INGREDIENTS
4 8-inch flour tortillas
2 teaspoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup shredded cooked chicken (about 5-6 ounces)
2 ounces reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup sliced black olives (one 2.25oz. can, drained)
1/4 cup finely sliced green onion (about 3 green onions)
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño pepper
Salsa
Instructions
Lightly brush one side of each tortilla with 1/2 teaspoon melted butter. Place on the work surface buttered side down. Preheat the Cuisinart™ Griddler™ in the closed griddle position to 350°F. (check temp setting on test griddle)
Place chicken, olives, green onion, and jalapeño pepper in a medium bowl and stir to blend. Divide mixture equally among the 4 tortillas, placing to one side of the tortilla. Fold each tortilla in half. Place 2 tortillas on the bottom griddle and close. Bake quesadillas for 5 to 6 minutes - until chicken is hot, cheese is melted, and tortillas are lightly golden brown and crispy. Place on a rack in a slow (175-200°F) oven to keep warm. Repeat cooking for remaining 2 quesadillas.
Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with salsa.
