Rotisserie Chicken Veggie Burritos

A delicious way to enjoy store bought rotisserie chicken!


During my weekly grocery trips I usually purchase an in-store made rotisserie chicken. While it makes for a quick and easy supper, I’ve been trying to find fresh new ways to enjoy it!

I’ve made the burritos using both shredded and cubed chicken breast – either work but I find the shredded allows for easier folding and eating. These can get messy!

rotisserie chicken vegetable burrito


  • rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1  yellow pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup white onion, finely chopped
  • jalapenos (optional!)
  • 1/2 lime (zest & juice)
  • sour cream (plain greek yogurt) & salsa for dipping

1. Start by prepping your ingredients – shred the chicken, grate the cheese and cube the avocado

2. Mix up your veggie salsa – finely chop the pepper, tomatoes, onion, jalapenos (optional!) and add in the juice from half a lime along with salt & pepper

3. Have your skillet on medium-low heat and add in 1-2 tsp of olive oil. You want the burrito to brown slowly so all of the cheese melts – if the temperature is too high, the tortilla will crisp up before your cheese melts

4. Create your burrito – start with a thin layer of chicken along the middle of the tortilla, add a handful of cheese, a few scoops of the veggie salsa and top with a few pieces of avocado

5. Fold one side over the centre, tuck in the sides and roll. Place seam side down into your skillet and let it brown, 3-4 minutes. Flip!

6. Once the burrito is browned on both sides, remove from heat and cut through the middle. Add salsa and sour cream or plain greek yogurt for dipping!

Any leftover burritos can be stored in the fridge and eaten the next day. Simply warm up in the microwave. The tortilla may loose a little of it’s integrity but the flavour is amazing!
