Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp jerk seasoning
  • 4 mangoes , diced (can also use 2.5 cups frozen)
  • 1 large jalapeno , minced
  • 1/4 large red onion , diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro , chopped
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tortillas
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Season chicken breasts with 1 tsp of olive oil and 1 tsp of jerk seasoning each. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then dice and set aside.
  • While chicken is cooking, begin to assemble mango salsa. Toss together the diced mango, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, lemon juice and salt, stirring well. Set aside.
  • Heat a large pan to medium heat, and spray with cooking spray. Place one tortilla on the pan, and spread 1/6 of the shredded cheese, 1/6 of the diced chicken, and 1/6 of the mango salsa over half the tortilla. Fold the other half over and cook for 1-2 minutes, until the bottom is lightly browned. Gently flip, and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas until all are cooked.
  • Slice each quesadilla into  3 or 4 wedges, and serve!
