1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeño peppers, drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders (about 14 pieces)
Cooking spray
8 (8-inch) 98%-fat-free flour tortillas
1 cup shredded lettuce

Combine first 6 ingredients in a blender or food processor; process until blended.

Place cilantro mixture and chicken pieces in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal bag, and shake to coat chicken. Marinate in refrigerator 8 hours.

Prepare grill.

Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until done.

Chop chicken and divide chicken evenly among tortillas. Top each with 2 tablespoons shredded lettuce, 2 tablespoons chopped tomatoes, 1 tablespoon cheese, and 1 tablespoon sour cream. Fold bottom half of each tortilla over filling.
