The best frozen chicken burrito is filling, well-seasoned, and filled with tons of chicken. And I’m here to report that your local grocery store is absolutely swamped with delicious choices!
This was one of my favorite taste tests yet. Typically after a taste test, I’m not interested in eating the food we tasted for quite some time. Not frozen chicken burritos, though! The six frozen chicken burritos on this list are so delicious I would happily eat them all again in one sitting. Even the frozen chicken burritos that didn’t make our list were still tasty. Why are you still reading this intro?! Keep scrolling, jot these down, and then go to the grocery store ASAP. You’re having a frozen chicken burrito for dinner tonight!
- Jose Ole
This is the simplest frozen chicken burrito we tried and we loved it. It has cheese and beans and chicken. It’s not doing anything different, but it’s doing it all well. It’s gooey and savory and absolutely delicious. You could get one of these from a cart after a night out and you would be thrilled. I’m glad Jose Ole makes it so we can all have that experience at home.

- Red’s Organic Cilantro & Lime Chicken Burrito
This burrito exploded a little while cooking, exposing the insides to me before I was able to taste it. Sadly, the filling in this burrito looks like it would taste like a sock. It appears to be filled almost exclusively white rice. When you taste it, however, it’s a totally different story. This thing has big salsa verde vibes. It’s tangy, bright, and wonderfully gooey inside. There’s plenty of chicken. It’s like they always say, “Don’t judge a frozen chicken burrito by its filling.”

- Red’s Grilled Chicken & Cheddar Burrito
My favorite thing about the Red’s Grilled Chicken & Cheddar Burrito is that the chicken actually tastes grilled, which I think is really impressive! Did they actually grill it? I always assume products sold as “grilled” are just artificially flavored with “grill” flavor, but this tastes authentically of grill. I also loved the hearty amount of cheese throughout this frozen chicken burrito. I wasn’t sure about cheddar in a burrito, but I love being surprised by food. Real cheese lovers will love Red’s frozen chicken burrito.

- Trader Joe’s Chicken Burritos
Buy a frozen chicken burrito every single time you go to Trader Joe’s because they are the best things Trader Joe’s sells. These chicken burritos taste so much more delicious than most other frozen chicken burritos out there and I’ll tell you why: They use dark meat. It makes these burritos one hundred times more savory and delicious. It’s good that Trader Joe’s frozen chicken burritos come in packs of two because you definitely want at least two at a time.

- Artisan Bistro Chicken Burrito
I would never have purchased this because of the packaging and name. It looks and sounds like something you’d find in a freezer. I so desperately want Artisan Bistro to work on their marketing and image because their frozen chicken burrito absolutely rules. The chunks of chicken are by far the biggest chicken chunks in any frozen chicken burrito on the market. The filling is cheesy and warm and flavorful. This is another perfect frozen chicken burrito.

- Trader Joe’s Chicken Chili Verde Burritos
Trader Joe’s does it again! The frozen chicken burritos are so unbelievably good and this chili verde version of the Trader Joe’s frozen chicken burrito takes our top spot. It’s zesty, bright, salty, meaty, and just downright great. I could and would happily eat one of these a day for the rest of my life and not get tired of them. I’m 100% sure of it. If you buy one thing from Trader Joe’s, it should be these. They’re the best frozen chicken burritos you can buy.
