Ingredients

  • 4 jumbo tortillas
  • 2 Coles RSPCA Approved Australian Chicken Breasts Fillets
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup (40g) desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp (40ml) olive oil
  • 2 cups (220g) grated cheddar
  • 1 mozzarella ball, torn
  • 1/2 bunch spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch coriander, leaves picked

Guacamole

  • 3 avocados, stoned, peeled, roughly mashed
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp finely chopped coriander (leaves and stems)
  • 20g chopped mild chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Tasbasco sauce, to taste
  • Sour cream, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine the chicken and half the oil in a roasting pan. Bake for 20 mins or until the chicken is cooked through. Set aside to cool slightly.

STEP 2 

Meanwhile, to make the guacamole, combine the avocado, onion, chopped coriander, chilli, lime juice, sour cream, cumin, ground coriander, garlic and Tabasco in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

STEP 3 

In a large bowl, place the cooked chicken, coconut, mustard and remaining oil. Use 2 forks to shred the chicken and mix well. Season. Add the spring onion, cheddar and coriander leaves and mix well.

STEP 4 

Lightly grease a large non-stick frying pan. Add 1 tortilla and spread with half the chicken mixture. Top with half the mozzarella and another tortilla. Press down gently. Place over medium-low heat. Cook for 2-3 mins over medium-low heat. Flip quesadilla and cook for a further 2-3 mins or until heated through. The cheese inside should be stringy. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, chicken mixture and mozzarella.

STEP 5

Cut the quesadillas into quarters. Serve with the guacamole and sour cream.
