Southwest chicken wrap

A patient of mine shared this recipe with me a couple of weeks ago and it has become a favorite! It is very easy to make and is so flavorful. Use different varieties of salsa for different flavors.

I only use two chicken breasts in this recipe. The original called for four, however you can see there is plenty of chicken!

We made wraps with this southwest chicken. It is great leftover too!
