Chicken Quesadillas: Tuesday's Meal!





Sorry, I have been behind on the whole 'Weekly Meals' thing! Monday we ended up going out to dinner with some friends of ours that are moving away. Breaks my heart when we go enjoy a meal with individuals simply because they are moving to another state :( We have some good friends starting new chapters in their lives that we are truly going to miss!

BUT last night, I made 'CHICKEN QUESADILLAS WITH MEXICAN RICE.'

I know, that's not something that's like "Oh my gosh, how in the world did you make that?" haha! But it turned out good, so I thought I would share... because it's quick and we all know how wonderful that is! 

Here's what you need to make your Chicken Quesadillas:

Tortillas
Chicken
Taco Seasoning
Shredded Cheese
Any other yummies you want to add (we had sour cream and ranch dressing)

I made 3 quesadillas since it's just the husband and me that would be eating it. I took 3 tortillas and wet one side of it. (I basically just ran my hand under cold water and rubbed it on one side.) Then I laid the damp side on to the baking pan. (Make sure you spray the pan too before all of this or they will stick!)

After that, I put a thin layer of shredded cheese on the tortilla. I used the Shredded Fiesta Blend from Great Value. It tasted amazing!

While all of this was going on, I chopped up a 1/2 pound of chicken and was cooking it on the stove. After grilling it, I added 3/4 cup of water and the taco seasoning mix I had. I used McCormick.. the HOT kind :) It's the only way to go in this house, haha! But you can use whatever you would like, obviously :)

I laid the chicken all over the thin layer of cheese on the quesadilla, then I added another layer of cheese on top of that. After you have done that, just throw a tortilla on the top of all those yummy things!

Throw it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Just watch it after about 8 minutes... you don't want the tortillas to be too hard! :) Once you take it out of the oven, use a pizza cutter to cut it in pieces! 

We served ours with Mexican Rice!

Sorry, I didn't take many pictures during the process. I completely forgot about doing that, actually, haha! But I DID take a picture of the final product:


This was an AWESOME meal that we will definitely have again. As I said earlier, it was SO easy to do and quick! I would definitely recommend this :) We dipped ours in sour cream and ranch dressing. YUM.

Enjoy!
