Number of Servings: 4


    1 tsp. olive oil
    12 oz. chicken breasts, cut into pieces
    1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
    3/4 cup thick-and-chunky salsa
    4 burrito size, low carb whole wheat tortillas (mission)
    2 cups 2% shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    Light sour cream for dipping (about 8 oz)


1) Cook Chicken in Olive oil, until cooked through and slightly brown.

2) Combine the chicken, lettuce, and salsa; divide evenly among the 4 quesidillas. Place on one half ot the tortilla, leaving room to fold tortilla over. Sprinkle the mixture with cheese (1/2 cup on each tortilla). Fold quesidilla in half.

3) Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Cook the quesadillas two at a time until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes on each side at low to medium heat (the first side may take a few extra minutes); turn over carefully with wide spatula and cook the other side the same way.

4) Cut each quesadilla into quarters and serve with a side of veggies (corn makes a great side) and 2 tbsp of light sour cream for dipping.
