Quick and Easy Leftover Chicken Quesadillas
A favorite meal that I plan ahead to have leftover chicken for. This is a throw together meal that is so cheesy and delicious. I like them best with corn tortillas.
Dovetailing Tip: Use the Chili Lime Chicken that you cooked for Meal 1.You will be pleased with the additonal seasoning on the chicken.
|4||(8-10 inch) flour tortillas (or 8 corn)|
|2 cups||shredded cooked chicken|
|1 cup||shredded cheddar or monterrey jack cheese|
|1/4 cup||cream cheese, softened|
|1/2 teaspoon||garlic powder|
|1/4 cup||chopped cilantro|
|salt and pepper to taste|
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, shredded chicken, cheese, garlic powder, cilantro, salt and pepper.Mix thoroughly until well combined.
Heat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. Carefully place one tortilla on the pan, top with half the mixture and spread out evenly, top with another tortilla. Cook for 2 minutes then flip with a spatula and cook the other side for 2 minutes or until light golden and the cheese is melted. Repeat for 2nd quesadilla.
Remove from heat and cut into 8 slices. Serve with salsa or guacamole.
Serve warm with your favorite salsa.
