Chicken with Mango Salsa

I marinated some chicken fillets for my vietnamese springrolls but they never made it there. The fillets ended up in my wrap which I had it with mango salsa *yums* The mango salsa was inspired by a show featuring caribbean cuisine.

This is a truly no fuss dish, the wraps were store bought and the mangoes were juicy and sweet.

The filling before wrapping

I've been looking for a nice mango salsa recipe after eating some at my Indonesian friend's house. I think this is it. Thanks for the recipe and the wrap looks delicious! Can't wait to try it! ^_^
