Cheesy Grilled Chicken Quesadilla

Tips / Suggestions

  • I love grilled chicken, but also try this with grilled skirt steak. That’s hard to beat as well.
  • I didn’t use any limes, although I suggest cutting one up and squeezing the lime juice over top before folding the tortilla.
  • You can also substitute butter for olive oil when placing the tortilla on the cast iron. This could give a slightly better crust. There’s not too many times where butter didn’t make things better..

Quesadilla stuffed with grilled chicken, salsa, avocado, cilantro, hot sauce, and melted cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 1 tortilla - large

  • 1 1 chicken breast

  • 2 tbsp 2 olive oil

  • 1 tbsp 1 poultry seasoning or favorite BBQ rub

  • 1 cup 1 shredded cheese of choice

  • 1 1 avocado - cut up into slices

  • 2 tbsp 2 salsa

  • 1 tsp 1 hot sauce

  • 1 tbsp 1 cilantro chopped

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 sour cream

Directions

  • Slice the chicken breast in half (lengthwise). Rub 1 tbsp olive all over and coat with the poultry seasoning. Set aside.
  • Heat your grill to 400 degrees F direct. Grill both chicken breast halves until the internal temperature is 165 degrees F. This can take around 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the grill, let rest for 5 minutes, and then cut into slices.
  • Add a cast iron pan to the grill and coat with 1 tbsp olive oil. When hot, place the tortilla on the iron. Then add the chicken (from one of the breast halves) and shredded cheese to one side of the tortilla. After 1-2 minutes, fold the tortilla and flip over. Cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Once the cheese has melted, open up the tortilla and add the salsa, half of the avocado slices, cilantro, and hot sauce. Fold the tortilla back up, flip over, and cook for another minute. Remove from the grill, slice into wedges, and start dipping with the sour cream. You won't regret it.

Old Bay Tequila Shrimp

Tips / Suggestions

  • It’s a good idea to soak the skewers in water for an hour or two if you can. Otherwise, just keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t catch fire during grilling.
  • A half of stick of butter works just as well for the butter mixture. I use a little bit more to dip some grilled bread into…so good.
  • Another option to enhance the dish a little more. Grilled the lime halves first until they’re charred and then squeeze them. It’ll add another layer of flavor.
  • McCormick’s Old Bay is perhaps the most iconic seafood spice, and we’re using plenty here on these shrimp. Mix in a little tequila and you may just find yourself having the best meal of the summer. Take pictures in case you don’t remember.
