Chicken and Roasted Asparagus Quesadilla with a Balsamic Reduction

Speaking of reductions; I am watching Botched right at this moment and this girl needs a buttock implant reduction.  Because the "Doctor" who implanted her with said buttock implants used breast implants...for the buttock implants.  How many times did I just say implant......


I have never made a balsamic reduction before and it's really not rocket science.  Heat some balsamic vinegar on the stove until it bubbles, then turn down the heat to low until it REDUCES and thickens up.  Magic!  Then put it on all of the food everywhere.  Or maybe just your quesadiller.

Quesadilla Prep Work
  • 2 small chicken breasts, seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked, and cubed
  • 5-7 asparagus stalks, roasted at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, then chopped
  • A few handfuls of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar, reduced as per the above
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla 

In a nonstick skillet, add the tortilla and top with the cheese, chicken, asparagus, and a liiiiittle bit more cheese.  Drizzle the reduction over everything to your heart's desire.

Cook in normal quesadilla fashion, folding the tortilla in half once the cheese starts to melt, then flip.

Implant immediately into your face.
