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 cup fresh (uncooked) corn kernels, about 1 cob 250 mL
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms 375 mL
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced red onion 125 mL
  • 1 pkg Compliments Burrito Kit 478 g
  • 2 cups Compliments Balance Part Skim Mozzarella Shredded Cheese 500 mL


  • 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.
