Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes | Yield: 6 servings


2-1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 cup salsa
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
6 flour tortillas (10 inches), warmed
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup fat-free half-and-half
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles


1) Preheat oven to 425°. In a nonstick skillet, simmer the chicken, salsa, onion, cumin and oregano until ingredients are heated through and most of the liquid has evaporated.
2) Place 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla; top with 2 tablespoons cheese. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up.
3) Place seam side down in a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
4) Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the broth, bouillon and pepper. Cook until bouillon is dissolved. In a small bowl, combine flour and half-and-half until smooth; gradually stir into broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in chiles; cook until heated through. Serve with chimichangas.
