Chicken Quesadillas Made Simple

I got the basic idea for these quesadillas from a friend and added to it from there.  What I loved about this recipe however, was how simple it was and most of all how much my kids enjoyed these tasty triangles.  Besides making a healthy lunch they also make a fantastic side dish or appetizer.  If you don't particularly enjoy the taste of canned chicken try rotisserie chicken or grilled, oh' so tasty!  
Mexican Blend Cheese
Burrito size Flour Tortillas
Canned Chicken
Lime Juice
PAM cooking spray
 I made a quick salsa to go along with the quesadillas.  I simply chopped some tomatoes, cilantro, onions into small pieces.  Add a dash of salt and pepper and a some lime juice to your liking.
Place salsa in small dish.
Add a small amount of mayonnaise to chicken. {To make this project really simple I decided to mix the mayo and chicken in the can.  Why wash another bowl?  After all this is supposed to be simple.}
Take a flour tortilla and add chicken mixture, cheese...
and a small amount of salsa mixture.
Spray bottom of pan with cooking spray, such as PAM.
Grill both sides of quesadillas until they are a golden brown.  {You could substitute PAM for butter for a more flavor if you like.}
Toasty warm and ready to eat.
Simple aye?

simply . living . life
