Step by Step Instructions:
When you need a light meal for one, the this Chicken Quesadilla with Brie & Nectarine Chia Jam is a perfect choice. Here’s what you’ll need: 1/2 a Chicken Breast (shredded), Fresh Spinach, Brie Cheese, Whole Wheat Tortillas, and 3-4 tablespoons of Nectarine Chia Jam (or your favorite jam!). That’s it!
Begin by spreading the jam all over one side of a tortilla, because you want a nice base for the quesadilla.
Then heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat and place the tortilla in the center of the pan jam side up.
Then add a handful or so of fresh spinach leaves to the top of the tortilla to form a nice layer.
Spread the shredded chicken breast over the top of the spinach.
Thinly cut your brie, and sneak a slice of cheese so you can enjoy the mild flavor of this creamy cheese.
Then place the slices of brie over the top of the chicken in a single layer.
Place another tortilla over the top, and then you’ll cook until the tortilla on the bottom is starting to brown.
Carefully flip the quesadilla once the first since is brown and slightly crispy, and cook on the other side until that tortilla is brown. Then you have a nice crust for your Chicken Quesadilla with Brie & Nectarine Chia Jam.
Transfer your finished quesadilla to a cutting board and let it sit for a couple of minutes, so it will stay together better when it’s cut.
Finally you’ll slice the Chicken Quesadilla with Brie & Nectarine Chia Jam into 4-6 slices with a pizza slicer or sharp knife. Then serve immediately! Happy quesadilla making!
