Chicken & Broccoli Quesadilla

Meghanne-Renée Godwin


When I made this, I needed something healthy that would also satisfy my taste buds. The flavor of garlic dispersed through the healthy taste of soft broccoli and meaty chicken is more than satisfying to the mouth without causing the urge to workout after eating.

How to Make Chicken & Broccoli Quesadilla


  1. Rinse and separate broccoli into extra small pieces. Peel and mince garlic.
  2. Season chicken with sea salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash Original. Cook chicken with 1 tbsp of the olive oil on medium heat. Cook until browned on each side.
  3. Remove chicken and cut/shred into flat pieces. It's okay if it's not fully cooked in the center. Cooked or not, put chicken back into the pan.
  4. Add remaining 3 tbsp of olive oil, the broccoli pieces, and minced garlic. Stir to evenly distribute the olive oil throughout the broccoli and chicken. Season with sea salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash Original (if desired). Cook for several minutes, until broccoli is soft.
  5. Remove chicken and broccoli mixture, and set aside. Place tortilla on pan and immediately put on cheddar cheese (about 1/4 c). Sprinkle 1/4 of the broccoli and chicken mixture on top of cheddar, then add about 1/4 c of the Monterey Jack cheese. Place tortilla on top and flip. Cook for a minute or two, or until slightly crunchy. Repeat this step 3 more times. Enjoy!
