How to make chicken cheese breakfast quesadillas

  • Tortillas. We love to use flour tortillas for our quesadillas, they are great and stay fresh for a long time. If you prefer corn tortillas- go for it.
  • Cheese. I used shredded Mexican blend cheese that i get in bulk from Costco. Cheddar cheese will work as great, or Monterrey Jack
  • Chicken. I used leftover rotisserie chicken here, but you can totally use any other chicken- grilled or even boiled from the soup. Make your own air fryer rotisserie chicken if you want!

When you make a quisadilla in  the air fryer, you need to know that the top tortilla part may blow away and get stuck to the heating element on top.

To prevent that from happening, use a rack to push it down a bit, like it shown in the picture below.

I really loved how our breakfast turned out. Crispy on the outside and so cheesy and gooey on the inside.

This quesadilla will make a great party appetizer too. Cut it up in small pieces and serve with guacamole or sour cream dip! Yum!

I also have lots of Air fryer party recipesfor you too look at.

Grilled cheese in the air fryer is also a really great and easy way to start your day. Kids love it and it takes no time to make.

Frozen air fryer quesadilla

If you are looking to meal prep, you definitely need to precook this quesadilla (don’t cut it yet). This way the cheese will work as a glue that will help for it not to fall apart while reheating. Then place it in the plastic bag and put in the freezer.

When needed, simply put frozen quesadilla in the preheated air fryer and let it cook on 350 degrees for about 3 minutes on each side. Watch it, the reheating time varies depending on the thickness !
