  2. Fold the soft-cheese-spread side of the wrap over to close the quesadilla. Cook for 3-4 mins until the cheese has melted and the top of the quesadilla is warm, so you know the chicken is heated through. Slice and serve.

Was really looking forward to this. But the only way I can describe it is dry and was very easy to make but I wouldn't make it again

Delicious, quick and easy. With the added bonus that the kids ate it too!

This is so good but I packed out with a lot more fillings including some red peppers, tomatoes and spinach. Also seasoned the chicken with some of the classic all purpose seasoning and skipped out the breadcrumbs as didn't feel it was necessary!
