Day 9: Spicy chicken Quesadillas


This is quite easy to make and is a taste sensation!  These bad boys will be cooked again and again!

The main ingredients

  • 1 Chicken breast fillet, cut into thin strips
  • 2 Spring onions, diced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • Oil
  • A few Jalapeño peppers
  • Multigrain flour tortillas
  • Cheese (Colby or any mild easy-melt cheese), grated
  • 1 Avocado and sour cream to serve

Ingredients for the spice mix

  • ½ tbsp Flour
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tsp Sweet Paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Oregano

Mix all the spices and flour in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

Pour a little oil into a frying pan and add the chicken. Stir in the spices ensuring all the chicken is covered.   Cook on a medium heat until cooked, adding a little more oil if needed.


Meanwhile, add a little oil to a frying pan and add the garlic, spring onions and Jalapeños.  Fry until the spring onions have softened.

Place a tortilla flat onto a plate.  On one half of the tortilla only add the chicken, then the veggies, then top with the cheese.


Fold the tortilla in half.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add the Quesadillas to the pan.  Cook on each side for a few minutes until the tortillas begin to crisp and colour slightly.  You can flip these over a couple of times if needed.

Remove from the pan, serve with sliced avocado and sour cream.
