Preheat oven to 350°. Spray two 13x9 in. baking pans with cooking oil and spread half of the reserved sauce (minus chicken) in each baking pan.
Put a portion of chicken mixture in each tortilla and roll, placing them in the pan side by side. (I quickly dip each tortilla in boiling water before rolling so they don't break)
