Folding the Flautas with the Grilled Chicken

Season your chicken tenderloins and grill on a skillet when ready chop  and set aside. Using soft flour tortillas start building the flautas by stuffing with 1 or 2 teaspoons of the chopped grilled chicken and roll. Do this until you get 12 flautas and set them aside on a plate until ready to fry.
