Balsamic Chicken & Strawberry Quesadilla

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese and Safeway for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Balsamic Chicken Strawberry QuesadillaI am a huge fan of balsamic vinegar.  I pour it over everything.  I have even been know to eat it straight off the spoon.  This strawberry season I have developed a new love for strawberries and balsamic vinegar.  I love to cut up a bowl of fresh strawberries,  add a sprinkle of sugar and then toss with balsamic vinegar.  So good.

So when KRAFT asked me to develop a recipe using their new KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese Stand-Up Pouch and #standupcheese campaign.  I decided to incorporate my love of strawberries and balsamic vinegar too and create a yummy, cheesy quesadilla!

Couldn’t think of anything better to add to strawberries and balsamic vinegar than some Mozzarella cheese goodness.

This quesadilla is a combination of chicken, red onion, cilantro, strawberries, balsamic vinegar and KRAFT Mozzarella cheese.

I’m loving the new KRAFT Stand Up Pouch and how I can stand it straight up and avoid spilling cheese out all over my counter!  I purchased it at my local Safeway.  Be sure and check out Safeway Just For You

Then top it with some KRAFT Mozzarella cheese.

Top it with another flour tortilla.  I like to cook my quesadilla in butter.  Just melt a tablespoon or a little less of butter in your frying pan and cook the quesadilla on both sides until the cheese is melted.

Just slice it up and you are good to go.  The sweetness of the balsamic vinegar and the strawberries with the other ingredients is pretty divine!

    Just made this for lunch & it was delicious! It’s a delightful combo of flavors. Please help me round out my menu with fhis dish for company next week? I’m reluctant to do salads because of the multitude of flavors here. Fruit platter? Or relish plate? Crackers rather than bread? Thanks, & love your recipes!

      So glad you loved it. It think a fruit salad or platter would be perfect. Or a nice green salad. No need for any crackers or bread because of the tortilla. Enjoy!

    Yum yum. I love quesadillas but have always use bolognese stuffing. So this chicken balsamic strawberry would be nice for a change. Thanks!
