  • 100 g Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 12 - Cherry Tomatoes quartered
  • 1 fillets Chicken Breast butterflied
  • 1 - Lime zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 pinch Pepper
  • 1 - Red Onion finely diced
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 4 - Soft Flour Tortillas
  • 3 - Spring Onions roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Chilli Flakes
  • 4 tbsp SuperValu Fresh Basil chopped
  • 1 - SuperValu Fresh Green Chilli deseeded and finely diced
  • 100 g SuperValu Goats Cheese crumbled
  • 1 handfull SuperValu Mixed Baby Salad Leaves to serve
  • 3 - SuperValu Nectarine stoned and quartered
  • 4 tbsp SuperValu Sour Cream
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Sweet Chilli Jam


  1. Preheat the barbecue to a medium heat.
  2. Combine the cheeses, tomatoes, nectarines, spring onions, red onion, chilli and basil in a bowl and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Drizzle the olive oil on the butterflied chicken fillets, then season with the chilli flakes and some salt and pepper.
  4. Place the chicken on the barbecue, spread out so that both sides are opened out on the grill like a book, and grill for 5 minutes on each side, until completely cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and drizzle over the lime zest and juice, then slice into strips.
  5. Place two tortillas on a work surface and spread some sour cream and chilli jam on each one. Divide the cheese mixture between the tortilla bases, then add the cooked chicken. Place another tortilla on top of the mixture to make a sort of sandwich.
  6. Gently transfer the quesadillas onto a baking tray, then place the tray on the barbecue over an indirect heat. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
  7. Lift the quesadillas back onto a cutting board. Cut each quesadilla into quarters and serve immediately with salad leaves on the side.

Top Tip: If the barbecue ridges scare you or seem too risky, place the quesadillas on a baking tray and put that on the barbecue instead.
