Instructions

BBQ Chicken

  • Preheat your oven to 200C/ 180C Fan.
  • Place your chicken into an oven safe dish. Place all your ingredients on top of your chicken except for the BBQ sauce.
  • Cover your dish and cook for 25-30 minutes until cooked through.
  • Leave to cool for about 10 minutes then using two forks, pull the chicken apart.
  • Mix in your BBQ sauce. Set aside.

Guacamole

  • Remove the skin and stone from your avocados and place in a bowl.
  • Smash the avocados then add in your lime juice and mix through.
  • Dice your onion very small then add to your bowl.
  • Chop your coriander then add to your bowl.
  • Remove the insides of your tomato by quartering it then slicing the centre out. Dice your tomato the same size as your onion.
  • Season your guacamole with salt and chilli then cover and place in the fridge till serving.

Salsa

  • Remove the insides of your tomato by quartering it then slicing the centre out. Dice your tomato very small then add it to a clean bowl.
  • Dice your onion the same size as your tomato then add it to your bowl.
  • Chop your coriander then add it to your bowl.
  • Add in your lime juice and olive oil then season with salt, pepper and chilli to taste. Cover and set aside till serving.

Quesadilla cooking

  • Line up 4 tortilla wraps on your counter, on one side/half of each wrap, divide the BBQ chicken between the wraps.
  • On top of your chicken you can add any other filling you like, I added red onion and sweetcorn.
  • On top of this you add your grated cheddar, use how much you like!
  • Fold the empty side of the wrap on top of the filling side so you are left with a semi circle.
  • Place a pan on a medium heat.
  • Fry your filled tortilla on each side till nice and golden and your filling is all melty and warm. Repeat with your other wraps. If you want to keep all your quesadillas warm just place them in the oven a very low setting after frying.
  • Cut each wrap into 3 when cooked and serve with your sour cream, guacamole, salsa and lime wedges.
  • Enjoy!!
