  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Slice chicken into bite-size strips.

  • Stir Alfredo sauce and chicken strips into mushroom mixture; simmer for a few minutes.

  • Melt butter in a separate large skillet. Place a tortilla in the melted butter.

  • Scoop about 1/5 chicken alfredo mixture onto 1 half of warm tortilla.

  • 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.

  • Carefully flip quesadilla with a spatula and lightly brown the other side of tortilla, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

  • 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! Read More

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.
