Jerk Chicken Quesadillas with Slaw Salad

Aired July 22, 2008

Serves 4 servings
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons rice wine or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons tamari
A dash hot sauce
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons canola oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 seedless cucumber, cut into matchsticks
Remaining 3/4 bag slaw mix from Sweet and Spicy Sesame Noodles with Shredded Jerk Chicken
4 large flour tortillas
1/2 leftover Roasted Vegetable and Pineapple mixture, divided
1/2 Rollover Jerk Chicken, meat shredded and skin removed, divided
2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese, divided

In a large bowl, mix together the lime juice, vinegar, tamari, hot sauce and honey. Stream in the canola oil while whisking and season with salt and pepper to make a vinaigrette. Add the cucumber and the remaining slaw mix and stir to combine. Set aside while you prepare the quesadillas.

Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tortilla to the pan and cook about 1 minute per side, until it starts to blister. Add a quarter of the vegetable and pineapple mixture, a quarter of the shredded chicken and a quarter of the cheese to half of the tortilla and fold the other half up to create a half moon. Cook until cheese is melted, flipping halfway through, and repeat with the remaining tortillas. Cut into wedges and serve with the slaw salad alongside.
