I thawed chicken for dinner but just wasn’t feeling like cooking. At all. So I decided to throw together some chicken & cheese quesadillas. I wasn’t going to blog them because I was like “who needs a recipe for a quesadilla?” but then I googled it & it turns out, lots of people do. So maybe I’ll help someone out that’s having a quesadilla craving. I’m sure you could add onions and peppers (grown up ingredients) to give even more flavor. Those things tend to give me heartburn so I kept it simple.
salsa (I always use Herdez)
Heat your pan with a turn of EVOO.
Season your chicken and cut into small chunks. Add to EVOO coated pan and cook over medium heat until no longer pink.
Warm another frying pan over medium heat & lay a tortilla in the bottom. Let it get warm. Then, sprinkle chicken chunks and cheese on top. Let it get melty before you add the second tortilla or else it won’t stick. Also, don’t get impatient & try to flip your quesadilla over too soon because if it’s not melted you’ll lose the insides. It’ll be sad.
That’s it. Cut it into fours and serve with whatever garnishes you like – I chose sour cream & salsa.
