Ingredients for Teriyaki Quesadillas

  • 1 clove – garlic
  • 1/4 cup – soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 tablespoon – water
  • 1 teaspoon – sesame oil
  • 1/8 cup – brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon – cornstarch
  • 2 cup – broccoli, florets
  • 1 – cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound – chicken breast
  • 4 medium – tortilla, whole wheat
  • 1/2 cup – cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions in making Teriyaki Quesadillas recipe

Step 1

Mince garlic and add to a small bowl. Add soy sauce, water, sesame oil, brown sugar (2 tablespoons of honey may be substituted here), and cornstarch; whisk together and set aside.

Step 2

Bring a medium pot of water to boil and add the broccoli. Boil for 5 minutes, then blanch by immediately transferring to an ice bath (a large bowl of water with ice in it to stop the cooking process.) Set aside.

Step 3

Spray a medium, non-stick skillet with cooking spray; add chicken and heat over medium-high. Brown on both sides, cooking until no longer pink in the center; chop or shred as desired.

Step 4

Drain broccoli and add to the skillet with the chicken; turn the heat down to medium-low. Gently pour in the garlic mixture and heat about 5 minutes until thickened. Toss together until everything is coated well and heated through, then remove from heat. (If the mixture seems too thick or sticky, add 1-2 tablespoons of water for a thinner consistency).

Step 5

Heat a separate sauté pan over medium-high heat.

Step 6

Place 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture on one side of a tortilla. Sprinkle cheese on top of the chicken, then fold the tortilla in half to cover the chicken and cheese.

Step 7

Cook quesadilla on both sides until cheese is melted and tortilla is slightly browned. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Step 8

Cut each quesadilla into triangles.
