This week’s recipe is: Orange Chicken Burritos
Serve these up with some brown rice or a mixed salad for an easy weeknight meal. The orange flavour is fresh tasting and a great match to the hearty chicken and beans.
Makes 8 small tortillas. 
5 mL (1 tsp) canola oil 
500 g (1 lb) extra lean ground chicken 
4 cloves garlic, minced 
45 mL (3 tbsp) chopped fresh coriander 
15 mL (1 tbsp) chili powder 
5 mL (1 tsp) ground cumin 
25 mL (2 tbsp) cornstarch 
375 mL (1 ½ cups) Florida Orange Juice 
1 can (540 mL/19 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed 
1 L (4 cups) baby spinach, lightly packed 
1 pkg (272 g) 18 cm (7 inch) whole grain tortillas 
1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet, over medium high heat and cook chicken, garlic, coriander, chili powder and cumin for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink inside. 
2. Whisk cornstarch into orange juice and stir into skillet with black beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Add spinach and cook for 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. 
3. Divide mixture along centre of tortillas and roll or fold up. 
See what our Chef #1, JEN of Trend Watch, had to say: 
I’ll be honest, this is the recipe that had me most nervous. At first I wasn’t convinced about the combination of chicken, orange, black beans and spinach. This isn’t typically what my family thinks of when I tell them that we are having burritos! 
However, not only did this recipe make me, it won over my parents and sisters, and has earned a place in my family cookbook. Everyone liked them, even the pickier eaters who sometimes have complaints about beans! 
The tangy orange juice complemented the fresh chopped coriander, and the mild flavour of the ground chicken allowed the spices to stand out. I served this with tortillas for dinner and my husband took the meat filling as leftovers for next time. This recipe’s a keeper! 
See what our Chef #2, GAV of Chef Dad, had to say: 
I’ll have to admit, when I heard we’d be making orange-flavoured burritos I was pretty skeptical. I’m usually a pretty good judge of recipes and this one did not initially pique my interest. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! 
They were super simple to cook and assemble, were absolutely delicious and took no time at all! In the same way orange works perfectly in Chinese cooking, this recipe worked from start to finish. The flavours were fresh and married together perfectly. We will definitely be making this one again – it was a big hit with all ages in our family. This did not bother my girls, who can get iffy about textures when it comes to foods. They loved the taste. 
Although my wife said the recipe was missing something (maybe a hint of salt and pepper to kick it up a little bit?), she really liked them. She even ate some for lunch the next day, and that’s really saying a lot! 
I am really looking forward to serving this one when we have friends over!
