posted by 4 years ago


4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

2/3 c. frozen limeade concentrate

1 large sweet onion, julienned

1 medium sweet orange pepper, julienned

1 medium sweet yellow pepper, julienned

2 Tbs. vegetable oil

Salt & pepper, as desired

4 (10 inch) gluten free flour tortillas

1 c. shredded Mexican cheese blend

2 Tbs. butter, melted

1 Tbs. lime juice

1 Tbs. fresh cilantro, chopped

Lime wedges, optional


Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag: add limeade concentrate. Seal bag and turn to coat. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for at least 6 hours. In a skillet, sauté onion and peppers in oil until tender; season with salt and pepper if desired, set aside. Prepare grill rack for cooking and heat to medium high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and discard. Grill chicken, covered, 5-8 minutes per side or until an instant read thermometer inserted in thickest part of chicken registers 165°F. Cut chicken into 1/4-inch strips, set aside. On one half of each gluten free tortilla, layer cheese, chicken, peppers and onions and top with more cheese; fold over. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place quesadillas on a baking sheet. Combine melted butter and lime juice; brush tops of tortillas. Bake 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and tops are slightly browned. Cut into wedges, sprinkle with cilantro and serve with lime wedges if desired. (Serves: 4)
