5-Minute Chicken Quesadilla

Prep Time2 mins
Cook Time3 mins
Total Time5 mins


  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • 1/3 cup shredded Gruyère cheese, any other cheese works also
  • 3 ounces sliced deli chicken breast, any other deli meat works also
  • 1/4 cup baby spinach, about a pinch of spinach leaves
  • 1/2 medium gala apple
  • salsa for topping, optional


  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. While the skillet is heating, grate the Gruyère until you get about 1/3 cup. Bonus points for you if you already have your cheese shredded.
  • Place the tortilla in the pan. Spread the cheese onto one half of the tortilla. On the other half, layer the deli meat and and then the spinach.
  • While the quesadilla is cooking, slice the apple into thin slices. Place the sliced apples on top of the spinach.
  • When the Gruyère has melted and the tortilla starts to bubble (about 1-2 minutes), fold the cheesy half on top of the other half.
  • Serve on a plate and enjoy!
