Pesto Chicken Quesadillas

These skillet quesadillas are quick and delicious. Try a flavored rotisserie chicken or add some toasted pine nuts to kick up the flavor. Marinara or sour cream makes a nice dollop on the plate.

Prep Time:


  • 1 (3.5-oz.) jar pesto (we tested with Alessi)
  • 4 (8") flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 (8-oz.) package shredded Italian cheese blend
  • Softened butter or yogurt-based spread (we tested with Brummel & Brown)


  1. Spread about 1 1/2 Tbsp. pesto on each tortilla. Sprinkle a slightly heaping 1/3 cup chicken onto half of each tortilla; sprinkle cheese over chicken on each tortilla.
  2. Fold each tortilla in half. Butter both sides of each folded tortilla.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook quesadillas, in 2 batches, 2 minutes on each side or until browned and crusty. Remove to a cutting board, and cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges.
