  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir margarita mix, lemon juice, lime juice, and garlic powder together in a large bowl.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain excess oil from chicken. Pour margarita mixture into the skillet with chicken; simmer until most of margarita mixture is evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer and drain chicken to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Layer 4 tortillas with chicken, Cheddar cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese; top with remaining 4 tortillas. Place the prepared quesadillas, 1 or 2 at a time, on a large baking sheet.
  5. Bake quesadillas in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining quesadillas; cut into quarters to serve.

Ok. I expected a stronger lime flavor. May try marinating chicken overnight in the lime mixture.

We liked this a lot, especially with the usual added accompaniments (sour cream, green onions, avocado). I think that next time I make this I'll cut up the chicken and go directly to cooking it...

Just made these tonight and they had so much flavor! I diced the chicken, covered it in margarita mix, and refrigerated over night. When I cooked the chicken, I added fresh mix right in, along...

Disgusting. my children, husband and I all found this to be awful.

Tried it twice. 2nd time I used skinny girl margarita mix and would not recommend that unless you doctor it up a bit.

Simple and so tasty!

The chicken was so good it almost didn't make it to the tortilla. I seasoned chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder and browned it (high heat) in avocado oil before adding margarita mixture...
