Cilantro Lime Chicken Quesidillas

Quesidillas are always a hit at our place. We made them the other night when Josh’s brother and his friend came over. Josh grilled up some chicken with a cilantro lime marinade. I don’t partake of any meat products, but they all loved it! We also had black beans, pepper jack cheese, cilantro, red onions, tomatoes, avocado, and fresh salsa!! They were down right tasty. I made a salad with green apples, craisins, and feta with a balsamic dressing too. Another easy breezy meal at the Lichtys’!

I am not sure on Josh’s exact marinade recipe, he never measures, but these
are the ingredients he used:

Olive oil
Lime zest and juice
Chopped cilantro

He whisked the ingredients together in a bowl and brushed it on the chicken. Let the breasts sit for 20 minutes or so to soak up all of the goodness. Grill to perfection! Chop and enjoy inside a quesidilla with other tasty toppings! Or go the veggie route like I do:)

Also a big thanks to Nicole at Test Kitchen Recipes for the Kreativ Blogger award. We appreciate you thinking of us!

  5. We love Quesadillas!!! They look so good and full of flavors… Congrats on your Kreativ Blogger Award… you deserve it… 🙂

  6. ha – I would never be able to be a vegetarian because of recipes like this one! Hopefully you at least got one without chicken!

  7. These look delicious. We love quesadillas too, but usually my hubby prefers more bland, basic things. Not so outgoing in taste! I can’t wait to try these.

  8. I’ve been eating quesadillas the last couple of days but they’ve been nowhere near as delicious as yours. Yours are the cadillacs of quesadillas!

  9. What a tasty dinner. I could eat either quesidilla. The chicken marinade is great – I love lime and cilantro together. The veggie quesidilla has all of my favorite things in it.

  10. Yummy…can i come for dinner when i get there? 🙂 you guys rock!!! miss you…i’ll be there over halloween.

  11. quesadillas are so good. whatever that chicken has been marinated or basted with looks awesome. i’m craving some Mexican food right now

  12. These look so fresh and tasty. I have all the ingredients for this and think I’ll be checking this out soon. Starred!

  13. Oh, I wish I could be the type who doesn’t measure (doesn’t help that I bake more than I cook anyway); then I could make delicious, quick meals like you guys do! I should really try this one of these days. You could also just send me your share of the chicken! 😉

  14. maria–these are PERFECTION. frankly, i’d like to take the picture of the wedge and make it my background. 🙂

  15. Congrats on the award!
    The quesadillas look awesome – I like the cilantro and lime marinade, although I’d probably use boneless thigh. Thanks fot the recipe!
