Whole wheat pita bread
Shredded cheddar cheese
Cooked chicken, sliced or shredded
Salsa for serving, optional
- Carefully cut the pita bread in half horizontally. Rub a little olive oil on the outside of both halves. Layer cheese, then chicken, then a bit more cheese on onehalf. I use about a quarter cup of each, but you can eyeball it. Top with the other pita half and grill on a panini maker for three minutes. You can also grill oneside at a time on the stove top. A cast iron pan or grill pan will work especially well.
Tip: For a crusty top, sprinkle about a teaspoon or two of additional cheese on top of the quesadilla prior to grilling.
