Shredded Chicken Keto Burritos with Joseph's Lavash Bread

April 15, 2019

Yesterday I talked about my favorite low carb sliced bread. Today I'm going to talk about my favorite low carb wrap bread. There are a few out there. And I'll write posts about them later but I just wanted to mention my FAVORITE one today. It's Joseph's Flax Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread. Get it on Amazon here. I'm able to find these easily at most grocery stores even Walmart. It's only 5g net carbs per serving.
One serving is half of a large sheet. I honestly don't know why they don't sell them cut in half to begin with. But you can see it's a pretty large sheet. You can cut one in half and have more than enough for a burrito. In fact you can probably cut one in 1/4th and have enough for a small burrito.

I make these shredded chicken keto burritos and they are SO satisfying! They almost always hit the spot when I'm hungry. When I make them I make about 6 servings at once and save the rest of the shredded chicken mix in a pyrex container for later. The next day it's such a treat to have a quick delicious lunch without much work. This stuff is PERFECT in a pinch.

Here's my personal burrito recipe.

Serves 6

2lbs of chicken breast
2 red peppers
1 large onion
olive oil
fajita mix packet
shredded cheddar cheese
Joseph's Lavash Bread

Cook your chicken breast in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes (thawed), 25 minutes (frozen). If you don't have a pressure cooker you can also cook your chicken breast by putting it in a large pot, filling the pot with water 1" over the chicken, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes.

While your chicken is cooking, cut your peppers and onion. Then sautee them with olive oil until caramelized.

Once you have cooked your chicken, take it out of your pot and shred in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment. I've found that shredding in your stand mixer is the fastest and easiest way to shred chicken. Seriously, if you've never tried it, it's going to blow your chicken mind!!

Add in 3tsp of your fajita mix packet and mix to incorporate.

Then turn off your heat on your stove and add your shredded chicken to your peppers and onions and mix. Then sprinkle in your shredded cheese a few minutes before you plan to serve and mix it well so that the cheese is melted.

Cut one of the Lavash Bread sheets in half and place in oven at 400 for 3 minutes to warm up. Then remove and transfer to a plate and place a line of your chicken mix at one short end. Then roll the Lavash bread to form at burrito.

Voila! Done. Enjoy your low carb burrito!! Save the rest for the next day and enjoy the same thing without all the work:-)
