Greek Style Chicken Quesadillas

October 17, 2012 by 13 Comments

Are you a huge fan of Greek food!?!  Greek Style Chicken Quesadillas are one of my hubby and I’s favorites.  They’re real fresh, full of flavor, and totally easy to throw together.  I usually put together bean and cheese quesadillas for my sweeties (they’re a little more traditional).

A few years ago I had a surgery and my sweet friends loaded us up with meals.  One of my friends lived an hour away and planned without me knowing to have a nearby friend deliver Zoe’s Mediterranean food to my porch.  That meal lead me into a forever obsession with any recipe with a Mediterranean bend.  Greek Style Chicken Quesadillas totally fits the mold!
