Chicken Quesadillas

I have just fallen in love with Quesadillas..easy to cook and tastes yummy.one can never go wrong with Quesadilla...its so simple and the best part is you can fill it with anything.... vegetarians can try making the vegetarian Corn and black bean Quesadilla I had posted few weeks back. This time I made the quesadillas with creamy chicken. Serve it with guacamole and enjoy this perfect dinner.

CHICKEN QUESADILLAS

Ingredients:
4-6 Tortillas,
1/2 lbs of boneless Chicken,
3-4 tbsp of mayonnaise ,
1/2 cup of finely chopped green onions,
1 jalapeno peppers,
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese,
1 tbsp of lime juice,
1/2 tsp of chilli powder and
salt to taste.

Method:
Wash and cut the Chicken into thin strip. Put the chicken in a bowl and add some salt, chilli powder and lime or lemon juice, brush the chicken with some olive oil. OR one can use the taco seasoning instead of the salt and chilli powder.Mix well and grill in the oven or cook on a griddle/pan until the chicken is cooked. Remove and shred the chicken and keep aside.
In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken ,mayonnaise, finely chopped spring onions and jalpeno peppers. Mix well. Melt 1/4 tsp of butter in a pan, place one tortilla and spread a thin layer of the above creamy chicken, scatter some cheddar cheese all over the chicken and cover this with another tortilla. Brown each side of the tortilla for 1-2 minutes. When both sides are lightly browned, remove from the pan and cut into wedges. Serve with sour cream or with some Guacamole.

Katy ~ said...

You are AWESOME. For the life of me I can't get the ingredients to stay inside the tortilla, they spill all out and are quite disagreeable. Yours look perfect and sound as good as they look. I'm going to have to try this!
