Butternut Squash Quesadillas
Nonstick cooking spray
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 pound boneless chicken breast, rinsed and dried
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. chili powder, or to taste
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/2 cup butternut squash puree
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
4 (8-inch) whole-wheat or ezekiel tortillas
1/2 cup bottled salsa
Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil. Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, and chili powder, add it to the pan, and cook until no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side for cutlets. For chicken breast, cook 5 minutes per side, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 9 to 10 minutes longer. Cut the chicken into thin slices, or puree it, if necessary.
In a bowl, stir together the butternut squash puree sour cream and the cheese.
Spread the bean mixture over two of the tortillas, then arrange the chicken slices or spread the pureed chicken on top. Spread the cheese mixture over the other two tortillas and press one of each together to form sandwiches. Place on the baking sheet and bake until the tortillas are crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa.
