Whole Wheat Chicken Quesadillas with Fage Yogurt Dip

Chicken quesadillas the perfect bar food or anytime appetizer although seemingly healthy they're really not. Since the final countdown to my wedding has begun just about all my recipes will be figure friendly! On Tuesday I roasted a beautiful free range chicken being left with some extras, I thought what else can I do with this besides boring chicken salad?

On my latest Costco venture I scooped up my favorite whole wheat wraps. Now,  TLC's Extreme Couponing inspired me to by the Sunday paper and clip away! I clipped $1.00 coupon for  Kraft Cheese and low and behold Target was running a sale, so after the sale and my coupon I paid a $1.25 for Kraft's Mexican Mix.Plus I always keep a fresh supply of Fage Greek Yogurt in my fridge, I have so many good uses for it. I pulled the ingredients together and was on my DePalma's delicious and healthy Chicken Quesadilla with Yougrt Dip, we served these all the time at my restaurant The Power Grill. I'm sure you will  love them too!
