Low Carb Chicken Quesadillas (Crock Pot)

Low Carb Made With Mission Carb Balance Tortillas

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast (approx. 4 chicken breasts)
2 cups of chicken broth
2 tablespoons low carb taco seasoning (find at http://www.lowcarbcrock.com/2011/10/low-carb-taco-seasoning/) [Optional].

Low Carb Tortillas (optional – I prefer the Mission Carb Balance brand)
Shredded Cheese

Directions:
(1) Put all the ingredients in your Crock Pot. Give it a stir and and cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours until thoroughly cooked and tender.
(2) Remove the chicken from the liquid and shred it after it slightly cools. Add in any additional taco seasoning or hot sauce as desired.
(3) Place equal amounts meat and cheese on a low carb tortilla that has been pre-sprayed on the outside with non-stick cooking spray or the oil of your choice.
(4)  Bake in a Quesadilla Maker or in an oven or toaster oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until it is toasted on the outside and the cheese is melted. Cut the quesadilla into wedges and serve.
In red text above is the Quesadilla Maker I have had for years and I love it.  It is great for a crowd or party. You can put out all the fixins and let your guests decide what to make.

    Hi there! I follow you on Facebook as well. You have great recipe ideas. Quick question – do I use one or two tortillas for the quesadilla? Thanks!

    • Hi, the I use 2 (one for the bottom, one for the top). When it comes out I slice it in triangles with a pizza cutter.

      Thanks! I am actually making these today. I used 4 nice size chicken breast and then shredded it as mentioned in your directions. The shredded chicken was approximately three cups, which I was able to make three individual quesadillas. You mentioned the serving size is 4-6. Is that per individual quesadilla or per wedge? Thank you!

    • A yield of about 3 cups of shredded chicken sounds about right. I get 4 to 6 servings because I don’t put a whole cup of shredded chicken on each quesadilla; more like 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup.
