This was amazing! I, too, had too much filling, which was fine cause I had extra tortillas as well. I also tried adding some lettuce — not a good idea, it cooked on the grill and got all mushy. Haha, my first time making burritos so overall I was surprised that it was so successful aside from that! Thank you for the recipe!!

This recipe is so delicious! The hubby loves it, too! I basically doubled the recipe and used 3 lbs. boneless, skinless, frozen chicken breasts thawed and boiled for 30 minutes. It shredded just fine and was thoroughly cooked. I also put a little lime and jalapeno (would have put cilantro, too, but it went bad!) in my rice to make it more like Chipotle. All told, this made 20 burritos, so we’ll have plenty for later and to freeze. This recipe was very easy to follow and turned out even better than I had envisioned. The burritos were the perfect crispness and stayed together without making too much of a mess. Thanks for sharing!

The filling is amazing and so versatile. I seem to have left over filling, but will gladly find a way to use it! My 3 year old gobbled this up so it is definitely going into the rotation. Great, easy dinner.

These are so incredibly good! The seasoning on the rice is just perfect. Next time I’ll cook my chicken a bit more so it shreds easier but I love the flavors together. Great recipe!
