Chicken Quesadilla

I had some chicken left over at the house from a cookout this weekend.  It wasn’t really enough for a meal in itself but it was enough for a filling of some kind.  I thought about making a chicken noodle soup or a chicken caesar but eventually decided on a nice quesadilla.   I love quesadillas because they are so flexible. They can be as simple or complex as you like: plain cheese, chicken, pulled pork, shaved steak, you name it. Even the choice of vegetables is endless: caramelized onions, Pico de gallo, hot peppers. The list goes on. I like to fill mine with garden tomatoes and scallions to give it extra flavor.  This is an easy and straightforward recipe that only requires a griddle to make.
