20110129 Chicken Quesadilla's
(SOURCE: Koken & Genieten - Quesadilla's met kip)
I didn't cook much last week as I came home after 8pm almost every evening. So I wanted to cook something special for this weekend, and saw some recipes for Mexican dishes in the latest Koken & Genieten magazine. Perfect! What is a Mexican evening without a bottle of Desperados?
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 courgette, finely cubed
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp chilli powder
350g chicken, cut into small cubes
150g grated cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1 tbsp butter, melted
1. Heat oven to 175 degree C. Heat oil in a pan, and brown the chicken for about 4 minutes. Add the vegetables, onion, and garlic, and fry for another 3 minutes. Season with oregano, and salt and pepper. Remove from heat and mix in half the cheese.
2. Cover a baking tray with baking paper. Fill each tortilla with the chicken/vegetable mix, and lay the tortilla's on the baking paper. Brush each tortilla with the melted butter, then top them with the remaining cheese.
3. Cook in the oven for about 10 minutes, then under a hot grill for about 5 minutes to brown the top.
