Chicken Quesadilla Recipe- Link Up!

Best Blogger Tips

We love going to this Mexican Restaurant near our house, but with a family of 5 and with everyone eating larger portions (the girls use to share a meal and the baby would take bits of ours) we spent $60 last time we went. That is a lot of money just for one dinner. So I thought that we would try and recreate their Chicken Quesadilla, chips and salsa, which are our 2 favorite dish there!!

-1 and a half pound of chicken
-jar of salsa and chips
-seasoning of your choice (i just used a little onion powder and salt and pepper)
-soft floured tortilla shells

-Cook the chicken in water and your salt, pepper and any additional spices you want
-Drain the chicken, keeping a cup of the chicken broth
-Shred the chicken and place it back in the pan with the cup of the chicken broth from the pan and let simmer
-add a cup of salsa to your chicken mix, let simmer about 10 minutes
-in a separate pan, place a shell in the pan, cook about a minute, turn over and fill one side with your chicken mix and top it with your favorite cheese
-fold the shell in half and cook about 45 seconds - 1 minute on each side to get the shell toasted

*****you can add additional items to the chicken mix if you like- onions and tomatoes are in the ones that we get from the restaurant but we normally pick them out, but love the flavor so I had to add more spices to get the same flavor. Salsa is usually loaded with flavor so I thought this would be a great addition!

Here is the finished project, although they were not exactly the same taste as the ones at the restaurant they were very close. My hubby and my girls all said that they were better!!!
