    hxnnxh's Note:

    I made up this recipe for a friend in my cross country running club, inspired by my chicken burrito recipe. We usually have dinner with a few at my place before evening practice. My friend was on a diet that didn't allow fats, bread/tortillas and white rice so I made this recipe with brown rice, lots of vegetables and chicken. It was an instant hit and proved to be a great pre-running meal. I had to share the recipe with all my running pals and now I am ready to share it with y'all!!
