Deep Fried Chicken Quesadillas Recipe: Yeah that's right, we deep fried quesadillas and the results are nothing short of phenomenal!
Serves: 6 servings
  • 12 Fajita Size Tortillas (about 6 inches wide)
  • 3 Cups Monterey Jack Cheese (shredded)
  • 1 Bell Pepper (diced)
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 2 Cups Chicken (shredded)
  • 2 Cups Unseasoned Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Eggs
  • Salt and Pepper for Seasoning
  • Oil for Frying
  1. Saute the peppers and onions in a medium saucepan until onions are translucent and the peppers soften (5-7 mins).
  2. Add the chicken to warm it up (2 mins)
  3. Place 6 tortillas on a flat surface - add a small portion of chicken/pepper/onion and top with shredded cheese.
  4. Top each with the remaining tortillas.
  5. In a shallow pan (large enough to fit tortillas) beat the eggs.
  6. In another pan (same size) spread the bread crumbs.
  7. In a medium saucepan, heat the oil to 350 degrees.
  8. Dip the quesadillas in the egg on both sides then dip both sides into the bread crumbs.
  9. Fry each side for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
