  • 2 large cooked chicken breasts shredded (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets steamed until they are bright green
  • 8 small 6-inch diameter flour tortillas 6-inch diameter flour tortillas


  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • 1 sleeve Ritz-style crackers crushed
  • 2 tbsp butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 13 x 9-inch pan with olive oil or cooking spray (I grease with olive oil). This step can be eliminated if you choose not to brown the crumbs.
  • Mix the cracker crumbs with the 2 tbs of melted butter in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • For the sauce, melt butter over medium-low heat in a large heavy saucepan.
  • Whisk in the flour, whisking until there are no lumps. Let this start to bubble and cook for about 1 minute, whisking constantly.
  • Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly until there are no lumps. Continue stirring until sauce is thick and begins to bubble. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Add the shredded cheese, chicken and broccoli to the sauce and stir until well blended and the cheese has melted.
  • Divide chicken mixture between 8 small flour tortillas. Fold up taco-style (see photos) and place in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until crumbs are golden brown.
