These Italian chicken quesadillas are a simple, flavorful and wonderful dinner. Cooking them in a waffle iron gives them a great texture, too!

Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
Tyson® Ground Chicken
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Fresh Baby Spinach
, firmly packed
TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas
Nonstick Cooking Spray
Get out a large skillet and heat the reserved oil from the tomatoes over medium-high heat. Add the
Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil (1 jar)
Garlic (2 cloves)
and let them get fragrant for a couple of minutes.
Add in the
Tyson® Ground Chicken (1 lb)
and let it cook through thoroughly with the vegetables.
While it cooks, season the mixture with generous pinches of
Salt (1 pinch)
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 pinch)
, followed by the
Dried Parsley (1/2 tsp)
Dried Basil (1/2 tsp)
When the chicken is done, take the pan off the heat and stir in the
Fresh Baby Spinach (1 cup)
so that it wilts in. Then get out a waffle iron and preheat it. While it heats up, assemble your first quesadilla:
TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas (12)
and scoop a generous helping of the filling in the middle, spreading it out into an even layer. Add a big handful of the
Asiago Cheese (2 cups)
and a small handful
Parmesan Cheese (1 1/4 cups)
evenly over the top.
Close it up with another tortilla, and then grease the preheated waffle maker with
Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed)
. Close the quesadilla in the waffle maker to cook for 5 minutes. It should get really golden on the outside and melty in the middle.
While it is cooking, assemble the next one so that it is ready. When the first one is done, cut it into quarters and serve it immediately, with warmed up marinara if you wish! Repeat the process with the remaining 5 quesadillas.
These can be made without a waffle iron, just heat up the quesadillas in a lightly oiled skillet until starting to brown on the outside and melted through on the inside.
For TortillaLand® Fresh Ready to Cook Tortillas:
1. Preheat a non-stick pan to medium heat (440ºF). No butter or oil required.
2. Place tortilla in a pan and cook for 30 seconds until slightly golden and tortilla begins to puff.
3. Turn tortillas over, and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Cook thoroughly before eating. Caution: tortilla will be hot. Enjoy!
Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Do not mix cooked and uncooked tortillas. Try cooking the tortillas on the grill or BBQ - grill tortillas until they have grill marks on both sides.
