Chicken, Basil & Spinach Quesadillas


Serving this tonight with a salad. I’m looking forward to trying them.  Recipe courtesy of Org Junkie, linked from here.

I am using…

1 package precooked sliced chicken breast
basil pesto
Fresh baby spinach (about a handful)
Shredded mozzarella cheese
flour tortillas

Stir the pesto and chicken and heat through in a nonstick pan. Stir in spinach and cook until just wilted.  Fill half of each tortilla with filling and top with cheese. Fold the tortilla over the filling and cook in clean nonstick pan.

So it is a nice one pan meal, so long as you remove the filling into a bowl and wipe down your nonstick quickly before putting it back on the burner.

  1. wow! I was very impressed with this. Very satisfying, very quick & easy to prepare. The basil pesto really comes through here. My only complaint (and it’s not the recipe, it’s the nature of pesto) was a little oil drippage from the quesadilla as we ate, which annoyed me. However, given the result…I’ll just deal with it. 🙂
    I will definitely make this again… I might try a different cheese though with a bit more of a bite, instead of the mild taste of mozzarella.
