Chicken Quesadillas


  • 3 medium flour tortillas
  • 2 peppers
  • 1 onion
  • 250g chicken breasts
  • Fajita seasoning
  • 3 tbsp Tomato puree
  • 100g grated cheddar
  • Olive oil
  • Sunflour oil spray
  • Creme fraiche/Sour cream


  1. Preheat a large frying pan at maximum heat with a dash of olive oil
  2. Dice the peppers, onion and chicken breasts as small as you can
  3. Once the oil starts smoking, throw in the chicken and vegetables
  4. Stir frequently to prevent anything sticking. Once the meat has started to turn white, add the tomato puree and mix it in well.
  5. Once it all looks cooked, transfer to a bowl.
  6. Add the fajita seasoning and stir well.
  7. Turn the heat down to medium, and spray the frying pan with sunflower oil. It’s hot enough when it sizzles as soon as it hits the pan.
  8. Lay a tortilla on the frying pan, and place some of the chicken mix onto one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle 1/3rd of the cheese over both halves of the tortilla.
  9. When the cheese starts to melt, use a pair of tongs to pull the empty side of the tortilla over to the other side, so you’re left with a folded tortilla. Press down on the top with the spatula.
  10. When you’re ready, use 2 spatulas to transfer the tortilla to a plate. You can cut it into 2 or 3 pieces.
  11. Serve with some creme fraiche.
