Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie

THANKS reader Lynn W from Georgia for sharing this YUMMY recipe with us.  Lynn's recipe got 3/3 thumbs up in her house!  Can't wait to try it out!  Thanks again Lynn!!!


1 (10 inch) flour tortilla (burrito size)
1 deli chicken, skin discarded, meat shredded into bite sized pieces (about 3 cups)
1/2 cup of finely chopped italian parsley or cilantro (if you like cilantro)
1/3 cup of chopped green chilis (or pickled jalapenos if you like spicy)
2 cups of shedded mexican or cheddar cheese)
2 large eggs
1 cup of milk
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie plate. Press tortilla into the prepared pie plate. Toss chicken, chilis, parsely, 1 cup of cheese, 1/2 t. salt and 1/2 t. pepper in a large bowl until combined. Spread filling over tortilla.
2. Whisk eggs, milk, flour, baking powder in bowl until smooth. Slowly pour over filling (I didn't use all this liquid because it was going to overflow. I might use a little less milk next time.) Then sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese. Bake until surface is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.

Lynn's notes: I like this recipe because the flour tortilla works so well as a crust! I can see changing up the ingredients to suit my mood.
