i just made another batch of chicken quesadillas...yum yum yum...i'm in the mood to write a simple quesadillas recipe so, here goes...wait...before i proceed, remember this is a very simple recipe and there are thousands of variations of quesadillas so, u can always make ur own version :)

chicken quesadillas (serving:2)

  • wheat/flour tortilla - 6 (i used store bought tortillas, too lazy to make my own :P)
  • boneless chicken breast - 400-500 g
  • onion - 1-2 (depends on how much onion you want)
  • cheddar cheese - 200 g (grated)
  • vegetable/olive oil - 2 tablespoons
  • cajun spice
  • barbeque sauce
  • salt to taste
how to make the filling:
  1. clean boneless chicken breast and dry it with paper towel. then cover the chicken breast under a saran wrap or wax paper and pound it until it's reasonably and uniformly thin. this is so that the chicken is cooked well when grilled.
  2. season chicken breast with Cajun spice and salt. any spices can be used and since i really love Cajun spice, it's my poison of choice :)
  3. oil the grilling pan very lightly so that the chicken does not stick to the pan. grill chicken until well-cooked. when chicken is cooked, spread a layer of barbeque sauce on both surfaces of chicken and grill for about 10 seconds on both sides. remove chicken and cut it to have medium sized chicken strips.
  4. chop the onion crosswise so that u will have semi-circular onion sections. add 1 tablespoon of oil into a pan and sauté onion in low heat until it's light brown (really soft and sweet but not burned). remove the onion for quesadillas assembly later.
how to assemble quesadillas:
  1. on one tortilla, add a layer of onion and chicken strips. sprinkle a bit of barbeque sauce on the filling and add grated cheese until the whole tortilla is covered. add another tortilla on the filling.
  2. grill the assembled quesadillas until cheese is melted.
  3. cut quesadillas in 4 sections.
  4. buen apetito!
