Steps to follow to make this recipe:
To prepare these chicken and cheese quesadillas in the oven, put one of the corn tortillas on the baking tray (I recommend covering the tray with aluminium foil or a sheet of silicone for baking) and put a drizzle of sauce. This time I have used a curry and tomato sauce with a spicy tip, but you can put the one you like the most or not at all.
We have in fan six slices of chicken breast covering in circle the corn tortilla. There will probably be a hole in the center of the Mexican quesadilla that is not covered by the chicken slices but nothing happens.
Tip: We can change the slices of chicken breast for turkey breast or ham.
Next, put the slices of cheese on top of the chicken slices. We can use any cheese but if you can advise you to buy cheese that comes in slices (cured or semi-cured) that is very convenient for this recipe and gives it flavor.
Cover the cheese quesadilla with the remaining six slices of chicken.
Put another little bit of sauce on top and sprinkle with a handful of grated cheese and a handful of fried onion.
Cover the chicken and cheese quesadilla with the other tortilla and place in the preheated oven at 180 ºC for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted. We check that the tortilla on the surface does not over-brown.
We take out the chicken and cheese quesadillas in the oven, cut them into portions (for eight portions) and serve! Beware of the cheese that is very melted at first and can burn us!
