For pure simplicity, I choose to slice the chicken breasts and the veggies prior to marinating, left them to chill together for 2 hours and after draining, grilled them all together. The taste was still great. Although, in the future, after preparing the chicken, salsa, cheese and sour cream in the tortilla, I will put them in the oven a couple minutes to warm up because I found they cooled down quite a bit by the time they were placed on the table to be served. Otherwise, Prima!

We used chicken tenders and grilled them slow. They were very tender and had a little kick to them. One of my husbands favorite meals.
