During the month of February I will be featuring some of my recipes that have recently been on the menu for Gluten Free Suppers. Many of these recipes have not been published at Gluten Free Cooking School before because they are from my childhood or our pre-vegetarian days. And since they contain meat, I don’t have any pictures to share. But in these busy pre-baby and tax season day, I’ve decided to publish them anyway. Enjoy!
Chicken & Spinach Quesadillas
2 chicken breasts
16 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed
6 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
Feta cheese, optional
8 GF flour tortillas
Cooking Directions: Place chicken breasts in pot of water and bring to a simmer. Cook chicken until there is no pink in the middle. Drain and set aside; shred chicken when cool.
Squeeze water from the thawed spinach and place in a bowl. Add cream cheese, oregano, salt, and shredded chicken. Stir to combine. Spread 1/4 of the spinach mixture over a large flour tortilla, sprinkle with Feta cheese and top with another tortilla. Cook quesadilla in a lightly oiled skillet over medium heat until both sides are golden. Slice into fourths and serve with sour cream and salsa.
Serving Suggestion: Brown White Rice (1 c white rice, 1/2 c butter, 14 oz beef broth, 14 oz chicken broth, dash of garlic powder) Place all ingredients in a casserole dish and bake at 425 degrees for one hour.
