Lj's Healthy version of Chicken Burrito's

I am always looking for healthier homemade options, here is a lower fat version of Chicken Burrito's everyone will love. There are lots of Burrito Seasoning Recipes on the internet. I have tried and tested a few of the powdered versions but prefer to use fresh, chilli/onion and garlic. 


Ingredients:

500 Grams Chicken breast diced
1 White Onion finely diced
1/2 Small hot Chilli deseeded and finely diced or more if you like it hotter
1 Clove of fresh garlic finely diced or crushed
1 Tablespoon of Cumin and Paprika
3 Tablespoons of No Fat Jalna Natural Yoghurt and a little extra for serving
Homemade Salsa to serve (Recipe Below)
Lettuce
Low fat Grated Cheese
Lite Mission Wraps (about 1/5 of the fat in the plain ones)

For the Salsa:
Finely dice a White Onion, 1/2 Red Capsicum, 1 clove finely diced
or crushed fresh Garlic, 4 Fresh ripe Roma Tomatoes, 1/2 Teas of Himalayan Salt
Throw in a saucepan and simmer  until soft and then cool down before serving. 

What to do:

Heat a frying pan and add a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add the Onion, Garlic, Chilli and saute for a few minutes. Add the Cumin and Paprika and stir to combine. Cook off for a few more minutes to infuse the flavours. Add the chicken, giving it a good mix to coat with the flavouring. Add about 1/4 cup of water and turn down the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked. Add the Yoghurt and give it a good stir to combine. The Yoghurt tames down the Chilli and just gives it a delicious flavour. Simmer on low  until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes on low.

Heat the Mission wraps for 30 Seconds in the microwave and serve. I have layered the lettuce, chicken, grated cheese, a little bit of salsa and a bit of the yoghurt, rolled it up and hooked straight in..
YUM!
