Chicken, Spinach, and Ricotta Quesadilla

This is SO yummy! It tastes like something you would get in a cute and very chic little cafe or bistro!

You will need:
(I'm just going to list ingredients because the measurements depend on your taste and how many quesadillas you are making.)

Chicken (I always use a rotisserie chicken.)
Spinach wraps
Cheese (I used Mexican blend, mozzarella would be good, or whatever cheese you like best.)
Ricotta cheese (I used a little less than half a cup to make two big quesadillas.)
Fresh Spinach
Diced Onions
Olive Oil (Just a drizzle for the pan)

Prepare chicken (cook or shred in my case. Easy!)
Drizzle a little olive oil in a skillet and turn on medium-high. Put onions in and stir for about 2-3 minutes.
Add spinach and cook until wilted (About 1 minute). Place spinach and onion mixture on paper towel lined plate to drain.

Mix cheeses and chicken in bowl.
Spread chicken and cheese mixture on half of the spinach wrap. Make sure not to get too close to the side, so it doesn't ooze out while you are cooking it. Top cheese mixture with onions and spinach. Fold in half and cook in skillet on medium.
And now eat it! :) It is very yummy!

I've had this recipe bookmarked for a while now, and finally made it tonight. Quick, great for a night after work, and tasty too! Next time I'm going to add mushrooms and see how that tastes. Thanks for the great recipe.
