Ahh, quesadillas. I love them, especially Spinach and Feta Chicken Quesadillas. Just like anyone, I love to cook a filling dinner that is not only healthy but is also quick to make. When I am making my meal plan for the week, I try to use ingredients that I already have on hand. The other day when I was out grocery shopping I got a great deal on chicken breast, so there is a ton in my freezer. With all that chicken, this recipe was a perfect way to use some of it up. We can’t have a quesadilla without cheese, so since there was mozzarella and feta left in my refrigerator I added it as well.

The chicken can be prepared ahead of time, making less time in the kitchen needed to prepare this meal. If you do not have chicken breast on hand, you can also use rotisserie just as easily. After you assemble these easy quesadillas and cook for a few minutes you have a dish that your family will love and request seconds of. The Spinach and Feta Chicken Quesadillas are filling on their own, but you can serve them with a small spinach salad or fresh tomatoes. Also, I like to slice up a few avocados to enjoy along with my quesadillas.
