Stovetop, Frying pan, Knife
Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Coat the chicken with taco seasoning on all sides.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken on one side, undisturbed for 7-8 min. Flip the chicken & cook for 3-4 more min, or until fully cooked (internal temperature reaches 165°). Transfer to a plate to cool slightly.
Wash the pepper & remove the seeds. Dice the pepper.
Slice the chicken.
Wipe the first pan clean & heat another drizzle of oil over medium heat. Press a tortilla into the oiled pan. On half of the tortilla, add half the cheese. Layer on sliced chicken & diced peppers. Add the remaining cheese on top.
Fold the empty half of the quesadilla over the fillings. Use a spatula to press it closed for 1 min. Carefully flip the quesadilla over. Cook 3-4 min until the bottom half is crisp & the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat.
Cut the quesadilla in half or thirds. Serve with sour cream, salsa & a squeeze of lime if you have! Enjoy!
