Chicken Quesadillas

The word quesadilla makes our entire family laugh. This is going to be hard to explain, but I will try. We lived in the south of France from 1992-1996. There is an English radio station called Riviera Radio which caters to the English speaking population at large, but specifically to the British population. On a trip back in 2008, the kids thoroughly enjoyed listening to this radio station that tried to cater to EVERY English speaking need. Every English shop, event etc. was advertised. One of the craziest ads was for a Mexican restaurant...yes, a Mexican restaurant in the south of France. The best part was that the English announcer mispronounced quesadilla. The catch phrase was, "The best quesadillas on the Cote d'Azur" but the guy said, "The best quesadillias on the cote d'Azur, pronouncing the l's and adding an i...I know, it doesn't really work to try to explain it, but I did anyway. Put simply, Mexican Restaurant, advertised and pronounced incorrectly by a British announcer along the Cote d'Azur in the south of France...all kind of out of place.

Anyway, chicken quesadillas are our first dinner on our BRAT week. This is pretty basic, but I grilled chicken breasts and put some cheddar cheese and the cut up chicken on tortillas and put them in the panini maker.  This could be pretty fancy with sour cream, avocado, tomato, cilantro, salsa...perhaps some jalepeno?  Well, not for us this week, but there are some ideas! I served these with the homemade applesauce, see, it's pink!
