Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F
Place cream cheese in a medium microwave-safe bowl; heat for 20 seconds in the microwave to soften. Stir in shredded chicken, A.1. Original Sauce, minced garlic, red bell pepper and green onion. Season to taste.
Put about 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture down the center of 1 tortilla. Roll up and place, seam side down, on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Bake 12-15 minutes until crispy and lightly golden brown. Serve immediately. You can prepare the filling ahead of time and bake these up when you’re ready to eat them.
*Make a batch of quick all-purpose chicken: Place 2 lb. split chicken breast in a slow cooker. Add 2 teaspoons crushed garlic, ¼ cup A.1. Original Sauce, ½ cup water and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Remove from slow cooker and let cool. Pull off of bone, shred and freeze in 2-cup portions. Use to make taquitos, tacos, pulled chicken sandwiches or chicken salad.
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
