super simple chicken,mushroom and onion quesadillas.

 An easy dinner for those lazy days.  I just pulled out what I thought would be a good combo.  You can add anything else you want.  I kept the flavors simple because I was using the homemade whole wheat tortillas and they we're already super flavorful with oregano and garlic.  I didn't want flavors to try and compete.  If you're not using flavored tortillas then maybe add some garlic or some cayenne powder for an extra kick. 
1 1/2 cups cheese of your choice
2 Tbsp butter
2 cups mushrooms sliced
1 quarter red onion thinly sliced (more to your liking but hubby's not a big fan of onions)
Chicken (I didn't weigh it but I used about 5 tenders)
6 tortillas
recipe yields 3 quesadillas.

 Salt and pepper both sides of chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center.  I used my nuwave and they we're done in about 10 minutes.  You can make them any way you want it..Just like Burger King, have it your way.  When done, dice into small pieces.
While the chicken is cooking add 1 TBSP butter to the pan over medium heat.  Add red onions and saute until opaque, tender and a little browned. about 3 minutes
Remove onions from pan, add another TBSP butter and saute mushrooms about 5 minutes until done.
Remove mushrooms from pan.  
Over low heat spray the same pan with cooking spray.  Place tortilla in same pan, layer with cheese, onions, mushrooms, chicken.  I also put more cheese on top after I took the picture.  Place another tortilla on top and press down with spatula.
let the tortilla get hot and the cheese melt about 1 minute then flip over carefully so the other side can melt and get hot as well. 
Cut into slices and enjoy. 

 Yummm cheeeeeeese!!
Next time I'll add BACON!!!!! but we we're out.

I wasn't hungry, but I am now! I will have to give this a try without the chicken only because I'm a vegetarian. I think you have a future as the next Rachel Ray :)
