What to Do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400.
  2. Pat dry the chicken breasts and season both sides with pepper.  The place on an oiled sheet pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165.
  3. While the chicken cooks, heat your cast iron skillet over the stove or fire on the grill.  Drain the can of corn and add a drizzle of oil to the skillet, along with the corn.  Cook until lightly charred, then remove from the skillet and season with parsley, oregano, and garlic salt.
  4. Dice the jalapeño, being careful to remove the seeds, and add to the corn.  Quarter the lime and add 1 wedge of lime juice to the corn salsa.
  5. Add 2 wedges of lime juice, garlic, and 1/2 a packet or 1 tbsp of ranch seasoning to the sour cream and mix until blended.
  6. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the oven and thinly slice.  Cover in the remaining packet of ranch or approx. 1 tbsp of ranch seasoning. Toss, and return to the oven for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Reheat the iron skillet over the fire and add a drizzle of oil.  On a clean surface, prepare the tortillas by adding cheddar cheese to half of the tortilla. Remove chicken from the oven and add to the quesadilla on top of the cheese, then cover with another sprinkle of cheddar.  Close the tortilla in half and place in the skillet.
  8. Cook each quesadilla for approx. 30 seconds to a 1 minute on each side, being sure to remove from the heat when it begins to brown.
  9. Serve sliced into quarters and with a side of the corn salsa and sour cream dip.
