Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), over a high heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for 3 min on each side or until browned

Meanwhile, drain and rinse the black beans

2 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Once browned, add the smoked paprika and cayenne (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the pan and cook for 1 min further

Reduce the heat to medium, add the drained black beans, soy sauce and 150ml [250ml] warm water

Cover with a lid and cook for 12-15 min or until the chicken is fully cooked through (no pink meat!)

3 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Whilst the chicken is cooking, grate the cheddar cheese

4 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Once the chicken is done, transfer to a clean board and shred it apart, using two forks – this technique is known as ‘pulling’

Mash the beans until smooth – these are your refried beans

5 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Add the grated cheese and shredded chicken to the refried beans and give everything a good mix up – this is your chicken & bean mix

Divide the chicken & bean mix between the tortilla wraps

Fold each tortilla wrap over so you're left with 6 half moon-shaped sandwiches

6 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Add the folded tortilla wraps to a baking tray

Place a second baking tray on top of the tortilla baking tray to weigh it down slightly

Put the stacked baking trays in the oven and cook for 15 min or until the tortillas are slightly browned and the cheese is melted – these are your chicken & bean quesadillas

7 Chicken & Bean Quesadillas With Zesty Slaw

Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise and chipotle paste with a pinch of salt – this is your chipotle mayo

Top, tail, peel and grate the carrot[s]

Grate the apple[s], then trim and finely slice the spring onion[s]

Slice the lime[s] into wedges

In a bowl combine the grated carrot, apple, spring onion, a good squeeze of lime and a pinch of salt – this is your zesty slaw
