Chicken Quesadillas Servings: 2-4
You'll need
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 cups shredded skinless rotisserie chicken meat
  • 1½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 pickled jalapeño chile
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 burrito-size flour tortillas
  • ¾ cup salsa verde
  • ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream
1. Preheat toaster oven to 425°. Thinly slice green onions; reserve 2 tablespoons dark green tops for garnish.
2. Evenly divide chicken, cheese, jalapeño, cilantro, and remaining green onions on one side of each tortilla; fold other half over.
3. In single layer on foil-lined toaster oven tray (working in batches if necessary), toast quesadillas 8-10 minutes, or until tortillas are golden brown and cheese is melted.
4. Cut each quesadilla in half. Serve with salsa verde, add a dollop of sour cream if you’d like, and sprinkle with reserved green onions.
