Chicken Burritos (or tostadas)

We love Mexican at our house (my husbands fav) so I am always looking for new Mexican dishes. I originally found this recipe at your home based mom then tweaked it slightly.  The original recipe was for tostadas but we like it for burritos. Eiher way they are yummy. The chicken would be great in a salad or just grilled too.

chicken marinade:  (enough for 6 chicken breasts)
6 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
juice from 1 large lemon
3 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 c. brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. salt

combine together and add chicken. marinate several hours (I do it overnight)

Bake or grill chicken. While chicken is cooking bake some refried beans topped with cheese for 10-15 minutes at 350 until cheese starts to bubble.

 Shred or slice chicken. Spread bean mixture and chicken onto tortilla then top with your favorite burrito toppings. I like them with salsa, lettuce and avocado if I have any.
