Spread each flour tortilla with 2 tablespoons cream cheese.

In small bowl, combine chicken, shredded cheese, bell pepper and onion, if desired.

Evenly divide chicken mixture over each of 4 tortillas. Top with remaining flour tortillas. Lightly spray both sides of each quesadilla with nonstick cooking spray. Place quesadillas onto baking sheets.

Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden brown, turning once half-way through heating.

Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with sour cream, guacamole, salsa and lettuce.

"This is always requested by my kids when we have leftover chicken. I don't mix the chicken, cheese and veggies together since they like these without the onions and peppers."
