Chicken breast: Diced, boneless chicken breast is marinated with cumin and Ranch and makes the chicken extra tender and flavorful. Juicy chicken is cooked and folded in the tortilla with all the other fresh ingredients.
Ranch dressing: Creamy Ranch dressing coats the chicken and makes it extra appetizing. You can make your own Ranch dressing or use storebought. Both options are delicious!
Cumin: Aromatic cumin gives the chicken a little kick and gives it the seasoning it needs. We love adding cumin to the chicken for its flavors.
Oil: Neutral olive oil is heated in the skillet until hot to cook the chicken. Any kind of cooking oil will work for this chicken avocado burrito sandwich.
Tortillas: We like to use burrito tortillas to wrap the chicken because they are big and soft. Anything smaller may result in the burritos not being properly wrapped. You can use whole wheat burritos for more fiber.
Avocado: Freshly sliced avocado is layered throughout the chicken and other fresh ingredients for soft textures and extra fiber.
Mozzarella: Shredded mozzarella is packed throughout the chicken and avocado Ranch wraps and melts until gooey and cheesy once the burrito has been toasted.
Parsley: Freshly chopped parsley provides extra fresh flavors and highlights this recipe. We highly recommend using fresh parsley.
Green onions: Sliced green onions are pungent and robust in flavor and provide extra fresh notes to the chicken wrap.

How to Make This Chicken Ranch Burrito Recipe

First, measure all of the ingredients so they are easy to grab and accessible. Next, place the diced chicken together with half of the ranch and the cumin into a large bowl.

Stir all of the ingredients together with a rubber spatula or spoon, then allow the chicken to marinate for 20 minutes while resting on the counter.

Next, heat the oil in a large skillet until hot. Cook the chicken in a single layer until evenly cooked and browned on both sides.

Divide the cooked chicken among the four burrito tortillas. Make sure to arrange the chicken in the centers of the tortillas.

Next, top the chicken with avocado, shredded mozzarella, fresh parsley, and green onions. Roll the tortillas and cook in a preheated pan over medium-low heat. This will take from three to four minutes.

Remove the wraps once they are golden, then serve immediately or place in the refrigerator until ready to heat. Enjoy!
