Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the chicken breasts until they are fully cooked and remove from heat.
  2. Once the chicken has cooled for a bit, use a fork and shred the chicken into a mixing bowl. (It should be a bit stringy).
  3. Add the 1 cup of Salsa, and mix the chicken and salsa until the salsa is thoroughly covering the chicken.
  4. Heat up a frying pan or skillet to a medium to medium high heat.
  5. Take a flour tortilla and spoon out some of the chicken and salsa mix onto one half of it. ADD ENOUGH GRATED CHEESE TO YOUR DESIRED TASTE.
  6. Fold the filled tortilla in half and place on the greased (Pam Cooking Spray) fry pan or skillet.
  7. Cook until golden brown and then flip and cook the other side.
  8. Spray the frying pan between quesadillas to prevent sticking.
  9. *Optional: You can cut the quesadillas into thirds to make it easier to eat.
  10. *Optional: Enjoy these with guacamole and salsa, refried beans and tortilla chips!
