Chicken Quesadillas

Prep: 10 minutes, Cook: 10 minutes, Serves: 4 to 5


1- 10 oz can Raley’s Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast, drained

1/2 cup Raley’s Medium Fire Roasted Salsa

2 tbsp. Sunnyside Farms Sour Cream

1/8 tsp. Raley’s Black Pepper

2 tbsp. Raley’s Sliced Black Olives

1/8 tbsp. Raley’s Chile Powder

1- 10 ct. pkg.  Raley’s Flour Tortillas, Soft Taco Size

2 cups Raley’s Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese (16 oz. pkg.)



1. Place the drained chicken in a microwaveable bowl. Flake chicken, then stir in salsa, sour cream, pepper, black olives, and chile powder.

2. Microwave, covered, on high for 3 minutes.

3. When the chicken mixture is ready, spread it over the tortillas, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese for each quesadilla. Top with the remaining tortillas and press lightly with your hands so they adhere.

4. Spray either a frying pan or panini press with cooking spray and cook quesadillas until both sides are crispy, golden brown and cheese has melted (approx. 3 minutes per side).

5. Cut each carefully into quarters, using a sharp serrated knife or pizza cutter. Serve with your choice of sour cream, avocado, tomatoes, chopped cilantro, salsa or guacamole.
