The Chicken Massacre Has Ended.

For dinner tonight I'm making buffalo chicken quesadillas (recipe courtesy of my friend, Lydia).  One of the ingredients needed for the recipe is a store bought rotisserie chicken shredded.  I absolutely detest working with animal carcasses.  You'd think I'd be over it after cooking all these years.  Maybe I'm still scarred from that chicken butchering I went to as a young child.  Nah . . . 

Don't laugh but I still wear rubber gloves when I prepare my Thanksgiving turkey.  At least when I work with a rotisserie chicken I don't wear gloves but it still grosses me out.  Here is the recipe if you can stomach picking a chicken rotisserie carcass.  :)

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas
1 store bought rotisserie chicken, shredded
1/4 c. buffalo sauce (I prefer Frank's)  <-----go there to read more about my love affair with Frank's
1 1/2 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
12 soft flour tortillas (taco size)
blue Cheese dressing for dipping

In a large bowl combine chicken with sauce and stir until evenly coated.  Add cheese and toss to combine.  Divide mixture on six tortillas which have been placed on a cookie sheet and top each one with a remaining tortilla.  Spray the top tortillas lightly with baking spray.  Place them into a 375 degree oven until they brown and cheese is melted.  Cut into quarters and serve with blue cheese.

I'm with you on the animal carcass thing--I don't like my meat to look, in any way, like the animal it once was. Call me a hypocrite!!
Actually, the very first time I prepared the thanksgiving turkey, I had it in the kitchen sink and I sat it upright right over the drain. Well, some air came up from the drain, and it looked like my headless turkey was breathing! I dropped the thing and ran to the other end of the house! It was at least another year or so before I'd touch a whole turkey or chicken after that!
This recipe looks great. I'll definitely give it a try--thanks!!

Ha, Knit! That sounds EXACTLY like something I'd do--run from a potentially breathing, dead chicken hahaha
