Chicken, Butternut Squash and Kale Quesadillas

Chicken, butternut squash and kale quesadillas became one of my favorite dinners last year when I had gestational diabetes. It's delicious, easy to prepare and oh so healthy. Win, win, win! And now I can whip up this dinner for my baby to eat along with us (in puree form for now!) and feel good that he is getting a healthy dinner too...and he loves it!!

Last time I made this, I shared the photo on instagram not even thinking to do a blog post and it has gotten so many likes, I figured I better share it with everyone! So without further ado, here is the healthy, scrumptious recipe!

Chicken, Butternut Squash and Kale Quesadillas


What You'll Need:
Chicken, bite sizes
Butternut squash, bite size cubes
Kale or spinach
Parmesan cheese, shredded
large tortillas (I love whole wheat!)

How you'll do it:
*You can do steps 1 and 2 at the same time in separate pans to save a little time, but who wants to do all those dishes?!
1. Cook the cut up chicken on the stove top in a little bit of olive oil. 
2. Once the chicken is fully cooked, move aside and put in cubed butternut squash, adding oil as needed. 
3. When that is fully cooked, mix chicken back in, add in kale or spinach and Parmesan cheese until kale/spinach has cooked down.
4. Spoon generous amounts onto a quesadilla. Cover with another quesadilla (or you can just stick with the bottom one and serve this as an open face quesadilla) and place under broiler for a few minutes until it crisps up.
5. Enjoy!
