Easy Chicken Quesadilla

These Easy Chicken Quesadilla come together super quickly with lots of flavor!

Ingredients

  • 10 oz raw boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons southwest or taco seasoning, I used McCormick Perfect Pinch Salt Free Southwest Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 Flatout Light Original Flatbreads
  • 4 oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 tablespoons salsa, I used roasted tomato salsa

Instructions

  • Place the chopped chicken into a zip top bag and add the southwest seasoning. Seal the bag and shake/massage the chicken until coated with the seasoning.
  • Place the oil in a large skillet and bring over medium heat. Add the seasoned chicken and stir to coat with oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-6 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat.
  • Place a Flatout flatbread onto a clean, dry surface and sprinkle ½ ounce of the shredded cheese over half the surface of the flatbread (the long way). Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the salsa over the top of the shredded cheese and top with ¼ of the cooked chicken. Sprinkle another ½ ounce of the shredded cheese over the chicken and then fold the empty half of the flatbread over the toppings to form the quesadilla. Repreat with remaining ingredients to make 4 quesadillas (if not serving all at once you can store the ingredients separately and build when needed)
  • Lightly mist both sides of the quesadillas with cooking spray. Bring a large griddle pan or skillet to medium heat and place the quesadillas on the pan (you may have to work in batches). Cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until the outside of the flatbread starts to turn golden and the cheese inside is melted. Cut each quesadilla into triangles with a knife or pizza cutter and serve.
