This recipe comes from the Novice Chef blog. These quesadillas are some of the best Ive ever ate. My brother even said they tasted better than Taco Bell’s quesadillas! The cilantro and lime juice give this a fresh pop of flavor. Delish!
1 pkg perdue carved chicken breast- I used 3 big boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp butter
1 cup shredded mexican cheese- I used Weight Watchers
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 onion, diced
salt & pepper
I also used a few dashes of hot sauce
Sour cream and pico de gallo for garnish
Melt butter in skillet. Saute onions until they begin getting soft. Add in chicken, garlic, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Cook about 5 mins.
Heat another large skillet. Spray with nonstick spray. Lay down one tortilla. Top with some of the cheese, chicken mixture, lime juice, and cilantro leaves. Sprinkle with a little more cheese and top with second tortilla. Cook about 2 mins per side or until cheese is melted. Slice into 6 triangles and garnish with sour cream and pico de gallo.
