Chicken Pineapple Quesadilla

19 Jul

This is definitely one of those quick go-to meals in our house when we have a limited time to cook and eat. (It could even be taken on the go if needed!) Take a simple chicken quesadilla, add some pineapple, and it’s taken to a whole other level. If you have fresh pineapple, go for it, and if you have time, grill it before adding to the dish! If not, the cute little canned pineapple tidbits work perfectly too. This is another dish you can personalize to your liking – add some black beans, skip the cilantro, dip in some salsa, etc…

Here’s another version that looks mighty tasty: The Pioneer Woman’s Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas

Chicken Pineapple Quesadilla

4 tortillas
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cut into pieces
2 cups of shredded cheese
2/3 cups pineapple tidbits
1/3 cups fresh cilantro, chopped

Heat a pan on the stovetop over medium heat. When hot, put a tortilla in the pan and top it with some chicken, pineapple, cilantro, and cheese. Heat it for 1-2 minutes, until cheese starts to melt and tortilla starts to get crispy. Then fold the quesadilla in half and cook another minute until cheese is melted all the way. Serve whole or cut into smaller pieces. Makes 4 quesadillas.
