I thought I would pass along a quick dinner that we have come to turn to and love around here. Fast, good, easy dinners are what it’s all about for us. When we moved into our home, the kitchen had a built in griddle on the stove. I never in a million years thought I would use this but we would it at least 1-2 times a week. At some point, one of us had the idea to try quesadillas on it and it was a success! This is even becoming a go to meal when we have company – it’s easy because everyone can customize theirs to exactly how they want it.
Here’s what you will need:
- Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix for Chicken (only if you like your chicken flavored, we’ve made it with and without the seasoning but prefer the extra kick the seasoning adds)
- Vegetable Oil for cooking the chicken (part of the seasoning packet directions)
- Shredded Cheese
- Other options to include: tomato, onion, lettuce, etc. (I’m telling you, we are simple)
As always, the most time consuming part is dicing the chicken and cooking it:
Don’t forget to add the oil! (You can see the griddle here under the oil)
I continue to dice up the chicken as it’s cooking to get the pieces to the size we prefer.
Once it’s nice and brown, add in the seasoning packet and water per the directions.
While the chicken cooks, I cut up any extra items we want to include
It’s also a good idea to go ahead and be heating up your skillet or griddle. Once the chicken is ready, I butter a tortilla and place it on the griddle. Then I add my ingredients to half and fold it over. I cook it on each side until it browns to our liking.
Then, it’s ready to transfer to your plate for the final steps.
I open mine back up and add sauce, fold back over and cut into pieces.
