Tasty Tuesday ~ Chicken Quesadillas

Ok.  So I know Quesadillas aren't exactly culinary genius.  Nor do you actually need a recipe to pull them off, but when I flipped my handy dandy work calendar to March and saw these delicious beauties starting back at me I knew I had to try them.  Believe it or not....I've never actually made a Quesadilla.  Shocking considering the amount of times I've eaten them at restaurants.  This version seems very healthy though and with my new MILF makeover in the works I've been trying to find good low cal recipes.   I haven't made these yet, last night was bit crazy but they're on the menu for later this week.  Enjoy!

Chicken Quesadillas
What you need:
4 oz Chicken Breast
1 (8 in) whole-wheat tortilla
2 oz low fat shredded cheese
1/8 medium onion, thinly sliced, rings separated
1/4 medium bell pepper, cut into strips

What you do:
Cut chicken into thin strips.  Coat a frying pan with cooking spray.  Saute chicken until cooked.  Add pepper and onion; cook until soft.  Set aside.  Place a tortilla in the frying pan; top one half of the tortilla mixture and the shredded cheese.  Fold the tortilla and press down slightly.  Brown on each side, cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Bon Appetite!
