Mojo Chicken Tortilla 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.

  2. Remove the Chicken from the marinade container – grill/bake or fry the Chicken, basting regularly with the leftover marinade until fully cooked
TO FINISH:
  1. Meanwhile, place the two halves of each Tortilla on top of each other – spread the top half with 1 TB Salad Dressing – add Lettuce, then Tomato to one half of the stacked Tortillas – top with a cooked Chicken Fillet
  2. Sprinkle the Pineapple with the Brown Sugar – grill or fry the Pineapple until just scorched (about 1 minute over high heat)
  3. Place a Pineapple ring on top of the Chicken – fold over the other half of the double Tortilla and serve
