Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

Chicken Quesadilla

I work. That is, I have a job that occupies a good deal of my time. And, like many working folk out there, weekday dinners too often get left to take-out or ham and cheese. To avoid this scenario as often as possible I cook large amounts of food on the weekend and make do with left overs during the week (not the only one, I'm sure). My favorite thing to do with grilled chicken is to make quesadillas. With the right ingredients on hand, the come together very quickly and are ready by the time you've changed out of your work clothes.


  • 1 Grilled Boneless Chicken Breast (try this Citrus Chicken Recipe)
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Salsa (try this recipe)
  • 1/2 Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Whole Wheat Tortillas
  • Dollop of Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Slice grilled chicken into thin strips.

Lay one of the tortillas on a baking sheet. Top with one layer of chicken, then one layer of cheese, then one layer of salsa. Cover with the remaining tortilla and slide it into the oven.

Go take off that tie, change into comfy shorts, and return in about 15 minutes.

Remove the quesadilla from the oven, cut into quarters and serve with that dollop of sour cream and a little more of the salsa.

Thank you so much for this recipe!! I just moved, and my husband and I have been living off fast food for the past month, as none of our dishes are unpacked, and our microwave still isn't installed. Today I didn't have it in me to eat junk food, so I pulled out the leftover rotisserie chicken we bought at the store and googled "chicken quesadilla oven." I perused through the various results, and decided to try your recipe. It couldn't have been easier! The edges of the tortilla came out wonderfully crispy, the cheese was nice and melty all the way through, it was perfect. I only left it in for about 8 minutes, I pulled it out when I noticed the edges browning. I also chose not to include the salsa in the quesadilla-I don't like my salsa hot. A million thanks to you, this recipe is getting a place of honor on my fridge. Now I know what we'll be living off for the next month!! ;)

Thanks for the note, Janelle - this is certainly a quick and easy Chicken Quesadilla Recipe and I'm glad it worked out for you. Good luck in the new home!
