Recipe and photo sourced from Food and Wine
- 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Eight 8-inch flour tortillas
- 6oz cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 cup of fresh Chestnut Hill Farms pineapple, diced
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large pot, cover the chicken breasts with water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove the chicken from the water and let cool. Shred the chicken into bite-size pieces, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Layer the tortillas with half of the cheese and top with the chicken and the pineapple. Add the remaining cheese and spread the filling evenly throughout each tortilla. Top with the remaining tortillas.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place a filled tortilla on the pan and cook until the bottom is golden. Carefully flip the quesadilla and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until the second side is golden and the cheese is completely melted.
- Repeat step three for the remaining quesadillas, allow to cool, cut into pieces and serve warm.
