Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

If you want some seriously happy people around you.. make them these quesadillas!
These are quick and easy to make, fun to eat, filled with fajita goodness and perfect for a week night meal. 



If you are craving for some Tex-Mex flavors and looking for a recipe that is not very complicated, Chicken Fajita Quesadillas perfectly fit the bill.


You can serve them with a dollop of sour cream or enjoy them dipped in salsa. But if you ask me, I don't need any thing else with these babies. They are too good on their own.

Ingredients:
  1. Chicken cubes (Boneless /Skinless - 1/2 kg)
  2. Garlic (4 cloves- minced)
  3. Lemon Juice (2 tbsp)
  4. Salt (1/4 tsp)
  5. Onion (sliced lengthwise -1)
  6. Tomato (seeded sliced lengthwise -2)
  7. Bell pepper  (sliced lengthwise -1)
  8. Tomato ketchup (1/4 cup)
  9. Hot Sauce (3 tbsp)
  10. Cooking Oil (2 tbsp)
  11. Butter (melted - 3 tbsp)
  12. Cream Cheese (1/2 cup)
  13. Tortillas (6-8)
Method:
  • Marinate chicken cubes with lemon and salt. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • In a pan, heat oil and saute minced garlic. 
  • When the garlic starts to brown, add marinated chicken and cook on high flame  while stirring. You don't want the chicken to get burned. 
  • When  all water dries and chicken starts browning, add onions, bell peppers and tomatoes and cook on high flame for another 30 seconds while stirring continuously.
  • Now, turn down the heat to low, add ketchup and hot sauce.
  • Mix well until everything in the pan is well coated with ketchup. Switch off stove.
  • Spread cream cheese on the tortillas and spread chicken fajita on half of the tortilla.
  • Fold the other half on top (it should look like a semi-circle).
  • Heat an empty frying pan, lightly brush the top of folded tortilla with some oil or butter and place in the frying pan, butter side down. 
  • While the quesadilla is toasting from one side, brush the other side too and flip.
  • Once both sides are done, dish out, cut in 3 equal parts and serve immediately.
