I like to make this as a quick fix meal when I am too lazy to go through elaborate procedures...:)
Since this is an improvised, home-grown version of the regular recipe, the measures are more approximate than exact - I hope I can do justice to it.
Next time I promise to note exact measurements… Ingredients...
2 cups boiled, shredded chicken breast,
1 cup sliced onions,
1 cup sliced capsicum,
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, (can use less if so desired)
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese,
02 finely chopped green chillies (since I am an Indian, and I like it SPICY)
or you can use red chilli flakes instead,
3-4 tbsp cooking oil,
1/2tsp fresh ground pepper (can skip this if using chilli flakes)
You need to knead ( 'need to knead'--he he) enough dough for 8 tortilla. I use half white flour and half wheat flour...(sorry, better measures next time). Roll out and cook on the griddle like you would cook an Indian chapati, but don't let them cook through- keep them half-done.(They'll cook later).
Heat oil in a pan, and lightly fry onions for a minute or so, add the capsicum and again fry for a couple of minutes. Don't brown them. Add the spices, and the chicken - mixing them all up. Take off the fire. Divide the mixture into 4 parts and keep aside.
Heat a griddle, and place a tortilla on it. Take one part of mixture and spread it over the tortilla. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese, followed by bits of mozzarella. Cover with another tortilla and press down a little.. Cook on slow flame till the cheese starts to melt and tortilla crisps up. Flip over and let other side crisp up too.. Repeat for other three quesadilla
Alternately, you can make eight fold-over ones. In that case, place mixture one just one half of the tortilla and fold the other half over to get a semi- circular one, giving you eight in total. Slice up into quarters.......Ta da...ready to eat
Hopefully this helps and I haven't muddled it up too much for you
