Using a grill basket or grill topper, if necessary, grill vegetables, turning occasionally, until softened and lightly charred, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer onions to a platter. Transfer peppers to a cutting board and cut into thin strips; transfer to the platter with onions.

    Grill tortillas until warm and lightly browned, about 30 seconds per side. Wrap in foil to keep warm. Slice chicken breasts into 1⁄2-inch-thick pieces. Place on the platter with vegetables and serve with warmed tortillas.
