Chicken quesadillas ingredients
Ok, so we know that Healthy Quesadilla recipe is nutritious, high in protein and tasty, but you might be surprised. Why do I recommend using “protein” instead of whole eggs for the “tortillas”? The answer is simple; Protein alone is less aromatic, making it a great substitute for a regular flour tortilla. This way, the filling is the star of the show instead of trying the egg yolk in the tortilla. However, if you want to use whole eggs, just give it a try, it just tastes more like eggs!
How to make healthy low carbohydrate quesadillas
After we have rounded up our ingredients, we can start!
Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Add the chicken and cook for about 10-15 minutes until it is no longer pink inside. Set aside to cool.
Place your oven on a grill and place the grill of your oven on the second to the top point. Spray a baking sheet with avocado oil and set aside.
Make the "tortillas"
Spray some avocado oil in a small pan and set the heat to high. Once it's hot, turn the heat back down and pour half a cup of protein into the pan. Let it cook for about 5 minutes until it is firm. Then remove the "tortilla" and put it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the protein until you have 4 tortillas.
In a bowl, crush the chicken breast with 2 forks and add the barbeque sauce. Mix until the chicken is well coated.
Divide the chicken into 2 of the "tortillas" and spread it evenly over the surface. Spread the cheese and coriander evenly over the tortillas. Next, cover with the other 2 tortillas. Spray the tips of the quesadillas with avocado oil spray.
Place the pan with the quesadillas under the grill and let it cook until lightly browned and crispy – give or take for about 15 minutes.
Let cool, cut in half if desired and REMOVE !!
What can I put in my quesadillas?
The Mexican food is so much fun that you can mix it and try new flavor combinations and just have fun with it! The same goes for these quesadillas. Feel free to spice them up by playing around with the filling. A fun idea would be to use mine Mexican mini paprika nachos recipe as an alternative filling for the quesadillas or to spice it up Grilled pineapple salsa with mango and corn on the website! So much tasty!
