Butterfly Quesadillas

Serves 4

Method:

STEP 1: Poach the chicken by placing the breast in a pot, and cover with cold water. Bring to a simmer, then turn down heat to low and poach for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside to cool.

STEP 2: Once the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred into bite sized pieces.

STEP 3: Place the four tortillas on a board and spread each half with 1 tsp BBQ sauce.

STEP 4: Divide shredded chicken evenly between the four tortilla halves, top each with two slices of avocado and 1 tbsp of shredded cheese.

STEP 5: Toast the tortillas in a sandwich press until the cheese has melted and they are golden on top.

STEP 6: Slice each quesadilla in half to form the butterfly wings.

STEP 7: Cut the cucumber into 2 long sticks and two small sticks, this will become the body of the butterfly. Do the same with the carrot.

STEP 8: Use a knife to carefully make an incision in the base of the tomato, slide one long carrot stick into the tomato incision. Make two small incisions at the top of the tomato, slide the two small cucumber sticks into the top.

STEP 9: Repeat with remaining tomato and vegetable sticks until you have four butterfly quesadillas.
