Chicken Parmesan Quesadilla

When I made the Baked Chicken Parmesan, I wondered what it would taste like in a quesadilla.  I love making quesadillas because they are an easy go to meal.  We make sure to always keep tortillas in the house and always have the other ingredients for this meal, so when we don’t know what else to make we make quesadillas.  We make them about once a week. The nice thing about quesadillas is that my husband and I can make our own individual quesadilla and have whatever kind we feel like having.  
I am usually not the biggest fan of marinara sauce, except for on pizza.  However, this chicken parmesan quesadilla is so good.  It tastes just like chicken parmesan, but it takes half of the work and time.  Every time we have made quesadillas since I first made this, I have chose to made the Chicken Parmesan Quesdaillas for myself.  This is my favorite type of quesadilla, it tastes great, and is so easy to make.  This makes a great easy quick dinner or lunch.  I recommend that you try it!

Chicken Parmesan Quesadilla

1 large tortilla

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1-2 ounces pre-cooked chicken strips, cubed
1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
4 tablespoons marinara sauce.  

1.  Grease a skillet and and put over medium heat.  Put the tortilla in the skillet and cover the whole tortilla with mozzarella cheese.  Add the chicken on one side of the tortilla.   Then add the Parmesan Cheese on top of the chicken and the marinara sauce on top of the Parmesan Cheese. 

3.  Once the mozzarella cheese begins to melt, fold the cheese only side over the chicken side of the tortilla.   Cook for 2 minutes then flip to the other side of the quesadilla.  Cook for another 2 minutes, each side should be browned and crispy.   Remove from heat. To serve cut the quesadilla into 3 pieces.
