Chicken Quesadillas


I apologize for pre-posting this the other night before it was completed. There were various technical difficulties that my loving husband had to help me with. Ooops!

In Quesadilla News....this is a crazy-delicious lunch or dinner idea that comes together quickly and easily. It's healthy--but only if you can keep yourself from going back for more and more and more. This would be perfect for parties and appetizer trays as well!

An inside look at deliciousness!

Chicken Quesadillas
Serves 2-4

3 boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 green pepper, sliced
1/4 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
canola oil
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or white cheddar cheese
4 large soft tortillas 

Drizzle oil in a large skillet and heat over medium. Add chicken, peppers, onion and garlic and cook for 4 minutes. Stir. Cook 4 more minutes. Stir. Continue cooking until peppers are softened and chicken is no longer pink in the center.

Place 2 of the tortillas on large work surface and spread chicken and peppers mixture evenly across each tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese. Top with the remaining tortillas. 

Cook in the same skillet over medium high heat for 4 minutes on each side, or until dark golden and crisp. 

Remove from heat and cut into quarters. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
