Easy Chicken Quesadillas

Awww summer is finally here! This is my favorite season… okay I also love autumn because of its fresh air and colors but back to the summer. There are so many things to do or should I say so many things I like to do. Although I’ve been playing golf for almost 2 months now and was fortunate to go to Rancho Mirage for a couple weeks back in April, summer is golf season… well to me it is! Besides golf, we enjoy cycling a lot. There are so many beautiful cycling trails here on the West Coast and the scenery is breathtaking!
Summer can also be very hot, so hot that I don’t really feel like cooking – yep it happens to me as well! It seems that I don’t really have an appetite and heavy meals are so out of the question. When this happens I want to enjoy light foods that are quick and easy to prepare.
There’s a dish that I like making when the temperature rises beyond the comfort zone and it is quesadillas. It’s a great dish that doesn’t take too much time to prep and by the time it’s ready, it probably took less than half an hour. I like to boil my chicken but I also enjoy this recipe with grilled chicken on the “barbie”! It’s a matter of how either of us feels that day…
Quesadillas is a great dish not only for its simplicity but also for its flavor! Personally, this dish is totally made for summer although I know some people who eat it all year round. In the video I show two techniques for making them; with a quesadilla machine or without one – the quesadilla machine was a gift I received when I was working as a food analyst for that American cooking website otherwise I would never buy one for myself. If you’ve never had this popular Mexican dish before, I highly suggest you try it… for the ones who have had it, now here’s a recipe you can make at home.
Bon Appétit!
