I used some left over chapatti's instead of the tortillas.

Was easy recipe - I cooked the chicken breast first and then continued with the recipe as described.

Quick easy and tasty

God this is good!! Perfect way to use up chicken left overs, bags of flavour. I used med style wraps that I found in Tesco instead of using coriander.
