Chicken, lime and cheese mini quesadillas

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 30 mins


  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and thinly sliced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 60ml (¼ cup) fresh coriander
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 120g Cheddar, grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 small tortillas
  • olive/avocado oil, for brushing
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Place the chicken, lime juice, coriander, chilli, spring onions and cheese in a mixing bowl. Season and stir gently to combine. Set aside until needed.


Heat a griddle pan over medium heat.


Divide the chicken mixture between half the tortillas. Top with the remaining tortillas to form a sandwich.


Brush both sides with the oil and fry until crisp, about 2 minutes on each side.


Cut the quesadillas in quarters and serve with the lemon wedges and sour cream.
