Instructions

1. Preheat Flat Iron® to Medium Heat.

2. In a large bowl, mix together chicken pieces, desired oil and all seasonings until every piece is coated.

3. Add chicken to griddle and saute 5-7 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned. Add lime juice and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from griddle.

4. In a small bowl, combine ingredients 10-15 for the mango salsa.

5. On a plate or tray, begin to assemble the quesadillas. Sprinkle cheese to fully cover half of a flour tortilla, add seasoned chicken and salsa, top with more cheese and fold.

6. Reheating the griddle to Medium Heat, add 2 Tbsp of butter and allow it to melt down. Place tortillas on top of butter and flip every 2 minutes until cheese is melted and both sides reach desired crispiness.

7. Serve warm.
