Chicken and avocado quesadillas

Sharing is caring!

Quick and easy chicken and avocado quesadilla makes a nice easy lunch. Cooked and ready to eat in just 5 minutes, perfect for a busy day and a great way of using up leftover roast chicken.

Fancy one? Just take a soft flour tortilla and scatter over the roast chicken, a handful of grated cheddar and sliced chargrilled pepper (from a jar).

Put another flour tortilla on top and cook in a hot frying pan (no oil) for around five minutes – flipping after a couple of minutes to brown the other side.

Once the chicken is heated through – I prise open the quesadilla and add a layer of mashed avocado, reseal and eat.

I don’t like to cook the avocado as it tastes bitter hot.
