Cilantro Lime Chicken & Rice Burrito

I was recently given an opportunity to sample and review BRIANNAS Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing with one of my recipes.  Let me tell you, this dressing made my dish complete!

I first poured the dressing in a salsa dish and set it out as an appetizer (next to my favorite spicy salsa) and served it with tortilla chips . The creamy cilantro lime dressing cooled my palate between bites of the spicy stuff, it was a delicious combo!

The burrito recipe I created requires minimal prep & is easy cooking, but the specialty dressing really gives the dish restaurant-quality taste at my own dinner table. You could even make this without tortilla shells and have a burrito bowl.

I usually cook Mexican dishes extra spicy, but this dish is not spicy so almost anyone can enjoy it…my 1 year old daughter loved it! If you enjoy spicy food, you can always add hot pepper flakes to the chicken (and the creamy cilantro lime dressing is great to even-out the spice). See recipe below.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a grill pan with cooking spray and preheat on the stove top under med/high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Turn down stove top to medium heat and cook each side of chicken for 4-5 minutes. Place pan with chicken in the over for 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked all the way through. Let the chicken rest 4-5 minutes before slicing.CIlantro Lime Chicken & Rice Burrito
  3. Cook rice as directed on package. (The express cook packet only takes 90 seconds!) Pour cooked rice in mixing bowl, stir-in juice from 1 lime and fresh chopped cilantro.Cilantro Lime Chicken & Rice Burrito
  4. Heat up corn and peppers as directed on package. (The frozen bags take about 5 minutes in the microwave.) Once cooked, mix with 1/4 cup creamy cilantro lime dressing.
  5. Warm tortilla shells in microwave for 15-20 seconds. Assemble burritos with a layer of rice, chicken, corn & peppers, and a drizzle of cilantro lime dressing (shredded cheese optional). You could even make this without tortilla shells and have a burrito bowl.

Enjoy!
