Pesto Chicken Quesadilla

My hubby called this lazy meal whenever he saw this being served! >.<" hahaha But I love preparing this for my family as they are easy to prepare and taste absolutely wonderful! 

Spread a flour tortilla with homemade pesto, filled 1/2 side with choice of your greens and cheese and top with freshly grilled shredded not attempt to overfill it! You want the quesadilla thin and crisp enough without overspilling of fillings ;)

Fold up the flour tortilla and press down lightly and firmly. Brush with melted butter on both side and place it in a heated griller and cook till golden brown!

Best serve while is still hot which the quesadilla is crisp and fillings are melty good!

  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 pcs flour tortilla 
  • 2 homemade pesto cubes
  • melted butter 
toppings :
  • tomatoes
