Barbecued Chicken and Avocado Quesadilla

Quesadillas are one of my favourite meals. That cheesy goodness! Yum. I love adding capsicum and coriander, but you can try the recipe below and mix it up as you please. Happy cheesy good times!

You can find more recipes including this one and more in the new cookbook by Merv Hughs. Grab it here.

Barbecued chicken and avocado quesadilla


2 chicken breasts
1 red onion, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, finely sliced 1 avocado, cut into long, thin slices
100 g cheddar cheese
100 g provolone cheese
8 flour tortillas
4 tablespoons barbecue rub {this recipe is easy, otherwise we generally make a mix from what we have in cupboard}


  1. Rub the chicken with combined spices until coated evenly and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Lightly fry the onion and garlic on a oiled barbecue flatplate until golden. Remove and set aside until needed.
  3. Add the lightly oiled chicken fillet and grill for 4–5 minutes per side (depending on thickness of the fillets), or until cooked through.
  4. Remove the chicken from the barbecue, place on a cutting board and cut into 1 cm slices.
  5. Place the chicken, avocado, onion, garlic and cheeses onto the flour tortillas. Cover with a tortilla.
  6. Place on the barbecue flat-plate until lightly toasted on both sides and the cheese is melted. Cut and serve warm.
