20 Minute Low Fat Healthy Chicken Burrito Recipe (1)

I’m not sure what happened.

I blame my children.

I went from the wife and mother who used to love to create an award-winning meal to a wife and mother who has exactly 27 minutes to prepare a meal that no one will complain about before we go to our next activity.

Cooking and meal preparation has changed in our house.

I have less time. More vocal eaters. And a desire to still create something that is healthy from scratch.

For some reason, Mexican is always a hit in our house. Maybe it is the smothering of sour cream and salsa or maybe it is the addition of tortilla chips….all I know is that when I’m crunched for time this is my healthy chicken burrito recipe.

      For those looking for a calorie count, my boyfriend and I did the math with all the ingredients and divided that result by 3 to get the calories for 1 serving and it came to about 510 calories each. So pretty healthy, and very filling and delicious!!

    Thanks for this recipe! This looks really good. I think for the final step I will use my Foreman grill instead of a grill pan or skillet. Cooking both sides at once will save another minute or two. 🙂

    I make something similar but use rotisserie chicken, cheese, green onion and avocado. Agreed that kiddos love them. Serve with a fruit salad and dinner is done in 15 minutes flat. I also put all of mine on my family size foreman grill and spray with a little “Pam”. I can make 8 at a time. Great for sleepovers too!

    The recipe looks great, but I would never, ever advise anyone to use cooking spray on their cast iron! Everything I’ve read says it will ruin the cast iron! I cook in my husband ‘s grandmother’s cast iron pans, so I am super-protective of them.

    Good recipe! I would recommend to swap the sour cream with plain greek yogurt to make it even healthier! Tastes just like sour cream but has more protein and zero fat.

    For the life of me, we can’t find our cast iron skillet! Does this HAVE to be cooked in a cast iron skillet?? It seems like such a simple and easy recipe, I’d love to get it a try. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

      Yes. You could cook them in any non-stick skillet.

    Great recipe. Thank you for sharing. Plain yogurt is a great substitute, but I also made with sour cream, both equally delicious!
