Chicken Quesedillas

18 May

I am currently expecting and cannot diet, but as soon as this sweet bean pops out, it’s back to diet and exercise for this family! So each week I will be calculating each meal for both calories and cost.  That way, when the time comes, calorie counting should be a cinch!

Chicken Quesadillas

I’m not sure that “quesadillas” is the right term, but that’s what we call them!  I used to add salsa and sour cream into mine and make some plain ones for my picky husband, but one day I tried one of the plain ones and it was so good!  So now I make them all plain and dip them in salsa and sour cream. 

Ingredients:

1/3 C Butter or Margarine
2 tsp Minced Garlic
4   Tortilla Wraps
3 10 oz cans Cubed Chicken Breast
1/2 C Shredded Cheese
4 Tbsp Sour Cream
4 Tbsp Salsa
Directions:
In a skillet melt butter.  Sautee garlic in butter.  Drain and add chicken breast.  Place 1/4 of chicken in tortilla wrap.  Sprinkle with 1/4 of the cheese.  Wrap and roll and place in a small casserole dish.  Bake on about 350 for about 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
