Asian Chicken Quesadillas with Thai Peanut Sauce

So this is a spin-off of another recipe “Asian Chicken Wraps with Thai Peanut Sauce”. I had four tortillas and most of the ingredients for this, so I thought “Perfect”!

However the tortillas were smaller…to small for this recipe. So I made do!

The nutrition reflects medium La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortillas (medium) at 50 calories apiece, and no edame. I am scared of cooking with edame. I also used some angel hair slaw from King Soopers. This was served with Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan.

Ingredients

[For the Sauce]
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Sriracha or similar spicy chili sauce
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
[For the Chicken Wraps]
14 ounces RedBird All Natural Chicken Breast, or another brand with fat trimmed (about 2 medium breasts)
1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil, divided
1 cups angel hair slaw
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup dry roasted salted peanuts, chopped
Chopped fresh cilantro
4 whole wheat tortillas (La Tortilla Low Carb)

Directions

In a small bowl, stir together all of the sauce ingredients: peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, Sriracha, ginger, and lime. Set aside.

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Heat half of the oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium high. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chicken (be careful as the oil may splatter), and sauté the chicken until fully cooked, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a bowl and blot away any excess oil. To the bowl, add 1/4 cup of the peanut sauce, then toss to coat the chicken. Reserve the rest of the sauce for serving.

To the same skillet in which you cooked the chicken, add the remaining oil and let warm for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli slaw, edamame, carrots, and half of the green onions and sauté until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

To assemble wraps, spread a spoonful of the reserved sauce on each tortilla. Top with the chicken, vegetables, chopped peanuts, remaining green onions, and fresh cilantro. Wrap and enjoy warm or at room temperature.
