Mojo Chicken Tortilla Burger is crazy delicious and served in a new fun way ~ in a folded over Tortilla ! The perfect light dinner or lunch and kids love this burger !
I had an extra bag of Tortillas the other day and I always have Chicken in the freezer.
As we did not really need anything from the supermarket that day, I used what I had on hand, and came up with this Mojo Chicken Tortilla Burger.
It was crazy delicious ! The Chicken turned out juicy, tender and with a light hint of citrus.
Dinner was on the table in less than 30 minutes which suits me just fine, as I hate spending time in my kitchen during the Winter months.
My kitchen is always cold in Winter and always (extremely!) hot during the Summer months.
The only time I actually enjoy being in the kitchen when it is cold, is when my oven is on and at least 2 or 3 plates on the gas stove.
Anyhow, I am going off-topic here. I sliced the Tortillas in half and then placed each half on top of one another, because simply folding the Tortillas over, did not work that well and I also did not want a wrap kind of thing.
This Burger is delicious served warm or cold and is therefore great to make in advance or to take on a picnic.
