Day 62, Chicken Quesadillas

I had some leftover rotisserie chicken, so I chopped it finely and threw it between some tortillas. A little taco seasoning, and you have a tasty treat.

Chicken Quesadillas

1 cooked chicken breast, finely chopped or shredded
5 green onions, chopped
1 (8 oz) bag of taco cheese
1 packet taco seasoning
4 10-inch tortillas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix chicken, onions and seasoning in a bowl. Spray a pizza pan or baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place 2 tortillas on pan. Add chicken mixture, divided equally, to each tortilla; spread evenly over tortillas. Add cheese on top of chicken mixture, divided equally. Place remaining two tortillas on top of each. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy. Cut into 8 slices and serve with salsa, guacamole and/or sour cream.

Serves 4-5

This is another good way to finish up a rotisserie chicken that's leftover form the day before. You don't need to heat the chicken separately, it will warm up in the oven. I used cheese that had jalapenos in the mixture for added spiciness. This would be a good appetizer for a game night.

Flavor Rating: Great, it was a nice mixture, if you like more spiciness, add green chilies or jalapenos.

Ease of Preparation: Easy, removing the chicken from the bone is easier if the chicken is still warm.
