How to make Oven Crisped Burritos with Shredded Chicken Recipe
To begin making the Oven Crisped Burritos we will make the Homemade Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas, combine the flour, salt and olive oil together in a large mixing bowl.
Gradually knead the dough adding a little water at a time until the dough comes together and becomes smooth and elastic.
Knead well for about 5 minutes, Rest the dough until you make the stuffing.
Heat a skillet with oil, add chicken pieces and fry them till they turn light brown. Add about 1/2 cup water and cook the chicken in the water covered for about 10 minutes until all the water evaporates and you are left crispy brown chicken.
Take them out and start shredding into small pieces. In the same skillet add some more oil and start sautéing onions, garlic, bell peppers and once it softens add the shredded chicken.
You can add in your spice powders and check for salt and add accordingly. The stuffing needs to be cooked for 5 more minutes and you can turn it off.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius to 10 minutes and start to make the burrito pockets.
Divide the dough into small portions and shape them into balls.
Flatten these balls with the palm of your hand. Take a portion of the dough, toss it on the flour and roll out into thin circles to approximately 4 inches in diameter.
As you roll them out, you can keep tossing the dough in dry flour while rolling; this will prevent it from getting sticky when rolling them out.
Keep a bowl of glass next to you for sealing, spoon out the stuffing and place it in the center. Dip some water and coat it over the sides of the circle. Fold in from either side. And seal the securely.
To close both ends, you need to dab some water again and fold it inside and press it carefully so that it seals. Do the same for the other side as well. Repeat the process for rest of the burritos.
Grease out a tray with olive oil and then place these burritos and bake them for about 15 minutes until they crisp up.
