I wanted something “wingy” , is that a word? , for the superbowl, but I obviously didn’t want to make wings – so these were perfect! I made them in the quesadilla maker, cut them in triangles, then put them in a casserole dish to warm them in the oven for the second dinner of the night… halftime!! 🙂

4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
1 celery rib, sliced thin
1/4 cup sour cream
2 scallions, sliced thin
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 1-inch strips
1/3 cup Frank’s hot sauce
4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Combine blue cheese, celery, sour cream, and scallions in a bowl. Melt butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and hot sauce and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer chicken mixture to a bowl. Using 2 forks, shred chicken into bite-size pieces. Wipe out skillet.

Working one at a time, spread one-quarter of the blue cheese mixture over half a tortilla, leaving 1/2-inch border around the edges. Top with one-quarter of chicken mixture and a handful of shredded cheese. Fold tortilla over filling, pressing firmly.

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in now empty skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add two tortillas to the skillet, cooking until brown and crisp on both sides, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to cutting board and repeat with remaining quesadillas. Cut into wedges and serve.
