Chicken quesadillas are one of my favourite go-to meals. It requires zero thinking and are super quick for dinners on the run.
Cooked rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store or leftover chicken from the night before can be used here.
Start by sautéing sliced onions and coloured bell peppers in a large skillet for 3-4 minutes. What I love about this recipe is you can add any veggies you like. Mushrooms, zucchini or tomatoes would be really good too.
On the bottom of a flour tortilla, add a layer of cheese. Add chicken, sautéd onions and peppers and cilantro. Top it off with another layer of cheese.
My son, Evan likes a little bit of heat so I’ll add a few dashes of hot sauce. Place a second flour tortilla on top.
Cook in a large skillet until cheese starts to melt and tortilla is crispy and golden brown. Flip it over and cook until crispy and golden. The cheese should be completely melted. Transfer to a cutting board.
Slice into wedges using a pizza cutter and serve with sour cream and salsa. Delicious!
