Have you ever made chicken quesadillas? Chances are you probably have; they’re a fun, easy recipe to prepare for yourself. However, if you’re planning on serving quesadillas for your upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations, preparing one after another can quickly become a hugely time consuming task.
Making a big batch of chicken quesadillas doesn’t need to be a difficult process, however. All you really need to do is grab a sheet pan and flip your oven’s “on” switch. The first thing you’ll need to do is to make sure you let the filling cool sufficiently. Remember that it will take longer to make the crispy surface in the oven than if you were using a frying pan. Should you use hot filling, the steam within the quesadilla may become too soggy, preventing it from becoming crispy.
The next step is to spray whatever tray you’re using with oil and then throw it in the oven so it heats up, this will help significantly with making sure that the underside of the quesadilla becomes crispy once you’ve flipped it. Make sure to increase the heat in the oven a few notches, but don’t overdo it or else you risk the edges of the quesadilla becoming a little too brown.
Using these tips, you should be able to make an entire sheet of any quesadilla you like. Simply cook the filling without the cheese and let it cool. Spray a baking tray with cooking spray, preheat it to 430 degrees in the oven while the cooled filling and shredded cheese is being distributed between each tortilla. Fold the tortillas, put them on the hot baking tray, and let them cook for about eight minutes. Flip the tortillas over, place them back in the oven for an additional eight minutes and keep an eye on them once they’re crispy all over.
