Do quesadillas count as sandwiches? An interesting and delicious question! It’s a question worth musing over as you munch on some Chicken Bacon Quesadillas for One. Like all great quesadillas, Chicken Bacon Quesadillas for One are cheesy beyond belief, but these are also filled with tender chicken and crispy bacon. Stacked high or slathered with sour cream and guacamole, these are a delicious and quick way to celebrate your evening!


2 slices lean bacon, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
2 (8-inch) flour tortillas
2 tablespoons softened butter,
1 tablespoon pico de gallo
1/4 cup Colby-Monterey jack cheese, shredded
2 cooked chicken breasts, cut into strips
sour cream, optional, for topping
guacamole, optional, for topping
Picante sauce or salsa, optional, for topping


Step 1

In a pan on medium heat on the stove-top, fry the bacon, flipping halfway through, until it starts to turn crisp but not hard and brittle, about 6-10 minutes.

Transfer the bacon from the pan onto a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.

Step 3

Set the bacon aside.

Step 4

Preheat a non-stick pan on the stove-top over medium heat.

Add the Colby-Monterey Jack cheese over the bacon and pico de gallo.

Step 10

Add the cooked chicken on top of the cheese.

Step 11

Place the second flour tortilla on top of fixings, buttered side up.

Step 12

Cook until the inside ingredients are heated through, about 1-2 minutes.

Step 13

Carefully flip the quesadilla onto the other side and finish cooking, about 1-2 minutes. The quesadilla should be heated through but not browned.
