Ingredients for Easy Air Fryer Chicken Quesadilla + Stove top:

  1. 2 gluten-free corn tortillas
  2. 3 tbsp guacamole
  3. 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
  4. 1/2 cup (about 100g) cooked, cubed chicken breast

Instructions for Easy Air Fryer Chicken Quesadilla + Stove top:

  • Set the temperature of the air fryer to 325 F/170 C.
  • Mist the air fryer basket with a small amount of olive oil.
  • Place the initial tortilla within the basket. After that, spread the guacamole, top with the second tortilla, cheese, and chicken.
  • To keep the top tortilla in place while it cooks, use a toothpick.
  • Cook for 6 to 10 minutes, or until they are as crispy as you prefer, carefully turning the quesadillas halfway through.
  • After taking out of the air fryer, slice and serve.
Notes: Recipe Hints
  • Hold down the top tortilla with a toothpick. Alternatively, to keep the air fryer stationary during cooking, you can set the metal trivet that comes with it on top.
  • Because we like to make enchiladas gluten-free, I use corn tortillas in this recipe. However, flour tortillas can be used in their place.
  • Any extra tortillas should be frozen. Then, when needed, simply thaw for 15 minutes.
