    • 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
    • sour cream, to serve



    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.
