How to Make Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadillas Like Chili’s

  1. Marinate the Chicken:
    • In a bowl, mix the olive oil, ranch seasoning, salt, and pepper.
    • Coat the chicken breasts with the marinade and let them marinate for at least 30 minutes (or longer for more flavor).
  2. Cook the Chicken:
    • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a bit of olive oil.
    • Cook the marinated chicken breasts for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until fully cooked.
    • Once cooked, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.
  3. Assemble the Quesadillas:
    • Lay out the flour tortillas on a clean surface.
    • On half of each tortilla, layer a portion of the shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses.
    • Add sliced chicken and bacon on top of the cheese.
  4. Add the Ranch Dressing:
    • Drizzle a generous amount of ranch dressing over the chicken and bacon.
  5. Seal and Cook:
    • Fold the tortillas in half to cover the filling.
    • Heat a clean skillet or griddle over medium heat.
    • Place a folded quesadilla on the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese is melted and gooey.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and let it cool slightly before cutting it into wedges.
    • Serve with extra ranch dressing on the side for dipping.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadillas Cooking Tips

  • Ranch Seasoning Mix: If you prefer making your own ranch seasoning mix, combine dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, dried chives, salt, and pepper to taste. Here’s my recipe for ranch seasoning mix.
  • Cheese Variation: Feel free to experiment with different cheese combinations, such as pepper jack for an added kick or mozzarella for extra meltiness.
  • Tortilla Choices: While we’ve used large flour tortillas, you can also opt for whole wheat or spinach tortillas for a healthier twist.
