One of our New Year’s Resolutions was to eat out less and eat healthier.  My husband has started taking his lunch to work- but he’s getting tired of sandwiches all the time!  So, I decided to make him some chicken burritos…. YUMMY!

These are perfect to make up a whole batch- throw them in the freezer- then he just grabs one out in the morning to take with him.  By lunch time he can just toss it in the microwave for about 2 minutes and he’s got a good, hot, lunch ready to eat!

SO, I’m going to share with you my Simple Chicken Burrito recipe that is perfect for Once A Month Cooking!

Chicken Burritos

Directions:

Boil the chicken breast for about 45 minutes or until cooked all the way through. Then take 2 forks and shred the chicken breasts in a bowl (drain the water before shredding).

Mix in the salsa with the shredded chicken.

Cook your rice to desired firmness. (It’s okay to be a little al dente because it will soften a little bit when it’s frozen and reheated).  I added some frozen corn to the rice and it turned out really good!

Now, put together your burritos.  I spread a little bit of rice on the bottom, then top it with the Salsa Chicken, black beans, and shredded cheese.  Then just fold each side in and wrap a paper towel around your burrito.  Then I wrap each burrito in a piece of aluminum foil, put them in a large freezer bag, and toss them in the freezer.

There you go…. easy lunches whenever you need them!  I think next time I might make carnitas (pork) for the stuffing…. my husband LOVES carnitas!

What would you stuff your burritos with?

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
