what's up chicken?

Ever have one of those days that is so hectic that you forget about supper? I do, all the time. That's where this little trick comes in handy. Any time I forget to take the chicken out of the freezer, I poach them from frozen.

Place chicken in a large pot. Cover with water and set on medium heat. Boil chicken until done to your liking. Remove from heat and shred or chop for any recipe.

I used my poached chicken to make buffalo chicken quesadillas. Delicious. Here's how...

10 ounces cooked chicken.
1/2 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt
2 tbs buffalo sauce
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup green onions, sliced
1 1/3 cup shredded marble jack cheese
4 tortillas

Mix together chicken, yogurt, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese. Fold in the green onions. Place 1/4 of mixture on each of the 4 tortillas. Cover with 1/3 cup of cheese and fold in half. Cook in a hot pan until crispy on the outside and cheese is melted on the inside.

This made 4 good sized portions. I had 1 and JT had 2. I'll probably have the other for lunch :)
