Speedy Chicken Quesadillas

  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Total Time: 35 min
  • Serves: 8


  • 1 Rotisserie chicken, skin removed and breast meat only, diced
  • 1 Orange pepper, diced
  • 1 Fresh (uncooked) corn kernels, about 1 cob 250mL
  • 1 1/2 Sliced mushrooms 375mL
  • 1/2 Finely sliced red onion 125mL
  • 1 Compliments Burrito Kit 478g
  • 2 Compliments Balance Part Skim Mozzarella Shredded Cheese 500mL


  • Step 1

    Preheat a panini press or a skillet to medium-high heat.

  • Step 2

    Combine chicken, pepper, corn, mushrooms and onion. Season with the burrito seasoning mix. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Sprinkle bottom half of each tortilla with 2 tbsp (30 mL) cheese. Divide chicken mixture evenly between tortillas. Sprinkle each evenly with remaining cheese. Fold tortillas in half.

  • Step 3

    Lightly oil panini press or skillet and cook 2 quesadillas at a time until crisp and golden on both sides and heated through, about 5 to 7 min. If using a skillet, flip quesadillas over when brown on the underside. Cut in half and serve with salsa (from kit) for dipping.


To remove kernels from a cob of corn, use a sharp knife and cut downward, allowing the kernels to fall on a plate. In this recipe, simply add the corn to the other ingredients – there's no need to cook it first.
