Chicken and Brie Quesadillas with Mango Relish

Every now and then I like to cook with the fancy cheese and I swear it never disappoints!  This recipe will make you feel like a real chef and tastes amazing.  From years of trying new recipes, I learned that I really like mixing sweet and savory flavors together.  This recipe has that taste to me!  

Ingredients:

Mango Relish

  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 cups mango, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Chicken and Brie Quesadillas 

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 4 flour tortilla shells (may substitute for gluten free shells)
  • 3/4 cup mango relish (recipe above)
  • 8 oz brie cheese, paper removed and cut into strips
  • 2 cups fully cooked shredded chicken breast
  • Plain Greek yogurt, chopped cilantro, and chopped green onions for garnishes

Directions:

Mango Relish

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the vinegar and sugars.  Once the mixture is boiling, turn the heat down to a simmer.  
  2. Add the mango, minced garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and garlic powder.  Continue to simmer for about 20 minutes or until it is thick.  Stir occasionally.
  3. If you don’t use all of your relish, feel free to store it in an airtight container inside your refrigerator!

Chicken and Brie Quesadillas

  1. Preheat a griddle pan, or I’ve used a large non-stick skillet.  Add some of the avocado oil over medium heat and let the pan heat up.
  2. Spread the mango relish on one tortilla shell and place, dry side down, on the hot pan.  Top with shredded chicken and a few slices of brie cheese.  Place another tortilla shell on top and press down.  Flip the quesadilla carefully when the bottom is light brown, and cook for 3-4 minutes on the opposite side.
  3. Cut into triangles and garnish with Greek yogurt, chopped cilantro, and chopped green onions.  

You will feel like a real chef after this recipe.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
