Chicken, Spinach, Pesto, & Goat Cheese Quesadillas

Quite the title I know!  This was just a quick easy dinner and spin off the original mexican quesadilla.  They were really good, and you could throw in whatever you have!  The goat cheese was so savory in the quesadilla.  Measurements are rough estimates as I of course didn't measure!

Chicken, Spinach, Pesto, & Goat Cheese Quesadillas
yields 2 quesadillas

4 wheat tortillas
1 chicken breast, poached and shredded
1 1/2 - 2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
2 ounces goat cheese
2 ounces light cream cheese
2 ounces pesto

Spread pesto on two tortillas.  Spread (or crumble) cream cheese and goat cheese over the other two tortillas.  Heat a skillet over medium heat.  Place one of the pesto tortillas with pesto face up.  Sprinkle half of the mozzarella evenly over the whole tortilla.  Spread half of the spinach & chicken.  Place one of the goat cheese tortillas with goat cheese down.  Heat until cheese starts to melt and tortilla starts to brown on the bottom, then flip and heat through other side.  Cook other quesadilla the same way.  Cut each into four slices and serve warm and crispy!
