Apple-Chicken Quesadillas

By J Kate

You may be surprised at the idea of combining chicken and apples inside a crispy tortilla, but the taste will amaze you.

Apple-Chicken Quesadillas
  • 2 medium tart apples, sliced

  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken breast

  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn, thawed

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 6 low-carb tortillas, fajita-sized, warmed

  • 3/4 cup shredded lettuce

  • 3/4 cup salsa

  • 6 tablespoons sour cream

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Place about 3/4 cup on half of each tortilla. Fold tortilla in half over filling and secure with toothpicks.

  2. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

  3. Carefully turn quesadillas over; bake 5-8 minutes longer or until golden brown. Discard toothpicks. Cut each quesadilla into three wedges. Serve with lettuce, salsa, and sour cream.

Going to try this one also! I'll use plain yogurt instead of sour cream, though. I think I'll use my quesadilla maker instead of the oven. I'll give it 5 stars asap.
