  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (such as cheddar, Monterey Jack, or Mexican blend)
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Sour cream, guacamole, and additional salsa for serving


  1. Prepare the Chicken: If you don’t have cooked chicken on hand, you can quickly cook chicken breast by boiling, grilling, or sautéing it until fully cooked. Once cooked, shred the chicken using two forks.
  2. Assemble the Quesadillas: Lay out two tortillas on a flat surface. Divide the shredded chicken evenly between the two tortillas, spreading it out in an even layer. Top each tortilla with shredded cheese, salsa, and sliced green onions (if using). Place the remaining two tortillas on top to form sandwiches.
  3. Cook the Quesadillas: Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Once hot, carefully transfer one quesadilla to the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortillas are golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted. Repeat with the second quesadilla.
  4. Serve: Remove the quesadillas from the skillet and let them cool for a minute before slicing into wedges. Serve hot with sour cream, guacamole, and additional salsa on the side for dipping.

Enjoy the deliciousness of Quick and Easy Chicken Quesadillas, a crowd-pleasing favorite that’s perfect for any occasion, from weeknight dinners to game day gatherings!
