Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas
INGREDIENTS

 


2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs


 


2 cups Buffalo sauce, divided


 


4 cups shredded Mexican-blend cheese


 


12 tablespoons cream cheese


 


1½ tablespoons vegetable oil


 


12 7- to 8-inch flour tortillas


 


Blue cheese dressing, for serving


 


Celery sticks, for serving


 

Instructions

1. Turn on the Cuisinart


® Griddler®. Select Griddle and set to 425°F.


2. Once preheated, put the chicken on the Griddler


®. Close the Griddler® and set the timer for 8 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked through. Remove from Griddler® and let cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, thinly slice the chicken and toss with 1½ cups of the Buffalo sauce. Reserve.


3. While the chicken is cooking, combine the cream cheese with the remaining (½ cup) Buffalo sauce. Spread about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of one of the tortillas, leaving about a 1-inch border all around. Sprinkle with


1/ 3 cup of the shredded cheese. Top with ½ scoop of the cooked chicken mixture and an additional 1/ 3 cup shredded cheese. Spread 1 more tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture onto another tortilla, also leaving about a 1-inch border. Put the tortilla, cream-cheese side down, onto the bottom tortilla. Brush the top with vegetable oil.


4. When the chicken is done cooking, decrease the temperature to 375°F. Once heated, put the quesadilla on the bottom plate and close the Griddler


®. Set the count-up timer and cook for about 3 to 3½ minutes, until cheese is melted and the top of the quesadilla is a little brown and crispy. Remove from Griddler®, let cool slightly and cut into 8 pieces. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
