4u fitness chicken quesadilla recipe

Directions:

1. Add cooking spray to a medium skillet and leave on medium heat. Add onions and cook down until transparent. Add cooked chicken, cumin, oregano and chili powder and stir until spices are mixed well. Add spinach, a little salt and pepper and cook until spinach is wilted.

2. Layer your tortilla of choice on a flat surface and sprinkle 2 tbsp of shredded cheese. Spoon 1/2 chicken and veggie mixture on top of the cheese, then top with another 2 tbsp shredded cheese. Top with another tortilla. (If your macros allow for, you will use the remaining chicken mixture and cheese for the second quesadilla, otherwise add the entire chicken mixture and cheese on one tortilla).

3. Heat a separate large non-stick skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. Carefully place your quesadilla in the skillet and cook for approx. 3 minutes. Using a large spatula, gently flip quesadilla and cook and additional 3 minutes lightly browned and cheese has melted.

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 if your macros allow for more carbs. Cut and serve with sour cream! Enjoy!
