Chicken Quesadillas Recipe
Just plain healthy recipe...
Tender boneless skinless chicken breast, onions, salsa, tomatoes, cliantro and Cheddar cheese create satisfying chicken quesadillas.
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup hot salsa
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
12 8-inch flour tortillas
1 cup reduced fat Cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Cut chicken into small chunks. In a nonstick skillet, saute the chicken and chopped onions until tender yet thoroughly cooked. You may need to add a little water when you begin cooking. Remove from heat. Stir in the salsa, tomatoes and cilantro.
To assemble: Lay each tortilla flat. Rub the outside edge with water and spread about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture onto the tortilla, leaving about 1/2 inch free around outer rim. Sprinkle with a spoonful of shredded cheese. Fold tortilla in half and seal. Place on a cookie sheet. Assemble remaining quesadillas. Bake about 5 minutes in oven. Cut in halves and serve.
Note: People with diabetes or those on calorie-controlled diets may count one serving as 4 lean meat, 2 starch, 2 vegetables.
Love it REALLY hot?
Do try Fire Roasted Mexican Red Salsa - the taste is as Mexican as it gets and it's hot, in more ways than one!
