Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. The Chicken Quesadilla Bake is cooked between two full size (12"x17") baking sheets. Use one half of the melted butter to coat the bottom of one baking sheet.

Place a tortilla shell in the same fashion over each short edge of the baking pan. Finally, place one tortilla shell in the center of the baking sheet so that the entire bottom of the baking sheet is covered. Quesadilla Bake
