Chicken Pesto Quesidillas
Serves: 4
  • Chicken 1.5-2 lbs breast grilled (or rotissier chicken or even deli slices)
  • Some lettuce (Butter or a cripsy lettuce)
  • Jar of Sundried tomatoes in oil, cut into strips or small pieces
  • Siete wraps or whatever you like
  • Cheese if you desire (mozzarella is my daughter's preference for this
  • Pesto (you can buy or make your own)
  • Our pesto ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves (I like 1 cup cilantro and 1 cup basil)
  • ½ cup walnuts or pine nuts (I use pumpkin seeds go raw brand)
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. If you make the pesto which I highly recommend, just blend all of the ingredients together. That's it! For the quesadilla....
  2. Take your grilled chicken (rotisserie chicken or deli slices chicken) and cut it into long thin slices unless it's deli meat.
  3. Heat a large frying pan onto medium heat and add 2 tsp of butter.
  4. Add 2 tortillas (and sprinkle cheese on it if desired) and cook until brown.
  5. Place the cooked tortilla on a plate, add the chicken, sun dried tomatoes and lettuce.
  6. With the other tortilla, coat it with pesto and then place it on top of the tortilla with the chicken.
  7. Use a pizza cutter to cut twice through the middle and enjoy!
