Ultimate Fast-From-Frozen With Extra Chicken Chicken Quesadilla

Do you like my blog entry title? I just couldn't resist putting in an extra chicken to tell you about one of my favorite things on earth to eat.

I combine three things to make the ultimate fast food chicken quesadilla at home. Start with a Stouffer's Chicken Quesadilla Flatbread Melt, then add some extra Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Chicken Breast Strips, Southwestern Seasoned, and then top it off with crushed red pepper, the kind usually served at my local pizza place. The prep time is maybe a minute to dice the chicken and spread it around the quesadilla, and then 3 minutes to microwave the frozen quesadilla.

CAUTION: There is a similar product called "Stouffer's Chicken Alfredo Flatbread Melt" which I do not like as well as the one used for this recipe. But never be afraid to experiment (within reason, of course!)

  • Stouffer's Flatbread Chicken Quesadilla - 370 calories
  • 1/5 of a package of Deli Fresh Chicken - 66 calories
  • A dash of peppers - insignificant calories
  • Total Calories per serving approximately 436

The cost per serving at time of publication was less than $4.00 - but sometimes I can catch the Stouffer's product on sale at 2 for $5 instead of the normal 2 for $6
