Dinner: Simple Homemade Chicken Quesadillas

I made homemade chicken quesadillas for dinner a few weeks back.  I had a craving for them and decided to get a little creative.  Since my boyfriend isn’t a cheese fan I had to make something that was versatile – meaning I could eat it the way I wanted it and he could eat it without it containing cheese.  I started by sautéing some peppers and onions in a pan – my pan was spritzed with Pam to prevent sticking.  I seasoned them very lightly with black pepper and sea salt.  When done I transferred the cooked peppers and onions to a bowl and then heated through a package of original Perdue Short Cuts.  Once it was warmed I set the heated meat into a bowl.

I assembled two fajitas for my boyfriend (not pictured) and went ahead and made myself two quesadillas.  I spritzed my Joseph’s What Flax Tortillas with spray butter, added on ¾ cup chicken, topped with peppers and onions and then equally sprinkled with 1/3 cup of measured fat free mozzarella cheese.  I folded the quesadilla shut, spritzed it with spray butter and cooked it on both sides on medium heat.  When done I cut into triangles and served with some Uncle Ben’s 90-second rice, diced tomatoes and medium salsa.  Quite delicious and so filling!

10 Points Plus for the entire dinner.  Not bad at all!
