If you love the taste of Brie Cheese you will love these Chicken Quesadillas with Apricot Jam. Not your ordinary Quesadilla!
You don't often see recipes for Chicken Quesadillas with Apricot Jam. I don't use Brie Cheese in quesadillas very often as I prefer Gouda or Fontina Cheese, so this Chicken Quesadilla Recipe is a first for me on many levels.
Besides the Brie Cheese and the Apricot Jam used in this recipe, this is the first time I use spinach in a quesadilla. I know the combination sounds weird but you will be amazed at how good this savory quesadilla is. All the ingredients work really well together.
🧀 What is a Quesadilla
A quesadilla is a Mexican dish consisting of a tortilla that is filled primarily with cheese, and sometimes meats, beans, and spices, and then cooked on a griddle. Traditionally, a corn tortilla is used, but it can also be made with a flour tortilla, particularly in northern Mexico and the United States. You can read more about it here Quesadilla - Wikipedia.
💭 Ingredient Substitutions
The flavor of the Brie Cheese goes really well with the apricot jam. I would recommend not substituting it but if you must, just make sure you use a cheese that melts well like Fontina or Gouda. You can, however, substitute the Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas for regular Flour Tortillas without affecting the overall flavor of these Quesadillas.
