Chicken Quesadilla

I had a chance to taste burrito from chipotle  and ever since am hooked up on Mexican dishes. Might be since their flavour is close to Indian flavour. When we were in Chicago we had chipotle across the street and i wouldnt miss a single chance to get their burritos. I wanted to try making burritos long back, but i was little reluctant. The other day i found this recipe to make quesadilla by chef Jason Hill in food tv,until then i dint know making quesadilla was such a easy thing. This might not be authentic mexican quesadilla but it was worth the try. I made slight changes to the recipe. So here goes the recipe:-)

Tortilla - 1 (store bought)
Cream cheese- 1 tbsp
Cheese - pepper jack (or)cheddar
Green onion- 1 chopped (fine)
Cilantro - handful (finely chopped)
Picked Jalapenos - 2 tsp
Taco Seasoning - 1 tsp
Chicken breast - 1

1.Marinate the chicken with little salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice for 15 min.
2. Boil or cook the chicken.Cool it and shred into bite size pieces using a fork.
3.Add Taco seasoning and little bit of pepper and salt to the chicken and mix well with hands.
4.Add green onion and cilantro to the cream cheese and mix it well.
5.Apply the cream cheese on one side of the tortilla. Sprinkle some cheese on one half of the tortilla(i used mix of pepper jack & cheddar).
6.Place the chicken pieces and pickled jalapenos over the cheese and again over the chicken sprinkle some more cheese.
7.Fold the other half of the tortilla over and place it on a hot tava sprayed with oil.
8.Cook for 2 min and turn over the other side and cook.

Remove it from the tava and enjoy with guacamole and salsa
