Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet fajita seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 10 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 8 ounce package shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounce package shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups Daisy Sour Cream

    For time-savings, use precooked, diced rotisserie chicken in place of raw chicken.

Directions

  1. Cut each chicken breast lengthwise in 3 strips; cut crosswise into thin pieces. Combine with the fajita seasoning and mix well.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook 7 to 8 minutes or until no longer pink in the center, stirring frequently. Stir in the bell peppers and onion. Cook the vegetables for 5 to 7 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  3. For each quesadilla, sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese on half of a tortilla. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture over the cheese. Top with 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese and fold the tortilla over, forming a half moon. Press lightly.
  4. Spray a skillet or griddle with cooking spray; warm to medium heat. Lightly brown each quesadilla for 2 to 3 minutes per side until the cheese is melted.
  5. Cut each into 4 wedges and serve with sour cream.
