Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

Provided By
A mexican favorite that the kids will even love. Use rotisserie chicken from the store to create in a snap. Serve with spanish rice on the side for a complete meal. These quesadillas also make a great appetizer.

  • In a medium non-stick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
  • Add onions and cook until translucent, 8-10 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of butter in the same skillet and melt over medium heat. Add the bell peppers and cook just until slightly softened. Remove from heat.
  • Using a large grill pan, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Assemble quesadillas by placing desired fillings (chicken, onion/pepper mixture, cilantro, spinach and cheese) to cover the tortilla. Place a second tortilla over the top.
  • Using a wide spatula, carefully place in the prepared skillet. Cook 3-5 minutes or until slightly browned. Carefully turn over and cook on second side until slightly browned.
  • Remove from skillet and place on a plate. Cut in half and then cut each half into 3 triangles. Serve with Pico de Gallo, sour cream and any other desired Mexican fixings.

"Great quesadillas! We all loved them and everyone kind of put on what they liked. Some left off the cilantro and spinach; while some didn't add onions (I cooked the onions separate). I made the Pico de Gallo Salsa and the Simple Guacamole to serve with them."
