When you need to get dinner on the table for your family, but you've also got a bunch of other stuff to do (like, say, wrap all those holiday gifts), chicken quesadillas come to the rescue. But not just any quesadillas — these come with a smart, mostly hands-off way to make them happen on busy weeknights.
Instead of standing at the stovetop, cooking each individual quesadilla in a pan, this method has you cook them in the oven all at once. The author offers three key tips for ensuring oven-baked quesadilla success: heating the baking sheet in the oven while you assemble the quesadillas, letting the filling cool before assembling the quesadillas, and setting the oven temperature high.
After about 16 minutes in the oven (flipping the quesadillas halfway through the baking time), you'll have crispy tortillas on the outside, and warm, melty cheese and chicken on the inside.
