    Spicy Orange Chicken Burrito

    This Spicy Orange Chicken Burrito is just that thanks to bright and tangy orange juice, pan fried chicken thighs and fresh cherry chile pepper.


    Ingredients
    1 1/2
    tablespoons
    coconut oil
    4
    chicken thighs, fresh or thawed
    1/2
    orange, juiced
    1/2
    cherry chile pepper, minced
    *
    salt and pepper to taste
    2
    large burrito tortillas, warm
    2/3
    cup
    wild rice, cooked and warm
    1/4
    cup
    Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
    2
    tablespoons
    fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
    Directions
    In a dutch oven on medium heat melt coconut oil. Pan fry chicken thighs for 12-15 minutes per side, until golden, crisp and cooked through. Set aside to cool.
    Meanwhile, in a bowl combine orange juice and minced chile pepper.
    Remove meat from bones and pick out and discard cartilage. Roughly chop chicken thighs and add to orange chile mixture. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    Using 1 tortilla at a time, add 1/3 cup of rice to center. Top with half of spicy orange chicken mixture, 2 tablespoons of cheese and a tablespoon of cilantro, then wrap up. Repeat with remaining tortilla and ingredients.
    Serve burrito with salsa, sour cream or any other favorite toppings.
