I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Honey Baked Chicken Burritos

This is a must-share recipe! Using store bought rotisserie chicken saves a bunch of time and I wasn't sure about the amount of honey used but it totally works!

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded (about 3 cups)
10 - 6" flour tortillas
1/4 cup lime juice
1/3 cup honey
4-6 tsps minced garlic
1 tbsp chili powder
2 cups shredded jalapeño Monterey Jack cheese, divided
2 cups salsa, divided (you pick the heat!)
1/4 cup sour cream
fresh chopped parsley and/or cilantro to garnish
2 cups cooked lime rice (see below for recipe)

Lime Rice:
1/2 cup white rice
2 tbsps lime juice
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 tsp garlic powder
handful of chopped parsley and/or cilantro
1 cup canned black beans

Prepare the lime rice. Mix the white rice, lime juice, chicken broth and garlic powder together and bring to a boil. Then cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Add the parsley/cilantro and black beans and set aside.

Whisk 1 cup salsa and 1/4 cup sour cream together for the sauce and set aside.

Take a cooked grocery store rotisserie chicken and remove the meat from the bones. I actually had enough meat for this recipe without using the legs and saved them for another meal! Shred the meat with a fork. Whisk the lime juice, honey, minced garlic and chili powder together then toss with the chicken.

Warm the tortillas and lay out on a work surface. Spoon rice/bean mixture on one side and the chicken on the other side in the center distributing evenly between 10 tortillas. Take 1 cup of shredded cheese and sprinkle some on each.

Take about 3 tbsps of salsa and spread on the bottom of a 13 X 9" baking dish. Roll up each tortilla and place in the dish seam side down. Spoon on the sauce then top with the remaining 1 cup shredded cheese.

Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes and finish with a couple of minutes under the broiler.

Add chopped parsley/cilantro and serve with sour cream and the remaining salsa. Olé!
