How about slices?

Instead of leaving the chicken breast whole, and placing in the tortilla, why not slice it up and saute' it with onions, peppers, etc. And then add slices and veggies in the tortilla with the cilanto sauce. I haven't tried the recipe, but just looking at it made me want to change it a little. It does sound very good the way it is. Just thinking it might be a little easier to eat.
