Crazy Paul's Chicken Jamboree

This is Paul's favorite food on the planet, which is why it was named for him. It uses the Shish Kabob Marinade as a base, but instead of using it to grill, it's reduced in a saucepan and used as a sauce. I didn't come up with the name, but somehow the name just stuck, so there ya have it. Maybe sometime Paul will tell everyone the PROPER way to eat chicken jamboree. So funny!

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
1 large onion, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, sliced

Shish Kabob Marinade:
1 8oz bottle Wishbone Regular Italian Dressing
2 tbs brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce

flour tortillas, burrito size
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream

In a large skillet, place sliced onions and peppers and a little oil. Saute over medium heat until they begin to soften. Meanwhile cut chicken into small bite sized pieces. Add chicken to the skillet and saute until the chicken is almost but not all the way cooked through. Remove everything from the skillet and set aside in a large bowl.
Add marinade to skillet and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and let it reduce by about half, stirring frequently. During this process be careful not to inhale too closely to the steam because the spices will punch you in the sinuses! After the sauce is reduced, add the chicken, peppers, and onions back into the skillet and toss to coat. Remove from skillet when chicken is cooked all the way through.
Warm flour tortillas in the microwave for about 10 seconds or covered in a warm oven. Spoon some jamboree onto the center of a tortilla, then top with sour cream and cheddar cheese. Fold up the tortilla and enjoy!
Paul? would you like to add anything?

Hey, it's me, Paul. Yes, THAT Paul! You've reached the best dish on the site - so congratulations and enjoy your goodeats. But first, you MUST add to your CPCJ recipe the "how to" of EATING it: 1) Load up your first tortilla in any delicious way you want and eat it REALLY fast. 2) QUICKLY wrap up another one and start eating it as well. 3) Halfway through the 2nd tortilla, STOP! Now breathe a BIG, satisfied, sigh of relief and happiness. 4) Following completion of your 2nd tortilla, casually meander over to the pan on the stove and pick at the rest of the deliciousness until you're very very full. MMMMM... LOVE it... SOOO good. Man, I want some now. Note: If anyone catches you eating from the pan, freeze in place, give them a surprised, blank stare and say, "Nothing," as though they asked what you were doing. Thanks!
