I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Honey-Lime-Cilantro-Chicken-Quesadillas

It's easy to make, tastes great and is low cal (236 calories).   If you don't like the whole wheat low carb tortilla, buy a flour tortilla or better yet make your own.  I also use this marinate just for grilled chicken.



HONEY-LIME-CILANTRO-CHICKEN-QUESADILLAS
(serves 4)

Ingredients:
*12 ounces boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, cut into pieces
*1 lime, juiced & zested
*2 teaspoons honey
*1 teaspoon olive oil
*1 garlic clove, minced
*1 tablespoon yellow onion, minced
*1 teaspoon dried cilantro
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/8 teaspoon black pepper
*dash of cayenne pepper
*1 tomato, diced small
*1 cup reduced fat cheddar shredded cheese
*4 whole-wheat-low-carb tortillas

Directions:
~Place the zest & the juice of the lime in a zip-loc bag.
~Mix in honey, olive oil, garlic, onion, cilantro, salt, black pepper & cayenne pepper.
~Add cut up chicken & marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
~Cook chicken on a griddle over medium-high heat, until done.
~Place chicken, tomato & cheese on a tortilla.
~Fold in half and spray with a cooking spray.
~Cook on griddle over medium heat until golden brown, flip and cook other side until golden brown.

Variations:
