Peri Peri Chicken Quesadilla Pizza
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 chicken breast (For VEGETARIAN option, see below)
  • 4-6 tbsp Peri Peri sauce ( I use THIS ONE ) + extra
  • 4 flour tortillas, large burrito size ones
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or mexican cheese
  • Chopped onion, tomato and cilantro for garnishing
  • 1 tbsp oil to cook chicken.
  1. Marinate chicken breasts in a ziplock bag with 4-6 tbsp of sauce. Make sure chicken breast is nicely coated with this sauce. Close ziplock bag and let it sit in fridge overnight or until ready to eat.
  2. When ready to eat, heat a oven safe skillet. Add oil and cook chicken breast on both sides until fully cooked through. Keep it aside and let it cool. Once cool enough to handle, chop it into pieces.
  3. I like to slice it first and then chop it into small pieces for my quesadilla pizza.
  4. Wipe the same oven safe skillet with a paper towel and then place one flour tortilla on a hot skillet. Spread a light layer of cheese and then spread the cooked peri peri chicken pieces. Drizzle with some more sauce and place another tortilla on top. Gently flip the whole thing once the bottom tortilla is cooked and crispy. Now cover the top of this quesadilla with good amount of shredded cheese and place this skillet in pre heated oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted through.
  5. Serve with a salad and enjoy this cheesy quesadilla pizza with a chilled beer!

If you want a VEGETARIAN option, you can marinate Paneer (Indian Cheese), Tofu or your choice of vegetables such as cauliflower, potatoes and use them in the same way!
