How to Make It

Step 1

Spread 2 teaspoons pesto sauce on each of 4 tortillas.  Top each with 2 tablespoons cheese, 1/4 cup chicken and another 2 tablespoons cheese.  Divide the remaining 1 tablespoon pesto sauce among the tortillas.  Place the remaining tortillas over the filling.

Step 2

Spray a 12-inch skillet or griddle with vegetable cooking spray and heat over medium heat.  Cook the quesadillas, in batches, for 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and the cheese is melted.

Step 3

While the quesadillas are cooking, heat the traditional sauce in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat until hot.  Serve the quesadillas cut in quarters with the Italian sauce for dipping.

Recipe Tips

  • Flavor Variation: You can add 1 cup fresh baby spinach and 1/2 cup roasted red pepper strips to these quesadillas.  Layer the spinach over the chicken and the roasted red pepper strips over the second layer of cheese before cooking.
