Two Peas and Their Pod: Cilantro Lime Chicken Quesidillas

Friday, October 24, 2008

Cilantro Lime Chicken Quesidillas



Quesidillas are always a hit at our place. We made them the other night when Josh's brother and his friend came over. Josh grilled up some chicken with a cilantro lime marinade. I don't partake of any meat products, but they all loved it! We also had black beans, pepper jack cheese, cilantro, red onions, tomatoes, avocado, and fresh salsa!! They were down right tasty. I made a salad with green apples, craisins, and feta with a balsamic dressing too. Another easy breezy meal at the Lichtys'!

I am not sure on Josh's exact marinade recipe, he never measures, but these
are the ingredients he used:

Olive oil
Lime zes
t and juice
Chopped cilantro
Salt
Pepper

He whisked the ingredients together in a bowl and brushed it on the chicken. Let the breasts sit for 20 minutes or so to soak up all of the goodness. Grill to perfection! Chop and enjoy inside a quesidilla with other tasty toppings! Or go the veggie route like I do:)









Also a big thanks to Nicole at Test Kitchen Recipes for the Kreativ Blogger award. We appreciate you thinking of us!



We would like to pass this award on to two fabulous blogs: Live Love Eat and Culinary Wannabe.

Oh, I wish I could be the type who doesn't measure (doesn't help that I bake more than I cook anyway); then I could make delicious, quick meals like you guys do! I should really try this one of these days. You could also just send me your share of the chicken! ;)
