Chicken, Brie & Mango Quesadillas with a Cilantro Butter

Who says you can’t have fun with quesadillas and change them up?  If you’re like me and LOVE brie cheese and mangos then you MUST try this!  Just a little something I cooked up to tackle a bunch of cravings at once…no I’m not pregnant, I just love food more than the average human.  

*You can also swap the mangos and cilantro butter for cooked apples in cinnamon and raspberry jam! Mmmm!  Delicious!

I have to admit, I’m impressed I made it look this good. With my low patience level my food usually looks like Piper made it.

Ingredients:

Makes 4 Quesadillas

  • Tortilla Wraps 
  • 2 Ripe Mangos
  • 2 medium Grilled Chicken Breasts
  • 350 grams Brie Cheese
  • 1/4 c. Butter
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped Cilantro
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped Dill (optional)

Melt the butter with the finely chopped cilantro and dill in small saucepan on the stove.  Keep it on the lowest heat setting, stirring occasionally while you chop the chicken and mangos.  Alternatively, you can use the microwave to melt the butter, but letting it simmer on the stove will allow the flavours to blend fully and get happy! Chop the chicken and mangos into smaller chunks so they’re easier to work with.

Slice the brie into thin slices and set aside.  Start warming up a skillet on medium heat when all of your ingredients are ready.  Keep in mind that every stove is different.  I find that I need to cook these in the middle of the low and medium heat setting or the tortilla cooks too fast or burns without the cheese melting.  

With a pastry or sauce brush (or carefully with a spoon) spread a small amount of the cilantro butter mixture into the skillet and give it about 30 seconds to heat up.  

Put a tortilla in the pan and spread a little more of the cilantro butter mixture over the whole thing.  Start layering the brie, mango and chicken (in that order) on half of the tortilla.  Try not to overload it as that will cause issues when you are trying to fold and flip it!  Immediately fold the other half over, covering the ingredients in the fold.  When the bottom is brown enough to your liking, gently flip the quesadilla over to cook the other side.  When both sides are a nice golden brown, put it on a plate or cutting board and cut it into wedges and enjoy!
