These Italian chicken quesadillas are such a simple, flavorful and wonderful dinner. Cooking them in a waffle iron gives them great texture, too!
Get out a large skillet and heat the reserved sun-dried tomato oil in it over medium high heat. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and onions and let them get fragrant for a couple of minutes. Then add in the ground chicken and let it cook through thoroughly with the vegetables. While it cooks, season the mixture with generous pinches of salt and pepper, followed by the dried parsley and dried basil. When the chicken is done, take the pan off the heat and stir in the spinach so that it wilts in. Then get out a waffle iron and pre-heat it. While it heats up, assemble your first quesadilla.
Take a soft taco shell and scoop a generous helping of the filling in the middle, spreading it out into an even layer. Add a big handful of the cheese on top and make sure it is evenly spread out too. Close it up with another taco shell and then grease the pre-heated waffle maker with cooking spray. Close the quesadilla in the waffle maker to cook for 5 minutes. It should get really golden on the outside and melty in the middle. While it is cooking, assemble the next one so that it is ready. When the first one is done, cut it into quarters and serve it immediately, with warmed up marinara if you wish! Repeat the process with the remaining 5 quesadillas. Enjoy!!
