Chicken quesadillas have always been one of my family's favorite meals. I really enjoy them. They are so easy to make. I love how they are filled with so much cheese. I usually make my quesadillas without a sauce. However, I have a variation with sauce.

These chicken quesadillas are perfect for making for a quick dinner or a gathering at your house. These are always a crowd-pleaser. People will definitely approach you asking for the recipe as if it is some top secret. …Lol.

Ingredients  to chicken quesadilla

They are so easy to make. Sometimes my three and Seven-year-old help me prepare these chicken quesadillas.

I use the dry seasoning on my chicken. I season my chicken with seasoning salt, pepper, and garlic powder. However, if you prefer, you can use the sauce. The sauce is optional.

How to make the sauce

The sauce is definitely optional, but as I mentioned before, I don’t like too much sauce, but my husband loves it! So, it’s completely your preference. Either way, it’s just as delicious! I simply use the taco seasoning in the pack. I just added a little water to the taco seasoning mix.

Layering the tortilla/Cooking

After I cook the chicken, I place butter in a pan to coat it, and then I place the tortilla in the pan. I first place the chicken all over, then the cheese. I then put another tortilla wrap on top and begin to flatten with a spatular. Flip to the other side and do the same. Once both sides are crispy. Enjoy with your favorite condiment.


My daughter loves to make them with the griddle. This way, she doesn’t touch the stove. It’s fast and convenient. Butter the griddle the same as you would the stove, and there you have it!!
