Chicken, bacon and cheese is such a great combo! Chili’s has chicken bacon and ranch quesadillas that I love (minus the ranch) so I made my own homemade recipe so we can have them whenever we want! Hope you’ll love them, too!
Cheesy Bacon Chicken Quesadillas
- 4 flour tortillas (soft taco size)
- 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken
- 1 tbs vegetable oil
- 1 packet fajita seasoning mix
- 1/3 cup of water
- 5 pieces of bacon
- shredded shard cheddar and monterey jack cheeses
- Sour cream and toppings as desired
Preheat oven to 350°. Cut about 5 pieces of bacon into small strips. Cook until done and drain grease. Set aside. Cut chicken into small pieces and cook in skillet with oil until done (about 10 minutes). Add fajita seasoning and 1/3 cup of water and cook as directed on packet. On a baking sheet, lay two flour tortillas out and sprinkle the cheese on both. Add the cooked, seasoned chicken to both tortillas. You should be able to fit half of the cooked, seasoned chicken on each tortilla. Add in the cooked bacon and more shredded cheese. Put the other two flour tortillas on top to complete the quesadilla. Bake in the over for about 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted to your liking. Cut each quesadilla into 4 pieces with a pizza cutter and enjoy!
I like to add just sour cream to my quesadillas, but you can add lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, or anything else you like! And this is a really easy recipe to make as well as customize to your liking. These are super easy to save in the fridge and reheat for later, saying there are leftovers 😉 This is a super easy meal that I like to make and I hope you enjoy it as well!
