Chicken Wrap Salsa

Eating lean meat involves a lot of positive sides; chicken, therefore, if added in your regular diet accounts for good health. Chicken contains a host of essential nutrients required for the maintenance of your body like vitamin D, iron, zinc, B-6 and B-12. However, the hide or skin of the chicken carries a large amount of body fat and hence it is wise to have chicken without skin. Besides, the liver though packed with vitamins is high in cholesterol content especially in LDL (bad cholesterol). Needless to say that anyone having a sickness from cholesterol should religiously avoid eating chicken liver.

Anyway, in the recipe below I am not using chicken liver at all or skin. Rest assured that this dish is not going to make any adverse effect on your health.
