What you need for this quesadillas recipe:
2 cups shredded skinless chicken meat

3/4 cup salsa verde
1/2 cup reduced sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
4 burrito-sized tortillas
General directions for this recipe:
Start by preheating toaster oven to about 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
On a work surface, slice green onions into thin strips. Set aside the dark green tips of the onions, about 2 tablespoons, to use as garnish.
Lay the burrito-size flour tortillas on a flat surface then spread even proportions of shredded chicken meat, jalapeno chili, cheese, cilantro, and green onions on one side of each tortilla. Next, fold the other half of the tortilla over. Set aside.
Prepare the oven tray by lining it with a single layer foil. Place the prepared tortillas on the foil-lined tray and set the timer. This recipe requires about 8 to 10 minutes cooking time. Heat up the tortilla until the cooking time finishes or until the tortillas are golden brown or the cheese melted. Remove from oven.
Next, place each quesadilla on a flat surface and cut in half. Place on a plate and serve with salsa verde with sour cream. For a finishing touch for this toaster oven quesadillas recipe, sprinkle green onions.
