Bird’s the Word Day Four

Thursday night was another delicious and easy meal-Chicken Goat-Cheese Quesadillas!


Chicken Goat-Cheese Quesadillas
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

You will need:
1 1/2 oz. goat cheese, softened to room temperature
2 T shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 t virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped Vidalia onion
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 pinch ground black pepper
1/2 cup diced, cooked skinless white meat chicken
1 T chopped fresh cilantro
4 six-inch corn tortillas
Nonstick cooking spray

1. Combine cheeses in a small bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add corn and pepper, sauté for 1 minute. Add chicken and sauté for 1 minute. Remove from heat, then stir in cilantro.

3. Divide cheese mixture and spread over 2 tortillas. Layer each tortilla with half the chicken mixture and top with remaining tortillas.

4. Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray. Warm quesadillas over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes, flipping halfway.

Yum! 4 days worth of delicious meals so far this week! Last night I de-boned the chicken (my first time seeing an inside of a chicken, woah!) and we have about 1 cup of shredded chicken meat left. I have a plan for Saturday night since today we cannot eat meat (Lent). Stay tuned!!!

  1. Yay for making it to day four! I think i am going to try this challenge, even though i am not a huge eater of chicken. But i love pre-planned meals, so i think it will even out!
