Best Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

Today I would like to show you how to make Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla in just 15 minutes. This is one of my favorite Mexican recipes and probably one of the best.

Do you like Mexican food? And if you do, why?

Well, let me tell you why I like it.

First of all, it’s full of taste and flavor. And this is true about most Mexican food, but I have to admit that my favorite one so far is Quesadilla. I think this one fits just perfect in my taste and flavor criteria. And if you want to know more about Quesadilla and its origins, see what Wikipedia says in this article.

Of course, anybody can melt some cheese and throw bits of chicken into a tortilla, then call it a chicken quesadilla recipe.

But if you really want to make it Mexican (and crazy delish) you have to take it one step further.

You need a tasty sauce, the jalapenos, peppers, avocado and some yummy ‘queso’ (cheese). All these ingredients bring a lot of flavor and shouldn’t be disregarded. It’s kind of like a rock band where every guy in the crew matters a lot. Forget about one thing and you can mess up everything.

But when you start listing all these ingredients it suddenly doesn’t seem easy anymore, does it?

Well, what if I told you that this quesadilla recipe is just as easy as throwing cheese and chicken into a tortilla. It literally took me ten minutes to prep and about five to cook it. This is the second reason why I love it so much.

You probably know by now that I love flavorful dishes that are so damn easy to cook (who doesn’t, right? 🙂 ).
And this easy Chicken Quesadilla recipe is just that. A crazy delish that you can make in no-time.

Now, the third reason why I love this easy chicken quesadilla is because you can have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Or maybe it’s just me because I love it so much 🙂

More Breakfast Recipes:

But seriously, it’s the type of food that you can quickly gobble up in the morning before work, at lunch, or make a large batch for your weekly meal prep.

Your kids can take it with them to school (if they still do that 🙂 ) and also you can have it for dinner on your movie nights (my favorite one yet).

This Chicken Quesadilla is also great for parties because it’s so quick and easy to make. Be sure to make plenty of it as I am certain everybody will go crazy for it.
And if you have a big party, then you might want to add these easy Avocado Toasts along with the Chicken Quesadillas.

So the Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla is incredibly versatile, isn’t it?
That’s why I think it’s the best chicken quesadilla recipe I’ve seen in a while.

You can make it with chicken or turkey leftovers. Or, you can buy rotisserie chicken, shred the breast and use that.

Also, you can play around with the ingredients. Use your favorite cheese, or sauce.
If you like it really spicy, then you can go for hot peppers or some hot chili sauce.

By now I am sure that you are craving for it, so I will wrap up this recipe’s key points in a few bullets and then I will show you how to make Chicken Quesadilla.

  • You can make it in 15 minutes
  • Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Now, let’s get down to business folks, shall we?
