1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


4 (5-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch strips

1 medium onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas or 4 pita breads, cut in half, warmed


Shredded Cheddar cheese
Sour cream

Combine all marinade ingredients in large resealable plastic food bag; add chicken strips. Tightly seal bag. Turn bag several times to coat chicken. Place bag into 13x9-inch pan. Refrigerate, turning occasionally, at least 3 hours or overnight. Drain chicken; discard marinade.

Serve chicken mixture in warm tortillas with toppings, as desired.

The recipe was very tasty. We cut down the marinade time by using our Food Saver--Marinator (30 minutes). Added mexican rice as a side item.
