Directions

  1. Season chicken with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken in the hot oil until chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Pour out any excess grease from the pan.
  3. Cook and stir bacon and mushrooms in the same skillet over medium heat until mushrooms are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Slice chicken into bite-size strips.
  5. Stir Alfredo sauce and chicken strips into mushroom mixture; simmer for a few minutes.
  6. Melt butter in a separate large skillet. Place a tortilla in the melted butter.
  7. Scoop about 1/5 chicken alfredo mixture onto 1 half of warm tortilla.
  8. Sprinkle about 1/5 mozzarella cheese over chicken alfredo mixture layer; fold tortilla in half. Cook until bottom of tortilla is lightly browned and mozzarella is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. Carefully flip quesadilla with a spatula and lightly brown the other side of tortilla, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
  10. Slice quesadillas into thirds to serve.

These were quick and easy and made a great summer dinner. I love using the panini press to make quesadillas so I don't heat up the kitchen. I just used enough alfredo sauce to coat the chicken mixture - didn't want it soupy and messy. It was perfect for us!

I'm sorry this just wasn't for us. I made it as stated in the recipe, but the flavor combo didn't work for us, and it was a lot of trouble to make - It didn't look very appetizing after mixing in the alfredo sauce either - I think I would leave that out of the mix and just add some on top of the filling (or leave it off all together), but I won't be making this again.
