Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Place a filled tortilla on the pan, and cook the tortilla for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is golden. Carefully flip the quesadilla and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until the second side is golden and the cheese is completely melted.
Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Allow each to cool for a few minutes before cutting into 4 to 6 pieces.
Salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

Review Body: So do you cook the chicken prior to filling the tortilla or just write your will and wait for salmonella to hit?

Review Body: This recipe is half assed. Obviously the chicken needs to be cooked, but is it supposed to be shredded or what? Should it be cooked in a slow cooker. Definitely need to rethink the "how to make this recipe" before its posted.
