Asian Style Chicken Roll Up

When you are feeling inspired after binge watching the Food Network Channel, you want something light and healthy, then why not make these Asian Style Chicken Roll Ups.

I made this meal for a week night dinner because I was in the mood for some Asian flavor and did not want my food to be greasy or oily. What I did know is, I wanted to make a chicken roll up and it could not be filled with cheese or bread crumbs. So, the best option for me is to use Asian flavor and pair it with vegetables and chicken. (Served with a salad, of course!)
