Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas. Beautiful New Music From Skinny Dipper.

Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas


Chimichangas, those crispy, delectable deep-fried burritos made popular in the American southwest, get lightened up (well, a little bit!) in this oven-fried version. Chicken is mixed with a spiced salsa, cheese and onions before being rolled up in flour tortillas and baked until golden. Super easy, super delicious and super fast, this is one of the best recipes I have made recently.

Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas

I would typically serve up Tex-Mex with something loud and margarita-ready. However, I heard this song for the first time today and fell instantly in love with it.

I’m going to Scotland next month, so started searching around for bands and new music in the hope that I could see a live show while there.

I happened upon this gorgeous song from Glasgow-based Skinny Dipper. Such beautifully soft vocals singing such lovely lyrics. The song title is actually “Hospital Bed” from the forthcoming EP ‘Masks’.

Check out Skinny Dipper on Facebook and the band’s Website, where you can learn of shows in Glasgow and Edinburgh. You can pre-order the new EP on Bandcamp.
