Chicken Burritos

A Mexican feast wrapped up in a warm tortilla.  Marinated chicken wrapped with fresh vegetables, rice, salsa, and cheese.

Chicken Burritos

Ingredients

  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 batch of the Mexican Marinate
  • 4 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1-2 large whole wheat or multigrain tortillas
  • 1 cup of cooked rice with or without beans
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeds removed and chopped
  • 3-4 leaves of Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of low-fat or fat-free shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken breasts into a sealable container.
  2. Pour the marinate over the chicken and seal the container.
  3. Marinate the chicken for at least four hours. Overnight is better.
  4. Heat up your grill to medium heat, brush the grill with the olive oil when hot.
  5. Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook until done.
  6. Cut the chicken up into slices.
  7. Heat up a frying pan or skillet on medium heat. Place a tortilla in it and heat it up for one minute per side.
  8. Assemble the burritos with the ingredients as you desire.

Quick Notes

I did not put a recipe for the rice because it’s simple brown rice seasoned with limejuice, cilantro, chili powder and red pepper. Just try on your own and make it ideal to your tastes.
