Buffalo Chicken Cutlet Quesadillas

A few words about this flavor bomb of a quesadilla. My dear husband is an avid lover of buffalo chicken. When in doubt, it’s his go-to meal when it’s on any menu at a restaurant. My intuition told me to create a quesadilla, but instead of just using plain old seasoned grilled chicken, using a breaded moist buffalo cutlet. The result? Glorious delicious flavor and a restaurant quality meal in under 30 minutes. How great is that? Give it a try for yourself and you’ll fall in love!

 

Ingredients:
4 thinly sliced boneless skinless chicken cutlets
2 eggs, beaten and seasoned with salt and pepper
1 ½ cups of plain breadcrumbs

Mikes Red Hot Buffalo Sauce

Whole Grain Flour Tortillas (or regular, to your liking)
1 Package of Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese

Optional Sides: Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, Celery, Blue Cheese/Ranch Dressing.

 

Instructions:

To start, we want to fry the chicken cutlets. To prep, dip each cutlet with egg, then breadcrumbs. Set aside. In a large oiled skillet, fry the cutlets until browned and crispy. Coat each cutlet with a light amount of hot sauce on each side. Slice into one-inch pieces, and then again down the middle to create small Lego sized pieces. In a preheated grill pan on medium-low heat, place one tortilla down on the pan. Coat with cheese first, chicken, and then again cheese on top. Top with another tortilla and allow to melt for a few minutes.
