    PaulaG's Note:

    I haven't actually tried this recipe. It comes from The Well-Filled Tortilla Cookbook which was a Christmas gift. I have tried several of the dishes from the book and all have been good. Now that summer is here, I can do these on the grill.

      Between 2 sheets of wax paper, flatten chicken breasts 1 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness using heavy saucer or other pounding device.

      The sesame seeds were an unexpected pleasure. I made them on my grill pan and will certainly make these again.

      I really, really liked these and if you don't bbq them, they are so quick to make that they are just perfect for a weeknight dinner. I used my George Foreman grill to do the chicken as we didn't have the weather for a bbq. I only used the suggested fillings and loved all the fresh and 'clean' flavours, they went really well together and there weren't too many different flavours going on at the same time. Definitely a keeper! :D
