Chicken Burritos



1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
flour tortillas
one small onion, sliced in half rounds
1 15-1/2 ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
3-4 ears of corn, cooked
2 jalapeños, sliced, seeds removed or kept (depending on how hot you like it)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
