Teriyaki Chicken Burritos

These are the best! And so easy!!
Amounts depend on how much you want to serve.
2-4 Chicken breasts
2 Avocados, chopped
3 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
1 C Shredded Mozzarella
6-8 Large flour tortillas
1-2 C Teriyaki sauce (if you live near Wegmans, get their Asian Classics Teriyaki Sauce. It is the best).

Slice chicken and place in baggie with teriyaki sauce and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Prepare chicken by desired method with marinade. I usually boil the chicken, but broiled or grilled would do, as long as you marinate the chicken longer.

When chicken is fully cooked remove from marinade and shred with two forks.

On a skillet or grill pan, toast the tortillas individually and melt desired amount of mozzarella on the tortilla to desired toasty-ness.

Remove toasted tortilla from skillet and place on a dinner plate.

Dish up desired amount of chicken, avocado, and tomato onto tortilla.

Fold, and eat immediately.
