Chicken Quesadillas

Yesterday I made chicken quesadillas!

I thought of it

I wanted it

so I made it

I love quesadillas, I love chicken and I love cheese and when I want something I have to get it or make it or I go crazy, and I cry, and I don’t wanna cry anymore…

You can make the tortillas from scratch or just buy’ em at carrefour or cityshop…either way your quesadillas are gonna rock!


  • 500 g chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt, canola oil
  • 3 tortillas
  • 200 g Montray Jack Cheese

Take the chicken breasts

place them in a saucepan, add water, salt

and boil for about 1 hour at low heat

Take the chicken out of the pan and let it cool down. Keep the broth

Cut the chicken breast into slices.

Heat oil and chopped onion

cook till soft

Now add the shredded chicken, cumin, pour in some broth (enough to cover the chicken)

Cover with a lid and let simmer for about 30 min.

Take half a quesadilla, spread  some shredded cheese, then some chicken breast and more cheese. Cover with the other half. Place in a warm pan

and grill both sides

Cut your quesadillas and serve with sour cream.
