Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadillas Recipe:


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • Butter, for cooking
  • Flour tortillas
  • Ranch dressing
  • Cooked bacon, crumbled
  • Shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a Mexican blend)


1. Prepare the Chicken:

  • Season the chicken breasts with the ranch seasoning mix, garlic powder, and black pepper, ensuring they are well-coated.

2. Cook the Chicken:

  • In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Cook the seasoned chicken breasts until fully cooked, about 6-8 minutes per side. Once cooked, let them rest for a few minutes before cutting into bite-sized pieces.

3. Prepare Quesadilla Filling:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked and diced chicken with crumbled bacon.

4. Heat Skillet:

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add butter and let it melt, ensuring the pan is evenly coated.

5. Assemble Quesadillas:

  • Place a flour tortilla in the skillet. On one half of the tortilla, spread a layer of ranch dressing. Add a portion of the chicken and bacon mixture, and top with shredded cheese.

6. Fold and Flip:

  • Carefully fold the empty side of the tortilla over the filling, creating a half-moon shape. Press down with a spatula and cook until the bottom is golden brown.

7. Flip Again:

  • Carefully flip the quesadilla to brown the other side. Ensure the cheese is melted and the tortilla is golden and crispy.

8. Repeat:

  • Repeat the process for the remaining tortillas and filling.

9. Slice and Serve:

  • Once both sides are golden and the cheese is melted, remove the quesadilla from the skillet. Let it cool for a moment before slicing into wedges.

10. Optional Garnish: – Garnish with chopped green onions, cilantro, or a dollop of sour cream if desired.

11. Enjoy: – Serve the Bacon Ranch Chicken Quesadillas hot and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors!


  • You can customize the quesadillas by adding ingredients like sautéed onions, bell peppers, or sliced jalapeños for extra flavor.
