hey guys welcome to Protein Treats today
we are making a super easy yummy supper
treat for you
quesadillas I’m going to show you how
easy it is to make these high protein
and low carb and actually have a healthy
quesadilla so stick around alright make
your chicken quesadillas what you’re
going to need is about a cup of diced
cooked chicken I’ve used chicken breasts
here and then I’ve got about half a cup
or a little bit more than that of sweet
pepper so I’ve got red peppers and
yellow peppers and I have a little over
a quarter cup of diced red onion and
then I have about two cups not quite of
shredded cheese and I’m going to
actually add and coat my shredded cheese
with some natural Nutralean that’s
what’s going to give us the extra
protein and the fiber so we feel really
super full now I’m going to start by
frying up my chicken and my vegetables
in my pan now I’m using a cast-iron
skillet because those are better for you
than the non-stick pans and I’ve already
pre-seasoned it I’ve got some avocado
oil which has a really high flash point
so avocado oil is great to cook with so
I’m just going to throw in my veggies
and my chicken here and I’m going to go
ahead and fry those up now my chickens
already been pre-cut it’s already cooked
chicken so I’m really just browning
everything lightly and I want to see
that my onions are clear all the way
through and then I’m going to put them
back into another container and we’re
going to use that to the filling for our
quesadillas
now if you want you can always add a
little bit of your natural Nutralean
right to your can so I’m just going to
add not quite half a scoop here I’m just
going to sprinkle it over top just
lightly just like you would with some
seasonings and then go ahead and stir
that up so it’s evenly coated alright
now that our chicken and all our veggies
are perfectly cooked I’m just going to
transfer them here to a bowl I’m just
going to set this aside and the trick to
having your quesadillas of course is
we’re using a low-carb tortilla the
brand on these ones happens to be mama
Lupe and they’re about I believe for net
grams of carbohydrate in each one and
they’re pretty high in fiber and they’re
perfect for making your quesadillas okay
so the trick is to take your cheese and
I throw my grated cheese into a bowl
here and then I’m going to add again a
scoop of natural Nutralean right
into right into my shredded cheese and
it will coat your shredded cheese just
perfectly and that’s what’s going to
help you to feel so full you’re not
eating tons of quesadillas you’re going
to eat your one serving and then you’re
going to feel full for hours here we go
I’m going to take my low-carb tortilla
make sure that my pan is on and heating
and I am using a nonstick pan for this
one just because I find it harder to do
with the wrought iron pan I’m going to
make sure I have it sprayed really well
I’m using an olive oil instead of a seed
oil so when you start to build your
quesadilla throw it on like this and
start with your cheese on one side and
put a little layer of cheese nice and
even across it and then you’re going to
take your mixture that you cooked up a
little bit earlier
and go ahead and put that over the top
just like that you can make it pretty
much as full as you want now I’m going
to add a little bit more cheese on top
that’s what’s going to make it stick
really nicely together I’m going to fold
it in half just like that
once your cheese is starting to melt really
well you can go ahead and flip it to the
other side and cook it up so it’s golden
brown now if you’re not going to do it
on the frying pan like I am the other
way I like to do it is in the oven so if
you turn your oven on at 450 degrees and
do it for both 15 minutes on parchment
paper you can also bake your quesadillas
instead of frying them
and the great thing about doing
quesadillas this way with your little
curved tortillas is it’s perfect for
leftovers so if you’ve leftover steak
leftover hamburger even you can make a
quesadilla with almost anything you have
in your fridge once you’re ready
flip it over so everything’s nice and
melted in the middle and look at that it
could be any easier we’ve got a perfect
absolutely perfect quesadilla all right
look at this I’m going to cut one of
these up and we’re going to have to give
it a try these are so good look at that
ooie gooie full of cheese but also full of
fiber and protein so you feel so full
this is a decadent treat that’s actually
healthy for you I think I’m going to
have to give it a try here mmm oh this
is so good it’s like crunchy on the
outside got melted cheese on the inside
you’ve got your chicken you’ve got your
veggies you’ve got your protein and
perfect for it go ahead and use some
Greek yogurt put some natural neutral e
in it and some salsa and you’ve got
perfect depth for an absolutely sublime
treat this is really good I can’t wait
to hear how it turned out for you guys
