Citrus Sweet Chicken Burritos by Brett Borup

Here is my husband's original recipe I talked about in a previous post. I had a few requests for it so here it is:

3 boneless chicken breasts
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (optional)
10 Tbsp. Lime Juice
6 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup uncooked rice
1 can black beans
1 sweet onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup shredded med. cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
8 flour tortillas, cooked

Boil chicken until cooked through (about 20 minutes). Save broth. Remove chicken from broth and shred with forks.

Combine in a pot with chicken:
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
6 Tbsp. Lime Juice
4 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
4 Tbsp. Sugar
Pinch Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Bring to Boil. Simmer 1/2 hour

Combine in rice cooker with 1 cup rice
2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
4 Tbsp. Lime Juice
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp. sugar
Cook as usual in rice cooker

Meanwhile, in a pan, saute onion with 1 Tbsp. butter and 2 Tbsp. sugar until golden brown. Heat the beans. Cook the corn. Combine onions, beans, and corn.

Place a scoop of rice, a scoop of bean mixture and chicken in a cooked flour tortilla. Top with cheese and sour cream. Fold into a burrito and enjoy!

I'm telling you...these are great. It usually becomes a family favorite with those who try them. Let me know what you think. We would love to hear.
