Prep time


Cooking time




  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced

  • 1 cup mixed vegetables (such as bell peppers, onions, corn, and spinach), chopped

  • 1 cup shredded cheese (such as cheddar or Mexican blend)

  • 4 large flour tortillas

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Optional toppings: salsa, sour cream, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, or cilantro


  • Prepare Chicken and Vegetables: If not already cooked, cook the chicken until fully done and shred or dice it. Chop the mixed vegetables into small pieces. You can use a variety of vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, corn, and spinach, depending on your preference.
  • Assemble Quesadillas: Lay out one flour tortilla on a clean work surface. Sprinkle a handful of shredded cheese evenly over one-half of the tortilla. Add a layer of cooked chicken and a generous portion of the mixed vegetables on top of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top to help hold everything together.
  • Fold and Cook: Fold the empty half of the tortilla over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Press down gently to seal the edges. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling ingredients.
  • Cook Quesadillas: Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush the surface with olive oil or melted butter. Place the assembled quesadillas in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy and the cheese is melted.
  • Serve: Once the quesadillas are cooked through and golden brown on both sides, remove them from the skillet and let them cool for a minute or two. Use a sharp knife to cut each quesadilla into wedges.
  • Garnish and Enjoy: Serve the Kid Friendly Veggie Packed Chicken Quesadillas hot with your favourite toppings such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole, chopped tomatoes, or cilantro. These quesadillas are not only delicious but also packed with nutritious ingredients that kids will love!
