Cut up the chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Cook the chicken over medium heat until no longer pink. Try seasoning your chicken with taco seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, and other spices.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the salsa, cilantro, and lime juice. Stir in your chicken, cheese, and vegetables until coated with the salsa mix.
Spray with tortilla with the non-stick cooking spray and cut it in half. Spray a skillet with the non-stick cooking spray. Put the skillet over medium heat. Place one half of the tortilla on the skillet and spread out your chicken and salsa mixture onto the tortilla. Place the other half of the tortilla on top.
Let the bottom side cook until golden brown or whatever crispiness you prefer. The more golden, the crispier. When the bottom half is done, carefully and quickly flip the quesadilla over with a spatula and cook the other half of tortilla. When that side is done, remove from heat and you are ready to eat!
This recipe makes one serving. You get one serving of vegetables, protein, low fat dairy, and whole grain.
