Wish I was on the beach in Mexico… Cilantro Lime Chicken Quesadilla

Leave a comment


I’m just finishing up my review of the Iberostar Bavaro resort in Punta Cana, DR, so I thought I would post a recipe in the meantime! As I mentioned in my review of the Azul Fives resort, I LOVED the food in Mexico. I just find that there are flavours in the food there that make it taste fresh! I’ve decided (in a very scientific, research based manner of course) that two of those flavours are cilantro and lime, so I made this super easy quesadilla for those days I’m really missing the beach.


Cilantro Lime Chicken Quesadilla


2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I use a rotisserie chicken from the store to make it quick and easy)
Juice of 1 lime
Handful of cilantro, chopped
Hot Sauce, to taste
Salt, to taste
Shredded cheese (I use the tex mex style, but any will work)
Flour tortillas

Combine shredded chicken, cilantro, lime juice, hot sauce and salt…..and then taste this delicious combination and try not to eat the whole bowl before you make a quesadilla 🙂


Heat a small amount of olive oil in a frying pan, just so the tortilla doesn’t stick

Lay tortilla in pan and sprinkle a layer of cheese, covering the whole tortilla

Add a layer of chicken mixture


Sprinkle additional cheese on top of chicken and place tortilla on top

To flip: place a plate over entitle tortilla and turn frying pan over (so you are then holding a plate with the cooked top if the quesadilla looking at you) the slide it back into the pan to cook bottom


Cook until tortillas are golden and crispy and cheese is melted throughout

Serve with sour cream and enjoy!
