Chicken & Scallion Open faced Quesadilla-LOW FAT, LOW CARB!!

By True Foodie

This is one of those "comfort food" type of dishes that won't mess with your waistline!  

INGREDIENTS-recipe for one serving
1 tortilla-LaTortilla Factory (Whole Wheat, High Fiber, low fat, low carb)
1/4 cup-scallions
3 oz chicken breast-no fat, no skin
1/4 cup-Kraft fat-free cheddar cheese  
Seasonings-dash of salt, pepper, red chili pepper flakes.
PRE-HEAT OVEN to 350〫 

NOTES- I baked/braised the chicken breast in the oven with Siracha, lemon juice, water & chicken broth...this just gave the chicken so much flavor. Then I weighed, portioned and bagged the chicken breast in 3 oz. individual portions and stored in the freezer to have handy anytime I felt like chicken.

DIRECTIONS- On a baking dish lined with parchment paper, give the parchment paper a quick spray with Pam Cooking Spray, like 1/2 a second short spray. Place the tortilla on the part you sprayed and add the chicken breast, scallions and cheese. Sprinkle the seasonings to your liking then give it a quick final spray with the Pam Cooking Spray. Place it in the oven and bake for about 4 to 5 minutes, then turn the oven up to 400〫and bake for about 5 minutes more.  Enjoy!
