Chicken + Cheese Quesadella Pie

This looks like the perfect Saturday night supper or Sunday Brunch to me. Yum. I'm posting early so you can go to the store to buy anything you don't have on hand. 

This is genius -- the crust is one 10" flour tortilla, burrito size.

I would probably use several frozen chicken breasts from Costco, cooked and shredded, of course. I always have a bag in the freezer.


1 (10-inch) flour tortilla (burrito size)
1 rotisserie chicken, skin discarded, meat shredded into bite-sized pieces (about 3 cups)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
(optional) 1/3 cup drained jarred pickled jalapeños, chopped
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
2 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder


Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Grease 9-inch pie plate. Press tortilla into prepared pie plate and spray lightly with cooking spray. Toss chicken, cilantro, jalapeños (optional), 1 cup cheese, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in large bowl until combined. Spread filling over tortilla.
Whisk eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt in bowl until smooth. Slowly pour over filling, then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until surface is golden brown, about 16-20 minutes, and when knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.

I'm copying and going to try this recipe, Rosemary. It looks easy (yes, love the tortilla "crust") and scrumptious. Thanks for posting it!

Erica and Mama Pea....

I'm going to try to make a chicken pot pie using this recipe with the addition of mixed vegetables.

It does look delicious and easy. Glad you like it.

xo, Rosemary

This looks delicious. We just enjoyed a quiche and salad for dinner. This looks like a winner for another weekend.
