Quick Lunch – Chicken Quesadillas

Deciding what to make for lunch is always an annoying proposition for me. I have a hard time pulling myself away from whatever activity I am currently engrossed in to stop and make a lunch. During the week I typically try to have my meals pre-prepped so I can grab them on the go in the morning, however, on the weekend it is often a last minute item.

There are a million recipes for them, but Chicken Quesadillas are always a win for a quick lunch! They are especially fast when you have one of the frozen onion and peppers bags in your freezer. 🙂 Fresh is better, but with three boys, I certainly do not have time to always be dicing before cooking.  Frozen veggies, whole wheat wraps, chicken, cheese, seasoning and you are good to go!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Quesadillas - Uncooked Filling

    Oil (I use Coconut Oil, but Olive Oil or butter works too.)

  • 6-8 Whole Wheat Tortilla Wraps
  • 1 lbs chicken
  • 1/2 Bag frozen onions & peppers
  • Shredded Cheese (Mexican mix is best for quesadillas, but cheddar works great too)
  • Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb Seasonings (I did not have any, so mixed: Cilantro, Red Pepper Flakes, Salt, Peppers, and a little Cumin)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Chicken Quesadillas - Place Cheese & Chicken Filling

    Place 1 Tbsp Oil in pan along with the chicken and frozen veggies 

  • Add seasonings to taste (I use about a tablespoon mixture since i like good amount of flavor)
  • Cook until chicken is no longer pink
  • Place chicken and veggies into a bowl
    • I re-use the same pan to reduce cleanup, but you can use a separate pan if you want.
  • Place small dot of oil or butter into the pan and place a tortilla shell onto the pan swirling it around to ensure the oil covers the shell bottom
  • Place a small layer of cheese across the shell
  • Place several spoonfuls of chicken filling onto one half of the shell atop the cheese
  • Once cheese looks like it is melting, fold the quesadilla in half remove from pan and repeat until filling has run out.
