Really Delicious Chicken Quesadillas

16 Oct

So last night I took a shot at my very first homemade quesadillas… and they were a success! I’m always looking for new ways to spice up dinner, and these definintly hit the spot…

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 frozen chicken breasts
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp diced garlic
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 bag of Mexican-Fiesta Blend cheese
  • canola oil (or butter)
  • to taste: chili powder (I used about 1 tbsp), oregano (I used about 1 tbsp), salt (I used about 1 tsp), and ground pepper (I used about 1 tsp)
  • Salsa and Sour Cream

What You’ll Do:

  • Thaw the chicken breasts, and cut up into bite size pieces
  • In a large skillet, toss together 1 tbsp of canola oil, chicken, onions, garlic, and spices over medium heat. Stir until the chicken is cooked all the way through, and add in mushrooms. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Warm up a large skillet or grittle (shown above), and lightly grease (or butter) 1 whole tortilla.
  • Place tortilla onto the griddle (it should sizzle!) and top with the skillet mixture and a heaping handful (or two!) of cheese. Place another tortilla on top, and lightly grease or butter the outside layer.
  • After about 2 minutes, check the bottom of the tortilla. If it’s a crunchy golden brown, use a large spatula to flip it onto the other side.
  • Once both sides are a crispy golden brown, remove from heat and use a pizza cutter to slice into quarters. repeat this process with the remaining skillet mixture and tortillas.
  • Top with sour cream and salsa, and enjoy!

    note: these ended up being huge… I think next time I make them I will try shredding the chicken! but nevertheless… they tasted amazing! 🙂
