Baked Chimichangas--trying to be healthy

Baked Chicken Chimichangas
I got this recipe out of a healthy eating magazine and make it all the time. Only 300 calories per chimichanga  :)
(makes six chimis)
1 1/2 cups cubed chicken
1 1/2 cups picante sauce, divided
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup chopped green onions, divided
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 tbsp butter, melted

In a small bowl combine the chicken, 3/4 cup of the picante sauce, cheese, 1/4 cup green onions, cumin, and oregano. Spoon 1/2 cup of the mixture down the center of each tortilla. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Place seam side down in a square baking dish coated with cooking spray and brush with butter.
Bake uncovered at 375 for 20 minutes and top with remaining picante sauce and green onions.
