Ingredients

  • 6 small flour tortillas
  • 4 Ounces Asiago cheese, grated
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dry rosemary leaves
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 Cups sun-dried tomatoes, such as Bella Sun Luci Julienne Cut Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil with Italian Herbs, divided and oil reserved
  • 1/3 Cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons red onion, rough chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dry basil
  • 1 Teaspoon dry parsley
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil and evenly arrange 3 tortillas on top. Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly on top of each tortilla and top with sliced chicken, rosemary, and ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes. Top with remaining cheese and place a second tortilla on top of each one. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 12 minutes. Gently flip each quesadilla and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool for 3-5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Transfer to a cutting board and slice each quesadilla into 6 triangles.

In a mini chopper or food processor combine yogurt, balsamic vinegar, red onion, garlic, basil, parsley, ½ tablespoon of reserved oil from the sun-dried tomato jar, and salt and pepper, to taste. Blend until smooth. Serve warm with quesadilla triangles.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
