Red Peppers (or any color you like)
Spices (Garlic Powder, Salt, Pepper, etc)
Mozzarella Cheese
Flour Tortillas
Chicken Breast, cooked and shredded
(I used one chicken breast for 2 10" quesidillas)

Dice veggies and put in baking dish. Coat with olive oil. Add spices and bake in 350-400F oven for 30ish minutes. The veggies shrink down a lot when roasted, so be sure to keep that in mind. Bake chicken breast and shred. Mix chicken and veggies in dish, add cheese. Put mixture on flour tortillas and brown in fry pan or oven till golden and cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream.

Chicken, any kind, legs, thighs, breasts
Soda Crackers (8-10 for 2 chicken breasts)
Paprika (I use about a tsp for this much)
Chili powder (a few dashes)
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder Salt
Any other spices you might like!

Crush crackers till fine and crumbly. Add spices and mix well (no specific amounts...sorry). Rinse chicken and coat in crumbs. Kind of like "Shake 'n' Bake". Bake in oven. Chicken breasts take about 25 minutes at 400-425. Bone in chicken takes closer to 40-45 minutes.
