Recipe - Mexicana Chicken

This is a really quick and easy one is from Symply Too Good To Be True, Book 3.  The picture in the book shows the chicken served in a shaped tortilla made from a tortilla baked (10 mins in 180 degree oven) pressed into a dessert bowl.  We don't bother with making these, we either have it in a wrap with salad or served on a bed of shredded lettuce.  Can be served with sour cream and/or avocado.
Serves 6 if we serve in a wrap with salad.
Serves 4 if served on salad only.
