These chicken taquitos are an ideal freezer item. They freeze well, they cook quickly. You can take out a couple for lunches or use them for a full dinner. I usually double this recipe. It should make about 20 taquitos. We will be using some of the cooked and shredded chicken from day 5. By doing that this recipe comes together super quick and you can have dinner on the table in about 25 minutes!
