So, I love when all of my ingredients are ready to throw together and cook in a matter of minutes. This is a great recipe to make with some leftover chicken.

Super Simple Chicken Quesadilla

Prep. Time; 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes


2 chicken breasts, sliced
1 cup shredded cheese
4 flour tortillas
taco seasoning (or cayenne, whatever you like)

***If you don’t have leftover chicken to use, slice your chicken and cook it in olive oil in a skillet for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.***
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Place flour tortilla on a baking sheet.
3. Sprinkle cheese on half of the tortilla. Layer with chicken, then taco seasoning; fold tortilla in half. Repeat this with the other 3 tortillas.

*** I like to put ranch and hot sauce on the top of the quesadilla. So delicious!!! ***
