The Plot Chickens: Traditional Grilled Chicken Quesadilla

 Active time: 5 min Cook time: 3-6 min Serves: 1

Want to know what happens in this page-turner? You make a freakin’ delicious quesadilla then you eat it while you feel lucky to be alive during a time of such great food.

What’s not to love about juicy chicken and melty cheese right? But if the poblano is too hot for you, swap it for a bell pepper. We’re not here to judge. We’re here to make your wildest sandwich dreams come true.      



  • 1 (12-inch) flour tortilla
  • ½ cup Mexican Cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup pulled chicken
  • 1/2 of a yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 poblano pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp. butter, optional


    COOK IT.

    • Melt some butter or olive oil over medium heat in a skillet.
    • Add thinly sliced onion and poblano and cook until brown and tender (about 5-7 mins).
    • Take off the heat and set to the side.


    • Warm the pulled chicken in the microwave for 1 minute, or in a small pan on the stovetop over medium heat until warmed through. 
    • Using a sharp knife or scissors, cut a line from the bottom to the center of the tortilla. 

    Now build your quesadilla. We recommend a maximum of 4 ingredients or less for optimal toast through.

    • Add fillings in four sections.
    • Next, it’s time to fold.
    • Starting at the bottom by the slit, fold one section over the other section and continue around until it makes one triangle quartered shape

       TOAST IT.
      • Now put it in the Toastie Press and close and lock the press. Wipe around the outside of the press to clean off any drips with a paper towel. 
      • Place the filled Toastie Press into the right slot of your Revolution Toaster with the handles facing out.

      Now make your next selection based on the model you have:

            Introducing the Revolution Toastie Press

            Because big appliances are a big pain.

            We’re going to assume we don’t need to sell you on the idea of a toastie. Who doesn’t love the melty-deliciousness of a pressed sandwich, right? But big appliances are, well, a big pain. You need to lug them out, they can be hard to clean and they take up valuable counter space. This toastie attachment is our solution: Simple, compact and super easy to use it gives you the sandwiches you love, minus the mess and hassle you don’t.

            • Heats up quickly: Deliver the toastie of your dreams in seconds not minutes. (Learn more about our safe, eco-friendly InstaGLO technology here!)
            • Easy to clean: Wipe down with a sponge or pop it in the dishwasher.
            • Small footprint: Stash it with your coffee, in your bread box or just sit it in the toaster when not in use.

            Faster. Smarter. Tastier.
