Yes, the last recipe I posted was also “mexican inspired”, and yes so is this one. Sorry but I can’t help it. I guess I’m in a bit of a phase. With that said, you guys should know now that I LOVE quesadillas. It’s not the first thing I would order if I were out dining, but I will take a home made quesadilla any time of day. My midnight snack is usually a quesadilla with just cheese, onion and jalapenos- the BEST!
I tried something a little different with these quesadillas and filled them with the most tender tandoori flavored chicken! I love adding chicken in yogurt because it really makes the chicken taste like its been marinating for over 24 hours, which frankly I don’t have the time for.
I normally would serve these with a cilantro jalapeño sauce but I was in the mood for something a little different yesterday. Lucky for me, I’ve been on a fresh juice kick so I had a LOT of fruit on hand to choose from. I took one look at the pineapple sitting in my fridge and decided to try and make a pineapple salsa! The longer the salsa sat, the juicier and tastier it became! It’s sweetness and brightness was a perfect compliment to the smokiness of the tandoori chicken.
Try it for yourself ? Happy eating!
