Healthy Chicken Burritos are served with whole wheat wraps. An easy dinner all made in the slow cooker.
Gas station burritos! Confused much? You should be, but let me explain. There is this AMAZING authentic Mexican place by my work. It makes the best burritos, tacos, and my favorite chicken tortilla soup EVER. There is only one small catch… it’s INSIDE a gas station! Sketchville much? Not one bit, and the line out the door might be a giveaway.
Seriously though, how could you not love super authentic Mexican food you can pick up while you're also filling up your gas tank? One thing I always gravitate towards on the menu is their shredded chicken burritos. The chicken! It's SO tender, so flavorful. Every bite makes me happy.
Don’t get me wrong, I get my fill at this place, but sometimes I’m craving some seriously tender chicken on the weekends when I’m nowhere near work. So what’s a girl to do? Fire up the slow cooker and make the most tender chicken around!
I’m not so sure why I fought the slow cooker for so long. I guess it’s because I typically like my meats JUST barley cooked, rare for me please! So the thought of something stewing for HOURS… no thanks. But I take back all the nasty things I said about the slow cooker, this kitchen gadget may be my new best friend for no-prep meals!
Toss three things in the pot, cover, cook, done, CHOW! I did this on a Sunday when I was too busy running around with errands, doing laundry, and generally getting myself into trouble to spend hours in the kitchen. I got home and dinner was ready and waiting for us. The only down side, you ask? I think it drove my dog bonkers having to smell chicken cooking all day… sorry pup!!
