Chicken Pesto Quesadilla

An Italian dish with a Mexican twist! Juicy and tender chicken harmonize perfectly with gourmet pesto tucked inside of a hyper-versatile CHI-CHI'S® Flour Tortilla.

16 minutes


  • 1/3 cup sliced cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons chopped tomato
  • 2 teaspoons prepared pesto
  • 1 CHI-CHI’S® Flour Tortilla
  • 2 fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. In a small bowl, combine chicken, tomato and pesto. Spoon mixture in center of tortilla; top with basil leaves and cheese.
  2. Fold tortilla sides over filling to create a square pocket. Flip seam side down into a lightly greased, non-stick skillet over medium heat; press firmly. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
