Spicy Chicken Quesadillas


6 flour tortillas
1 Tbsp coconut oil 
4 chicken thighs, sliced into thin bite-sized pieces
1/2 an onion, finely chopped
1 red capsicum, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 corn cob, cooked with kernels sliced off
3 fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1 cup grated cheese

To serve:
Fresh rocket
1/2 an avocado
1/4 cup sour cream or Greek yoghurt


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat coconut oil. Cook the chicken until cooked through (white when sliced through the middle). This should take about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. 
  2. Add a little extra coconut oil to the pan and add the onion and cook until soft. Add the capsicum and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, corn, tomatoes, spices and seasonings and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
  3. Mix the cooked chicken through and set aside. 
  4. Add 1 flour tortilla to skillet and top half of the tortilla with a heavy sprinkling of cheese and cooked chicken/vegetable mixture. Fold the other half of the tortilla over and cook, flipping once, until golden, 3 minutes per side. Repeat to make 6 quesadillas.
  5. Serve with fresh rocket, avocado and sour cream or Greek yoghurt.
