These baked chipotle chicken samosas are the perfect savory bite! I mean who doesn’t love samosas?? They’re just the perfect crispy, crunchy, savory bite!Jump to Recipe
The problem with me is sometimes I love them too much, you know? Perfect bite or not, a deep fried pastry is still not that good for you! So to lessen the guilt on one of my favorite indulgences, I found a way to make the traditional deep fried samosas healthier! Baked instead of deep fried!!!
Yes it does have a slightly different texture, but that satisfying crunch is there and no greasy hands!! Plus it beats standing in front of a deep frying and individually frying each one. Just stick all of the samosas onto a baking sheet in one shot and 30 minutes later you have can be sitting down and enjoying a fresh batch of samosas! If I’m making samosas at home, believe me I’m making this way from now on!
So course since I changed the method to make samosas, I didn’t want to show you just the traditional filling either. So these baked samosas are not the usual peas and potato filling (although that’s still my favorite!) Its a cheesy, spicy Mexican inspired chipotle chicken taco filling.
Have fun with the Filling!
Here is what I used for the Chipotle Chicken Filling:
- Ground chicken
- Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce
- Bell Peppers
You can use whatever filling you like here! If you’re looking for a vegetarian option, replace the chicken with tofu or black beans. Add in other veggies that you prefer: zucchini, tomato, carrot. If you’re looking for more heat amp up the chipotle peppers in the filling or add some fresh jalapeños! If its already too spicy, just reduce the seasoning amount and omit the chipotle peppers.
The fun thing about changing up the filling is that you can change up what you serve them with too. Try serving these baked chipotle chicken samosas in a platter like nachos with sour cream, salsa guacamole, queso and of course do not forget the spicy jalapeno cilantro chutney!!
