You can have it both ways!


This was dinner last night. Don't you just love all of this color! One of the things I think is cool about this recipe is that is can be cooked this way in the oven like a pizza or.....

with a lid on it and grilled up like a quesadilla!

It's simply delicious either way!

Chicken mushroom bacon and cheese quesadilla/pizza

Ingredients

Serves 4

1 chicken breast, cooked the thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
4 slices turkey bacon, chopped
2 oz feta cheese
1 cup sharp cheddar
diced tomato
chopped chives
Balsamic vinegar
medium sized whole wheat tortillas

Heat oil in a skillet, add chopped bacon and cook until crisp. Add mushrooms and cook for another minute or two, stirring.

Grab a tortilla and layer cheddar cheese, chicken, bacon, mushroom, feta, tomato and chives.

Pizza Style: Place into a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes or so. Watch carefully! Remove from oven and drizzle with Balsamic.

Quesadilla Style: Place on the griddle, drizzle with Balsamic. Place another tortilla on top. Grill on both sides until lightly browned.

The Balsamic added the zippy flavor I love in my recipes. I think you'll love this too!

And now I leave you with a laugh. :D

I love all those colours. And balsamic vinegar too, it adds such a great flavour to everything. Hear me, I live exactly where balsamic is produced, I must love it!

Jenn said...

It's a pizzadilla since it can be made in two ways. lol. Anything with cheese and fresh tomatoes is a winner in my book.

I remember the chef from sesame street. I always liked him.

Cathy said...

I'm going for the quesadilla style. I'm drooling already and dinner is hours away.

the restaurant I used to work at in Newport Beach had a jack cheese, mushroom, bacon quesadilla that was SO delicious!

angelinthekitchen said...

Ooh, I think I like the quesadilla idea best. The gooey cheese makes it look so much unhealthier than it is ...

~Kathie~ said...

This looks delicious!!! And the video is too cute- I haven't seen the Swedish Chef for years!

ck said...

Perfect timing, as always. I'm just going to add this to my menu rotation for next week.

Are you compiling all of these for a book?

Don't you just love how the Swedish Chef is a puppet but has human hands - that always cracked me up!!! Ever since I discovered feta cheese, I use it all the time - YUMMM. If you call anything a pizza I'll eat it so I think I'll try it that way first. Thanks again, girl ~ ♥

What a great mid-week dinner, you can eat it with your hands too!

Haha I love the Swedish chef! It reminds me of the clock my mom used to have in her kitchen. The clock's big and little hands were wooden spoons :-)
