  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 3 to 4 minutes. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Place 1 tortilla on prepared baking sheet; layer with 1/2 of the Gorgonzola cheese, spinach, and chicken mixture; top with remaining Gorgonzola cheese. Place remaining tortilla on top and gently press down to flatten the quesadilla.

  • Bake quesadilla in preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes; cut into triangles.

Cook's Note:

Substitute cooking spray for the olive oil, if desired.

Gorgonzola is kinda salty and I hate thinking about the fact that I'm eating mold but it wasn't bad. Read More

It was delicious! I substituted the cheese and added cooked pineapple. I also added uncooked spinach shortly after adding onion and garlic and cooked together. Read More

Tasty. I added a layer of cheddar and that helped the quesadillas retain their shape. I love Gorgonzola - you'd have to love it before you picked this recipe. You can really taste it. Read More
