What to eat tonight: Quick and colourful chicken quesadillas

Believe it or not, these chicken quesadillas are super healthy and delicious. Use leftover chicken for a quick and colourful weeknight family feast.

Chicken Quesadillas and Salad
Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 3 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 250g chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 2 wholewheat wraps
  • 3 tsp orange marmalade
  • 4 tbsp kidney beans
  • 2 roasted peppers (from a jar is fine)
  • 2 tbsp chopped or 1 tbsp dried coriander
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of hot sauce (optional)
  • 30g natural yoghurt (3% fat)


For the side salad

  • 50g salad leaves
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced


Method

Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan on a medium to high heat. Add the chicken strips and sauté until cooked through, or use leftover roast chicken. Remove the chicken and set aside.

Heat 1 tsp of oil in the same pan, on a medium heat, and add a wholewheat wrap and heat through.

Spread orange marmalade on the wholewheat wrap in the pan, followed by the chicken, kidney beans, roasted peppers, coriander and pinch of salt to season.

Top with another wholewheat wrap. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottom wrap is golden. To toast the top wrap, place under a grill on medium heat.

Serve with the natural yoghurt and a side salad.
