  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, gluten free
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cup broccoli, florets
  • 1/2 pound chicken thigh, boneless, skinless
  • 4 medium tortilla, whole wheat
  • 2 ounce cheddar cheese


  • Mince garlic and add to a small bowl. Add soy sauce, water, sesame oil, brown sugar (2 tablespoons of honey may be substituted here) and cornstarch; whisk together and set aside.
  • Bring a medium pot of water to boil and add the broccoli. Boil for 5 minutes, then add to a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
  • Spray a medium, non-stick skillet with cooking spray; add chicken and heat over medium-high. Brown on both sides, cooking until no longer pink in the center; chop or shred as desired.
  • Drain broccoli and add to the skillet with the chicken; turn heat down to medium-low. Gently pour in the garlic mixture and heat about 5 minutes until thickened. Toss together until everything is well coated and heated through; remove from heat. (If mixture seems to thick or sticky, add 1-2 tablespoons of water for a thinner consistency).
  • Heat a separate sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  • Place 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture on one half of a tortilla. Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the chicken, then fold the tortilla in half to cover the chicken and cheese.
  • Cook quesadilla on both sides until cheese is melted and tortilla is slightly browned. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Cut each quesadilla into triangles and serve.
