Easy Grilled Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

Next time, I will use regular tortillas rather than the whole wheat. The whole wheat were a little harder to work with in the pan and the final result wasn't quite as crispy as a regular tortilla.

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into strips
your favorite seasonings (I used my homemade Adobo seasoning)
fresh lime juice
whole wheat tortillas (or your favorite variety), warmed slightly
shredded Mexican blend cheese
thinly sliced red onion
salsa for serving

Rub chicken strips with seasoning and let rest, refrigerated, for several hours.

Preheat grill over medium heat. Grill chicken til cooked through. Remove from grill and set aside to cool slightly until able to be handled; slice thinly. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the top of the chicken slices.
Line up tortillas on work surface and sprinkle generously with cheese. Top with chicken slices and onion. Top with second tortilla.

Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray.

Carefully move quesadilla to hot pan and fry on one side, til cheese is melted. Carefully flip with a large spatula (or slide from a plate and flip). Fry other side til golden brown.

I served the quesadillas with homemade salsa.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d815/d327/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
Variations: Add thinly sliced bell pepper, black or refried beans, or avocado. Serve with sour cream or guacamole. Serve with steak or even mushrooms instead of chicken.
