Copycat Applebee's Chicken Quesadilla Grande

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

Love these as a start before dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brush one side of each tortilla with shortening.
  2. Place one tortilla, shortening side down on work surface. Spread chipotle sauce evenly on one tortilla.
  3. If chicken was not freshly grilled, then microwave chicken approximately 45 seconds, then distribute evenly on top of sauce on tortilla.
  4. Evenly put Quesa Filling on top of chicken. Then, cover with the other tortilla, shortening side up.
  5. Brown on griddle or in non stick pan evenly on both sides until internal filling is thoroughly heated.
  6. Use shredded lettuce, sour cream, green onion and salsa as accompaniments. I like to add crumbled bacon on top.

Bad recipe! Step 4 says spread queso filling, but it's not in the list of ingredients. Please clarify.

I made this but when I went to the directions in step 4 it says to spread with quesa filling and their isn't ingredients or instructions for the filling. :( I ended up putting lowfat jalapeno jack cheese on it. I also used a whole wheat tortilla and lowfat sour cream. Thank you, Wendy!
