I’m a big fan of caramelized onions, a big fan of chicken, a big fan of quesadillas, and a really big fan of recipes you can modify to suit the tastes of you and your family. So this is a winner for me!
1 large onion
1-2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
1-1/2 to 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (I use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, or you can poach your own)
1 cup or more shredded cheese (any variety)
8 flour tortillas (medium size, about 10″ in diameter)

- There are almost too many variations to mention. Add some bell peppers (chopped) to the pan while frying the onions. Or, for an extra kick, try some jalapenos! Have some leftover broccoli? Chop it up and add it to the frypan. Or, try some minced garlic! Maybe add some tomato slices between the chicken and the cheese. Really you could add anything you’d like.
- Serve with salsa, or sour cream, or both. Or, as is.
- These reheat well in the microwave. They also freeze very well.
