Tutorial Tuesday - Spinach Artichoke Chicken Quesadillas

Okay guys, I have to apologize. We are having serious technical difficulties at our house in regards to the internet. Well actually, there just is none, LOL, that's a pretty serious difficulty, no? Thankfully most of my posts for this week are already ready to roll, but Tutorial Tuesday is currently being "winged" from my handy dandy android phone.

Since my publishing capabilities are limited, we will save my super cute scarf tutorial for next week. (You don't want to miss that, and it deserves better than a phone post!!) Instead, I'm cheating and making it easy on myself by sharing one of my favorite recipes. :) It's easy, seriously anyone can do it, and it's a quick dinner idea to boot!

Spinach Artichoke Chicken Quesadillas

Here's what you need:

1. Tyson Grilled Ready-to-Eat Chicken Breasts
2. Spinach Dip: I get mine from the deli section at HEB
3. Steamable frozen Artichoke hearts
4. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
5. Large Flour Tortillas
6. Butter

Mixing Bowl
Wooden spoon
Skillet big enough to accommodate tortilla size you chose

Ok, so I have to warn you this is one of those recipes that I make just by sort of looking at the way things are turning out. I have no idea how much of each thing I use, but I like my filling substantial with plenty of chicken to keep it meaty! So just watch how things are coming out and add or take away as needed. :)

Warm an empty skillet on the stove on Medium heat. While it's heating, steam the artichokes in the microwave according to package instructions. Then, warm your chicken in the microwave according to the package instructions. Chop chicken and artichokes into small pieces so everything blends well. Add to mixing bowl. Add a couple of spoons of the spinach dip to your chicken and artichokes and stir until it looks like the portions are pretty equal. Add shredded cheese to mix until you are pleased with the cheesiness of the mix. :)

Butter one side of 2 tortillas. Place your first tortilla butter side down in the skillet. Spoon mixture onto tortilla and top with unbuttered side of 2nd tortilla. Flip when bottom is brown and toasty and remove from skillet when 2nd tortilla is also brown a toasty. Mix inside should be melty and bubbly. Cut into slices and serve! Repeat it necessary... and it's usually necessary!!


I hope you all get a chance to try out this dish and come tell me how you liked it. It's one of my favorite easy dinner ideas!!

Oh yeah, and please think happy thoughts for my internet!! Without it, I feel like I'm missing an arm!!
