How to Make a Grilled Chicken Quesadillas: Panini Recipe

Flour tortillas are my favorite because of the variety of  recipes I can prepare. I can use it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.The recipes are boundless for all diets. The recipe that I choose to prepare today is suitable for most diets. I turned on my"Chef Thinking Cap" and came up with the following delicious recipe , which I will be serving it for brunch.

You will need the following ingredients:

1 -1 1/2 cup of grilled chicken breast cubes
1/2 cup of fresh finely chopped spinach
Grated cheese of choice
1/3 Piece of finely chopped red bell pepper
1/3 Piece of finely  chopped green bell pepper
1 can of mixed corn with bell peppers
Cooking spray of your choice
Garlic Salt
Seasoning salt
Green seasoning

Cut one chicken breast into small cubes
Presoak them in a bowl of water and  vinegar for a few minutes or until it is defrosted
Rinse under cool water
Add all dry seasoning and salt to taste
Use a spatula or your clean hands to massage the seasonings into the chicken
This will allow the pieces of chicken to absorb all those flavors.
Brings the can of mixed corn to a boil on low to medium heat.
 Preheat 1 1/2 teaspoon of olive or vegetable oil on high  in a stove top skillet
P.s** you can use a frying pan as a substitute if you do not have a stove top skillet.**
Place the pieces of chicken in the skillet
Turn down the heat to medium
Remove the corn from the heat once it starts to simmer and juices are slightly evaporated or reduced.
Flip the chicken pieces repeatedly to prevent them from burning or sticking to pan
Grill the chicken until they are fully cooked and brown with visible grill markings.
Place them in a bowl

Cooking the Grill Chicken Quesadilla
Preheat the Panini electric Grill on high
Place a flour tortilla in a place
Add a small amount of grill chicken to one side of the tortilla
Cover with chopped spinach
Add 1-1/2 tbsp of mixed corn 
Sprinkle some grated cheese
Lightly Spray a small amount of cooking oil spray
Onto both plates of the grill
This will prevent the quesadillas from sticking to the grill
Fold the tortilla in half to cover the ingredients
Place it on one side of the grill
Then close the grill by bringing down the level 
Apply pressure to  the handle to seal the Quesadilla
Allow it to cook until both sides of the tortilla 
have a slight brown tint to it  and grill markings.
Repeat the same step with the other tortillas
