Clean Chicken Quesadillas

Instead of running out the door to Mi Rancho for my Mexican cravings, we decided to make some clean chicken quesadillas.  They were fantastic and very filling!  There is so much you can do with shredded chicken, so I've started cooking my chicken in the crockpot for an entire week.  We use it on sandwiches, healthy pizza, salads, etc.  Cooking a massive quantity that is plain makes it easy to use in just about anything. In fact, while I was baking lemon and carrot cake protein bars this afternoon, I already had the crockpot full of chicken breasts cooking for the week.

Clean Chicken Quesadillas

  • Pulled chicken
  • Multi-grain tortillas
  • Sauteed onions and spinach

  • Fill half of the multi-grain tortilla with chicken, quinoa, onions, spinach, black beans, tomatoes and cheese.
