Crispy Chicken Cheese Quesadilla
THM:S, low carb
Serves: 1
  • ½ cup chopped cooked chicken or turkey
  • ¼ cup + 2 T shredded cheddar cheese
  • Several dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • Dill weed, cilantro, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, to taste
  • Low carb tortilla
  • Coconut oil for frying (I used refined)
  • Sour cream, sriracha, and/or salsa for serving
  1. Combine the chopped chicken, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for about thirty seconds or until the cheese is slightly melted (this helps "glue" everything together so you don't lose half your filling while frying the quesadilla-good trick). Stir it to combine everything well. Place the filling on one half of the tortilla, then fold the other half over to cover the filling. Fry the quesadilla in coconut oil on both sides until brown and crispy. Yields one serving (but you can easily make a family-size batch).
If you want to get fancy, add some sliced black olives and a tablespoon or two of Rotel-style diced tomatoes. Make sure to drain both of these additions well.
Feel free to multiply everything for a family serve version! Quesadillas are super kid friendly.
