These are yummy, easy, and with low-fat cheese and high fiber, whole grain tortillas, a very healthy meal. You can add sauteed onions, peppers, spinach, and/or mushrooms in addition to the chicken or instead of to create a meatless meal. Serve with a veggie of your choice and/or a simple green salad with balsamic vinaigrette. Enjoy!
2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 can of refried beans (leftover from baked taco recipe)
1/2 can of diced green chilies (also leftover from baked taco dinner - I hate wasting food)
8 whole grain, high fiber tortillas
1/2 - 1 cup reduced fat cheddar or part skim mozzerella cheese
light or fat-free sour cream, salsa, taco sauce, and/or guacamole for serving
Spray a non stick pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle the cut chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat until cooked through, about 5-10 min. Set aside.
|Cooked chicken - I gave it to the kids just like this, serving them with cheese only quesadillas|
|Please note that I broke the chicken apart as I made the quesadilla, but this step is not necessary, it just helps to keep them together the flatter they are.|
Place the another tortilla on the top and place into a non-stick pan over medium heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, being careful that they don't burn. (I used to grease or spray in this step)
