to create the flautas.
Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan, making sure you have enough to fry the flautas. The oil should be at least an inch or two deep. Once it’s ready, heat the tortillas on a small skillet and then take a handful of the chicken and place it in the center of the tortilla. Don’t forget to squeeze out any extra liquid that may still be in the chicken. Roll up the tortilla and place it in the oil with the folded side down. Use tongs to move the tortilla around so it fries evenly until it’s golden brown on all sides. When ready, move the flauta over to a paper towel and repeat the process for the rest of the tortillas.
Serve the flautas with some guacamole, hot sauce, and your salsa of choice.
