    I made sure to thoroughly season my chicken and mixed all the ingredients besides mozzarella together to better put on the tortillas. I used the mozzarella as the glue to keep the mix in the tortilla. Super delicious (but I definitely used more cheese and pesto than in the ingredients lol.

    It tasted great however there was just so much stuff in it that it became messy for me.

    I would prefer to place my insides on one side of the tortilla and fold it in half. I find the cheese and all the insides stick together better that way.

    No. It looked like a quesadilla but the flavors did not work with the tortilla at all. Did not suit our southwestern palettes in the slightest.

    Good for lunch. The pesto was a nice touch

    Ten stars!!!!! This was absolutely delicious. I felt like i was eating at a fun boutiquey California cuisine restaurant. The only issue is if they sit too long they become soggy so you need to eat them right after they are cooked while the tortillas are still crispy. Loved this recipe!

    Excellent. My husband absolutely raved about it. I made us each one with a single tortilla that I just folded over on itself, which makes the whole issue of flipping much easier. I'll definitely be making these again. I bought a rotisserie chicken and shredded mozza to make these so it was quick and easy. This will be going in the rotation for those days when I really don't feel like cooking.

    I wanted to cook this last night but realized I didn't have all the ingredients. I compromised....instead of tortillas I used wholemeal leb bread. I also had no pesto...I used basil, wholegrain mustard with sour cream. Instead of pan frying I baked them in a baking dish with a weighted dish on top, no turning required. Can I just say yum, yum, yum!!!! My husband also threw in a few Kalamata olives................we were both in heaven. Thankyou. Who said you cant make something without all the ingredients?
