More than just a Chicken Quesadilla

Hello all,
I had to go back to an old standby recipe for my family. For me it’s a struggle to keep things new, interesting and have a meal that the entire family likes…..but some how it gets accomplished.


So let’s start cooking…..

8 Chicken Tenders
1 bag of frozen corn
1/2 Cup of frozen red, yellow, green peppers diced
1/2 Cup of yellow onion diced
1 Cup of black beans
2 Tbs of finely chopped basil
2 Tbs of finely chopped cilantro
2 cloves of crushed garlic
Grapeseed oil or oil of choice

1/2 tsp of cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, chilli powder and paprika. Mix together in a small bowl.


With your seasoning, season your chicken on both sides. You should have a tsp or 2 remaining. Set the remainder aside for later.

In a pan on the stove on medium heat. Add 2 Tbs of oil. Now pan sear your chicken until fully cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.

In a clean pan on medium heat add a tsp of oil. Add your corn, peppers, beans, onions, garlic, basil, cilantro and the remainder of your seasonings. Once full cooked reduce heat to low. Chop your tenders into bite size pieces and add to your mixture. Get everything evenly combined. Now your done making your filling.

Now you can either make a lettuce wrap, place over a salad or in a tortilla.

If going the tortilla route add a little oil a tsp or less to a pan on medium heat. Add your tortilla add cheese on one side and your filling with a little salsa on top to the other side. Once your tortilla is lightly golden flip the cheese side on top of the filling side.

Now enjoy your delicious meal. This is a super easy dish with limitless ways to customize it, to suit your taste buds. Please feel free to share how you make yours.

Until Next Time,
