Chicken, Bacon & Avocado Quesadillas
4 medium-sized flour tortilla shells
1 lb chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
salt and pepper
1/2 cup scallions, diced
8 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
*side note on the bacon. I have recently discovered making bacon in the oven on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet. MUCH less grease! And spatter too. Lay them on a cooling rack in a cookie sheet, oven at 400 degrees, 15 minutes per side. (or until your desired doneness. I dig the fryed crunch.)
1or 2 avocado, diced
Sharp cheddar and fresh Mozzerella cheese
2 tbsp butter
Add a small amount of butter to a skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions and saute about 2-3 mins until softened. Add the chicken in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 5 mins or until chicken is golden and cooked through, flipping just once during cooking. Remove the chicken and scallions to a plate and rinse out the skillet.Add about 1/2 tbsp butter to the skillet over medium heat. When foamy, add a tortilla and swirl it around to get it nice and buttery. Layer one side of the tortilla with chicken, bacon, avocado, scallions and a little cheese. Use tongs or spatula to flip the other half of the tortilla over and press down. Cook the tortilla for about 1-2 mins on each side or until golden brown and crispy.
Turn the heat down, repeat with the rest of the tortillas, adding butter to the skillet as needed.
