Christmas cannot come soon enough. This is my last full week of work before the holidays, and I am so anxious for the festivities to begin. Today at work a mens choir came and sang Christmas songs. They sang very well, and the concert heightened my anticipation for next week.
I am posting this un-Christmasy recipe even though I am very eager for Christmas. I think I mentioned this in my last post, but my sister recently had a baby girl, whom I have not yet seen.
Even though this is a decidedly non-festive post, the recipe is delectable and easy. I baked a boneless, skinless chicken thigh. I shredded it with a fork when it was cool enough to handle.
I layered mozzarella cheese on one half of a large tortilla. I promise this is my last post with a weird, green tortilla.
I added some barbeque sauce to the shredded chicken. This is clearly not homemade barbeque sauce.
I placed a layer of chicken on top of the cheese. This is about half a thigh.
Then I added some red onion. I pulled this onion from the freezer, so it was pretty soft. If you are using a fresh onion you would probably want to fry it in some butter to soften it a bit.
I then toasted it in a frying pan. I don't use any oil or butter when I toast my quesadillas.
This isn't the most authentic quesadilla you'll ever eat, but that doesn't mean it won't fill your heart with joy and your life with purpose. This is a perfectly toasted quesadilla because the tortilla is crunchy and the cheese is gooey.
