A burrito with chicken

Recipe for goat cheese and arugula chicken burritos:


* 1 lb. (450 g.) Boneless skinless chicken (breasts or thighs)
* 4 large flour tortillas
* 1/2 lb. (250 g) Goat cheese, at room temperature
* 1 lb. White mushrooms, washed and sliced
* 1 big onion, diced
* 1 green pepper, sliced in strips
* 1 clove garlic
* Arugula leaves, quantity to taste, washed
* Olive oil
* Salt and pepper
* Garlic Powder


1) Slice the chicken breasts in order to make thin steaks that will cook rapidly, season with salt and pepper, and garlic powder.

2) Heat a little olive oil in a pan and when the oil is hot, fry the sliced chicken, until cooked through; alternatively you could cook the chicken on the grill, if you could.

Slice the chicken into strips 3/8" (1 cm.), reserve.

3) Add more oil in the same pan and heat it to the high setting, then it fry the mushrooms. Fry until brown; when the mushrooms are fried, reduce fire intensity.

Add the onions and peppers and continue cooking until the onions are translucent. Season with garlic powder. Press the garlic by mixing the crushed garlic with the mushrooms, peppers and onions. Reserve.

4) Heat up the tortillas in the microwave oven; spread the goat cheese on the tortillas, and place the arugula leaves over. Over the arugula, place the chicken strips then the mushrooms-onions mixture.

5) Roll burritos up in the traditional way burritos are rolled: fold two opposite ends, then roll from the other two ends. Roll your burrito in aluminum foil if you want to reheat later, or place on a plate with tortilla seam facing down.
