Sheet Pan Chicken Quesadillas for a Crowd

I love quesadillas in any form. Every time we go to our favorite Mexican restaurant (which is a lot), I order the Chicken Fajita Quesadilla. Every. Single. Time. I just love all that cheese and chicken.

When making them at home, this Sheet Pan Chicken Quesadilla Recipe are the easiest way I’ve found to perfect them. The tortillas come up crispy, the inside comes out melty, and the results are so crave worthy. If you’re making them just for yourself they also make great leftovers. I ate these for days and I wasn’t sad about it at all!

How do you cook shredded chicken for this Chicken Quesadilla Recipe?

You can buy pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and shred, or you can cook the chicken before making these Chicken Quesadillas and shred with two forks. To make shredded chicken, place chicken breasts into a saucepan and pour in enough water to cover. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, and simmer until chicken meat is no longer pink, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken breasts to a bowl, allow to cool, and shred the chicken meat with 2 forks.
