Chicken Quesadillas


Quick, easy and delicious. It's hard to go wrong with cheddar, chicken and hot sauce. A great way to have something tasty to eat within no time.













Trans-fat Free, Low Carb, Sugar-Free


8 large flour tortillas
98% fat free
3 cups cheddar cheese
nonfat, shredded
12 ounces chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
1 tablespoon red hot pepper sauce


Heat a griddle or a large frying pan; if you are using a frying pan, brush the surface with olive oil.

Warm the tortillas, 1 at a time, on both sides.

Return 1 tortilla to the pan, spread a quarter of the cheese over it, and scatter a quarter of the chicken over the cheese.

Add a dash of hot sauce, and top with another tortilla.

Cook until the cheese is nearly completely melted, about 4 minutes, turn, and cook for 2 minutes more.

Transfer to a work surface, and cook the remaining quesadillas in the same manner.

Cut each quesadilla into 6 triangles, transfer them to individual plates and serve.
