chicken brie apple quesadillas

Ingredients

  • 4 large whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 6 oz (175 g) Canadian Brie cheese thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (500 mL) shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 sweet pepper (red, yellow or orange) sliced into thin strips
  • 1 apple quartered and thinly sliced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

Lay tortillas on a work surface. Place half of the Canadian Brie cheese on half of each tortilla. Top with shredded cooked chicken, pepper strips, apple slices and remaining cheese. Fold uncovered half over filling and press gently to seal. Place on a large baking sheet.

Bake for 10 min or until cheese has melted and tortillas are crisp and golden, turning over halfway. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges.

Tips

Tip for Kids: Place skinned chicken pieces in a bowl and the kids can shred the meat using two forks or their fingers. Kids can also layer all of the prepared toppings.

Cooking Tips: Place the Canadian Brie cheese in the freezer for up to 10 min to firm up; this will make it easier to slice.

Cook quesadillas on a grill pan over medium-high heat, for 2 to 3 min per side or until cheese has melted and tortillas are crisp and golden.

For the Adventurous: For a change try Canadian Camembert or Gouda. Or try Canadian smoked Provolone cheese and substitute the apple with an Italian pear.
