Easy Chicken Quesadillas
This is one of my personal favorites for 2 reasons- it can be prepared in advanced, and it is so simple to make! Whether it is for guest entertaining, dinner, or picnic, it can be done in no time. Need more excuses to make this? The filling is so versatile you can make it with any kind of meat + cheese!
2 packet of Chicken Breast Skinless Medium Hand Diced 500g
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of diced tomato
2 tsp Dried herbs (or use Spanish spice mix)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Oil- to stir fry
Stir fry the dried herbs, garlic and capsicum until fragrant, then add in the chicken, stir until the chicken pieces turn white.
Pour the can of tomato in, stir and simmer for 20 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally to avoid burnt at the bottom. Add the salt and pepper.
When the chicken mixture is done, let it cool down completely.
Place a tortilla on a clean surface, then scoop the chicken mixture to cover the tortilla, and sprinkle the grated cheese generously on top of the meat. Carefully fold the tortilla in half, and press gently to firm it.
In a shallow frying pan, heat a tsp of oil and place the quesadilla on the top, turn the side about 2-3 minutes or until the tortilla skin turns brown and cheese melts.
Slice the quesadilla into 3-4 triangular pieces, and enjoy it hot with some salad, guacamole and salsa.
The flavor of the mixture really is up to the imagination! I also use curry paste to make this recipe or when I have curry leftover! Still yummy as!
Turn this recipe into a burrito by adding rice and black bean to the tortilla!
Try it now, and everyone on the dining table will love it!
