Cook chicken over medium heat (5 minutes per side is an average time for a whole chicken breast) until cooked. Let chicken rest on cutting board for 2-3 minutes, to allow juices to redistribute, then slice across the grain. Heat tortillas briefly. Drain tomato-bean mixture and divide among the four tortillas. Divide chicken and cheese also equally among the four tortillas. Roll burritos and serve.

  • A little bland but we spiced it up with cumin and hot sauce. I cooked the chicken on the grill to avoid the oil and butter. I would definitely recommend this one. - 9/11/08
