Authentic SF-style burrito with CHICKEN BREAST?

Hi everyone.

Things I like:

—SF-style burritos (especially super burritos)
—Taquera La Bamba in Mountain View
—High quality ingredients
—Chicken breast

Things I don't like:

—Most SoCal burritos
—Chipotle (white rice in a burrito just isn't right)
—Chicken thigh (too greasy for me; I know it has its supporters, but let's leave politics out of this)

QUESTION — Where in the South Bay/Peninsula can I get a great SF-style burrito made with chicken breast? Some places say they do chicken breast, but it's some gross white meat dark meat combo. Americans love chicken breast; it's a fact. I feel like some "authentic" Mexican taqueria has compromised its authenticity on this point to create an awesome chicken breast burrito. Has anyone found it? (Hint: it's not at La Bamba. Came away very disappointed the other day. Usually have to get veggie or carnitas there and it's just not as fun.)


La Bamba
2058 Old Middlefield Way, Mountain View, CA 94043
