  • Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pepper strips; cook and stir until crisp-tender; remove from pan.

  • Add chicken to pan. Cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Stir in corn; heat through. Combine the reserved marinade and cornstarch; add to chicken mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Return pepper strips to skillet; stir to combine.

  • Wrap tortillas in microwave-safe paper towels. Microwave on High for 45 to 60 seconds or until warm. Divide the chicken mixture among tortillas and top with sour cream. Fold the tortillas over chicken mixture.
