Boursin Chicken Quesadillas


I'm not going to lie: I consciously seek out excuses to cook with Boursin cheese. In my mind, it is simply one of the most delicious cheeses -- or foods in general, really -- on the planet. So I have to admit that I'm still patting myself on the back for this recipe: a quesadilla that uses Boursin cheese. These were so delicious that they made Joe curse, as in: "These are so _______ good." 

Boursin seems to fancy everything up, so these quesadillas are both casual and really special at the same time. I added some chopped tomato because I thought it would pair nicely with the garlic and herb flavors of the cheese, and it did. I prefer to use seasoned chicken that I saute and then chop, but you could definitely use a store-bought rotisserie chicken for these to make them come together even more quickly. These are so delicious, and so simple too!

Boursin Chicken Quesadillas

1 cup cooked chopped chicken
8 tablespoons Boursin garlic and herb spreadable cheese, divided
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
8 flour tortillas

Spread 1 tablespoon of Boursin evenly on each flour tortilla. Sprinkle four of the tortillas with chicken and tomtato, then top with another flour tortilla, cheese-side-down. Cook quesadillas on both sides until crispy.
