A perfect chicken quesadilla reicpe is the staple on every Mexican restaurant menu, but they’re a snap to make yourself at home. Roast up your own chicken breast or make it even easier on yourself by using a prepared rotisserie chicken.
Game plan: These quesadillas can also be made on an outdoor grill. Just cook over high heat directly on the grates until the cheese is melted and the bottoms start to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. You’ll need to make guacomole and salsa before you begin.

We love a good chicken and cheese quesadilla, and we also love a versatile, crisp, dry white which always goes well with poultry yet cuts the richness and saltiness of cheese. That's why we chose the 2014 La Domitienne Picpoul de Pinet for a uniquely perfect pair to a rather traditional dish. Make sure to include this always-popular quesadilla with this suprising chilled wine at your next fiesta and your guests will thank you.Buy on Glassful ›
