These are a perfect little snack, appetizer or even dinner!  I used leftover BBQ chicken or grilled chicken but rotisserie chicken or any type of leftover cooked chicken works perfectly in this recipe!

Taquitos are often fried but baking them crispy in the oven is super easy and they turn out great!  When using corn tortillas you have to be careful to keep them moist because they crack easily.  I microwave them with damp paper towels and only remove the ones I am working with while keeping the others covered.
