Ingredients

  • 2 ears corn, shucked and kernels removed (about 1 1/2 cups kernels) (you can also use frozen corn that's been thawed)
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks (can also use chicken breasts)
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • Feta sauce (recipe below)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped parsley

Feta Sauce

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Once melted, add corn kernels and let sit for about 4 minutes before stirring. Let sit for another 4 minutes and stir again. Repeat a couple more times until the corn is nicely browned. Remove corn to a separate bowl. Gently wipe and keep skillet/grill pan out for later use.
  • In a medium bowl, toss chicken with chili powder, dried parsley, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, and salt to coat well.
  • Heat a skillet/grill pan to medium heat and add olive oil. Add chicken to skillet and cook until chicken is fully cooked, 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. 
  • Lay a tortilla on a flat surface and top with about 1/4 cup grilled corn, 1/4 of the chicken, 4-5 slices of avocado, a scoop of feta sauce, and chopped parsley. Fold the sides and ends of the tortilla over the filling and roll up.
  • Once again wipe out the skillet/grill pan used for the chicken. Place burritos seam-side down in pan over medium heat and cook for about 2-3 minutes until lightly browned. Flip and cook on the other side for another 2 minutes. Serve burritos with additional feta sauce.

Feta Sauce

  • In a medium bowl, stir all ingredients together until well combined. Keep in fridge until ready to use.
