This is for the SOF11 Chicken Recipe Challenge.

The recipe was too long for a simple 6x6 so I made a folding recipe card. I used Prima chicken wire background stamp. My chicken was pre-colored, courtesy of Google images. I embellished Chickie-Poo by adding Glossy Accents to him. I added my new favorite neutral Pumice Stone Distress ink, Blue Saphire for the chicken wire and some Liquid Pearls. That blue color rubbed around on the recipe card was an accidental design feature. I set my page down on the magazine I was using to stamp on, & oops! I had more cool distressing. I like how that turned out.

The recipe:

Cheesy Chicken, Bacon & Avocado Quesadillas

4 medium-sized flour tortilla shells
1 lb chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
salt and pepper
1/2 cup scallions, diced
8 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
1 avocado, diced
mild cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tbsp butter

Arrange bacon on a (cookie) cooling rack and set it on top of sheet pan. If you don’t have a cooling rack, you can just put the bacon straight on the sheet pan. Or in a 9×13 baking dish. Either way will work. Place bacon in a cold oven, turn heat to 400, and cook 15 mins per side.

Add 1/2 tbsp bacon drippings to a skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions and saute about 2-3 mins until softened. Add the chicken in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 5 mins or until chicken is golden and cooked through, flipping just once during cooking. Remove the chicken and scallions to a plate and rinse out the skillet.

Add about 1/2 tbsp butter to the skillet over medium heat. When foamy, add a tortilla and swirl it around to get it nice and buttery. Layer one side of the tortilla with chicken, bacon, avocado, and a little cheese. Use tongs to flip the other half of the tortilla over and press down. Cook the tortilla for about 1-2 mins on each side or until golden brown and crispy.

Repeat with the rest of the tortillas, adding a little more butter for each tortilla, as needed. Eat & enjoy!

Makes 4 quesadillas.

I have pictures!

I am not a cook, but I don't have to be to see that this recipe is delish! Recipe and photos courtesy of Kevin and Amanda's blog. []
