Chicken Burritos

This is a recipe I have been meaning to make for a while now, and I am so glad I finally did. I saw the recipe in a Biggest Loser cookbook, but adapted it a little to suit my needs. 
You can buy most of these spices at Aldi...all except maybe cumin. I also bought a 3.5lb bag of frozen chicken thighs for $5.99. I used 4 thighs to make this recipe. The tortilllas were $0.99 at Aldi, too!

1-lb boneless chicken (thighs or breasts), cubed
2 tsp canola oil
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
flour tortillas
optional toppings: sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce, chopped tomato, taco sauce, salsa, guacamole
  • In large bowl, combine chicken and the next 7 ingredients
  • Toss to coat chicken. 
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 10 minutes.
  • Heat medium skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Cook chicken until lightly browned and no longer pink.
  • Keep warm
  • Warm tortilla in skillet (30 seconds each side) or microwave (30 seconds total)
  • Place tortilla on plate. Add chicken and toppings of your choice.
  • Fold tortilla sides over filling and then fold up the bottom.
