2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 oz. shredded Mexican blend cheese
4 flour tortillas
1 packet fajita seasoning

Sour cream
Salsa/chopped tomatoes
Shredded lettuce
Black beans

Makes: 2 large quesadillas 

What To Do:

1. In a between pan, saute chopped up chicken, with 1 tbsp olive oil and diced garlic until chicken is no longer pink. Add in fajita seasoning and cook according to directions on the packet.

2. In a separate pan, saute chopped onions and peppers with 1 tbsp olive oil for about 8-10 minutes on medium heat.

3. Place one flour tortilla on greased baking sheet. Top generously with cooked chicken, onions and peppers.

4. Layer with cheese and secure a 2nd flour tortilla over the mixture.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes on 350 degrees until the top starts to become golden brown.

6. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 4 large pieces or 8 small pieces.

Serve with sour cream and other condiments of your choice. I suggested a few above.
