Chicken Quesadilla Recipe - Chicken & Cheese Quesadilla Recipe

Quesadilla is my favourite, it is nothing but any filling placed inside some tortilla along with cheese and toasted or grilled to perfection. So delicious and cheese. I have shared few versions of quesadilla and this one is the simple one you could ever make.

I used chicken in this one, but you could easily use paneer or tofu instead of chicken. But never skip cheese, cheese is what holds the filling in the tortilla. I grilled it in a grill pan which gave a nice grill mark on top, you could toast them on a tawa.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
