chickques

Quesadillas come in many variations usually filled with cheese and served with salsa or guacamole but here is my take on them to make them even more filling.

8 tortillas

2tbsp fajita paste

3oz mushrooms, thinly chopped

1 red pepper, thinly sliced

1 onion, sliced (you can leave this out)

4oz grated cheese of your choice

4tbsp vegetable oil

2 chicken breast

First off place the chicken in the oven to cook for 25-30 minutes on 200c (gas 6).

While these are cooking add the oil to a frying pan over a medium heat along with the pepper, onion and mushrooms. Fry for 6-8 minutes until they have really broken down and are really soft. When the chicken has cooked shred it up then add it to the frying pan along with the fajita paste. Give everything a good mix and stir fry for 8-10 minutes over a medium to high heat. When this is done set aside. Now place a tortilla in a different frying pan over a medium heat after a few seconds flip the tortilla then add some of the chicken mix to cover one side of the tortilla sprinkle a little cheese on top then fold over the other side to make a half moon shape and press it down a little. Keep on the heat and cook for 1-2 minutes then transfer to a plate. Repeat with the rest until you have non left.

*I made my own fajita paste which is easy but to make it even easier and cheaper you can use the shop bought*
