Ingredients

Instructions

Poach the chicken:

  • Add the chicken broth and the chicken to a heavy bottom pot over medium high heat. Let cook until the cicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F. Remove from the broth with a slotted spoon to a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
  • When the chicken is cooled, shred the chicken in the mixing bowl and add in 1 cup of the cheese and the enchilada sauce. Make sure to mix well!

Make the Keto Quesadillas

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  • Lay one of the tortillas in the skillet and top half with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Layer 1/4th of the chicken mixture on top, followed by 1/4 cup of the cheese. Fold the tortilla in half and cook until the bottom is brown and the cheese starts to melt.
  • Flip the quesadilla and cook for a few minutes more on the other side. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • Continue with the remaining 4 quesadillas.
  • Cut each one in half and serve with sour cream and quacamole.
