How To Make The Best Quick & Tasty Snack

I'm going to let you in a little secret of mine.... It's the best tasting snack or quick dinner out there...
Or, at least it is for our family!
Today I'm going to show you how to make a Chicken Club Quesadilla...
Doesn't that look good?

Make sure you always have the following things in your house...
Ranch dressing(chipotle ranch is REALLY good on these), cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and...

...pre-cooked grilled chicken strips(no breading). 
I happened to have Trader Joe's chicken strips, but the next time you grill chicken, just grill a couple of extra chicken breasts, slice them up and freeze them in a ziplock.  Do the same with bacon. I have a baggie in the freezer with cooked and chopped up bacon bits that I cooked up the last time we had bacon.

Since your chicken and bacon are frozen, heat those up on the griddle or frying pan first.

Then put your tortilla on the griddle and add cheese, chicken and bacon.

When the cheese is almost melted, add tomatoes.

When the tortilla starts to brown, pull it off the griddle and add shredded lettuce and ranch dressing.

Then fold it over and you're done! You can cut this up in three pieces, as long as you don't put too much in the tortilla like I did. I was making this one for Mr. Fanatic and he likes his in one piece.

Of course, Mr. F. likes to have a good bottle of beer with his Chicken Club Quesadilla and just had to show it off.

The next time you're at the grocery store be sure to pick up the necessary items you need to make these because they are SOOOOOOOO GOOD!

Hope you have a great day!



  1. This looks sooo good & it's easy! I could make it. That's a great tip about freezing chicken. I never thought to do that. I always buy the frozen fajita chicken. Aside from being healthier, your way would be much cheaper too! Thanks for the tip.

  2. Yum! I'll be making this for sure. I've been making chicken quesadillas for years with the Tyson frozen fahita chicken meat and a frozen package of red,green and yellow peppers and onions. I believe it's from Birds Eye (hard to find) then of course the cheese and I grill them too just like you but use olive cooking oil spray to keep them from sticking. We love them and eat them often so your version is going to be a wonderful added change of pace. I love it! Thanks!

  3. Yum, this would be perfect for my daughter and me on the nights when my picky husband isn't around for dinner.

  4. Yummy! What a fast, easy and delicious recipe! I'm saving this one, for sure! Thanks for sharing. xo

  5. That looks good to me and I'm a vegetarian!! May have to make that for my kiddo!
