Chicken Cutlet Quesadilla Recipe

Flour tortilla as many as you need for your family (1 - 10 inch makes 4 cut into triangles)

Chicken Cutlets click for recipe or use any frozen breaded fried or baked chicken tenders (I use two cutlets sliced per tortilla.)

Provolone shredded mixed with Mozzarella (or use whatever kind you like of shredded cheeses)

Italian Salsa homemade click here for recipe or use store bought

Optional: sour cream, salsa, avocado, shredded lettuce, tomatoes chopped, chopped peppers.

Heat a griddle pan on low. Add a little butter to the pan and teaspoon of olive oil. Place 1 tortilla on the griddle top with sliced cutlets or tenders, sprinkle with cheese. Top with another tortilla. Cook on one side until browned and crispy. Flip and do the same on this side until crispy usually around 3 to 4 minutes on each side on low heat.

Cut into triangles with a pizza cutter. Serve with salsa, sour cream, shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes. Great with avocado and lime also!


  1. You're a woman after my own heart, Claudia. I, too, have used leftover cutlets--chicken, pork--for yummy quesadillas. I think I'm related to the Earl of Sandwich because whether it's a panini, a quesadilla, or any other version of bread and protein with cheese, I'm up for it. Happy New Year!

  2. Dear Claudia, I love left over cutlets. They always make a good sandwich. These sound great.

    I wish you and your family a Happy and Blessed New Year my friend.
    xoxo Catherine
