Chicken Burritos (Chipotle Inspired Weeknight Meal)

We love Chipotle, but eating out can get expensive, and isn't necessarily always the healthiest option. I did a little Googling to find a yummy Chipotle knock-off rice dish, and doctored up my own burrito recipe for those nights when we want a tasty Mexican-ish meal, but don't want to eat out. This recipe for Chipotle Inspired Burritos is a tasty one dish meal!
