About this Recipe

Fast. Easy. Simple. No flipping! What else could you want in a chicken quesadilla? I prefer to use leftover rotisserie chicken because it’s so easy to shred, but grilled or roasted chicken will work just fine. Get creative with the fillings - you can add salsa, roasted vegetables or just about anything you can think of.

  • ⅓ cup (about 1 oz) cooked, shredded chicken
  • ¼ cup (2 oz) shredded cheese
