Margarita Chicken Quesadillas
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + marinating Bake: 10 min.
These were very easy and so delicious! Mild enough for the kids but flavorful enough for adults! Great weeknight meal!
My family is a big fan of Mexican food and these were a huge hit. I really loved the lime flavor in the chicken.
Delicious! My guests rave about these whenever I serve them and there are seldom any leftovers! I have never encountered any messiness from broiling the chicken like other reviewers but you certainly have to make sure you drain the marinade thoroughly prior to sticking the chicken under the broiler. I like my quesadillas on the crispy side, so after baking them I carefully broil them for a few minutes until they're browned. Wow, these are so good. Leftovers reheat well, too
This is a family favorite that I make frequently. I agree with justmbeth about the number of servings. We get 4 main dish servings from the recipe. I broil the chicken on a foil-covered pan because doing them on the stovetop grill or charcoal grill left a huge mess of burned limeade from when the sugar in it carmelized. The limeade does add a wonderful flavor to the meat, though.
Simple and very flavorful. Just need to remember to marinate ahead. I typically use Reynold's release on my baking sheets but I did not have any residual dripping/scorching from the lime/butter mixture that others commented on. Serving size says 16, but I would debate that. Probably more like 4, if prepared as a meal and not as a appetizer, and 8, if an appetizer.
This was amazing. We really enjoyed it. We grilled the chicken on a charcoal grill. Because of the added smokiness, we all agreed bacon and gouda cheese might be nice additions next time, but this was great as is.
This was really good. I wish I'd read blue_eyes998 review before I made this though, as the lime juice really did get all over my pan. (It was my first time broiling something, and my chicken was just a little dry, but that was my fault.) I really liked the lime-butter combo too. I look forward to making this again, after I get a dozen or so miles in on my treadmill. : )
This is really fantastic! It's become a favorite. I use a quesadilla maker, so that makes the wedges into sealed pockets for me. If you are going to broil the chicken, make sure you have aluminum foil on the bottom and up the sides of the pan, because that sugary limeade concentrate will drip and burn... and by the time your chicken is cooked you may find you've absolutely ruined a nonstick baking sheet. (I speak from experience.)
It was a very good chicken quesadilla, the lime flavor really came through in the chicken.
