Ingredients

  • 2 ready-to-eat cooked chicken breasts, finely diced
  • ½ small red pepper, deseeded and finely diced
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 200g smoked mozzarella, finely diced
  • Few fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
  • 8 soft flour tortillas
  • Olive oil, to grease
  • Watercress and cherry tomatoes on the vine, to serve

Method

  1. Put the chicken, pepper, spring onions, mozzarella and sage into a bowl. Season and mix together.
  2. Lay a tortilla flat. Scatter a quarter of the chicken mixture over it, top with another tortilla and press together. Make 3 more quesadillas in the same way.
  3. Grease 2 large frying pans with a little olive oil and put over a medium heat. Put 1 quesadilla into each pan and cook for 2 minutes, until golden. Invert on to a plate, then slide back into the pan and cook for 2 minutes, until the filling is hot and the cheese just melting. Set aside while you cook the other 2. Cut each quesadilla into 4 and serve with watercress and cherry tomatoes.

  1. Smoked mozzarella has a smoky, almost nutty flavour. If you can’t find it in Italian delis, use regular mozzarella.
