Chicken Quesadillas


  • The meat of one whole chicken shredded (I cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker all day. It makes about 6 cups of shredded meat depending on the size of the chicken.)
  • 14-16 sprouted burrito-sized tortillas you may need more tortillas if you add additional ingredients like mushrooms, etc.
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 3 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Optional - Add any other fillings you'd like.


  • Heat a cast iron griddle over medium heat. (You can use a pan if you don't have a griddle)
  • Combine the chicken, salt and seasonings in a bowl.
  • Put a thin layer of cheese on a tortilla, followed by a thin layer of chicken.
  • Top the chicken layer with another thin layer of cheese.
  • Put another tortilla on top of the cheese and chicken layers.
  • Cook on the griddle until the bottom is browned.
  • Flip the quesadilla and cook the other side until it is browned.
  • Cut into halves or quarters and serve.
