Italian Quesadillas

I absolutely love this recipe, it's quick and tastes delicous! Here is a yummy, Italian twist on quesadillas.

1 small can of tomato sauce
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Italian seasonings - a palm full
2 large chicken breasts - cut into strips
4 Multi-grain tortillas
Salt and pepper to taste
Drizzle of olive oil
This recipe feeds two people


In a small skillet or saucepan heat up a little olive oil. Add in the palm full of italian seasonings. I don't really measure this, I eye it. Mix it with the olive oil and allow the seasonings to cook a little. This helps to release the herbs full flavor. Pour in the tomato sauce and stir. Let it simmer for a few minutes on medium-low heat.

While the tomato sauce is simmering heat a few drizzles of olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Saute the chicken until it's cooked through.

Once the chicken is cooked take it out of the skillet and allow it to come to room temperature. Once it's cooled, shred the chicken with a fork.

Return the shredded chicken to the skillet, add in the seasoned tomato sauce.

Stir the sauce and chicken together until combined. In another skillet add a couple of drops of olive oil and heat it on medium-high heat. Take a multi-grain tortilla and put it in the skillet. Add some shredded mozzarella as the first layer then add some chicken, add more mozzarella on top of the chicken.

Place another multi-grain tortilla over the mozzarella. Flip (CAREFULLY) over to the other side. Allow it to brown a little and the mozzarella to melt. Slice it with a pizza cutter into quarters.

 VOILA! Italian Quesadillas. Serve with a side salad~
