Chicken Roll with Salsa and Onions

Chicken rollLast week I did an experiment with some boneless chicken left in my refrigerator. My both kids loved this recipe too much. It's inspired from a similar Mexican variant, but I've done some local changes to satisfy the taste buds of my 3 kids (3rd one is my hubby). It came out very well and vanished within 5 minutes from the plate. I've used classic corn tortillas for making this yummy preparation, but you can substitute it with local flat bread if the corn version is not available in your locality. You can also substitute chicken with mushrooms or cottage cheese to make a vegetarian version. Let's see how to make these easy, tangy and scrumptious chicken rolls which are perfect for snack time or breakfast.
