From the Test Kitchen

We’re filling these flavorful quesadillas with monterey jack cheese and chicken cooked in our korma sauce––an Indian cuisine staple made from a blend of aromatics, coconut cream, cashew butter, and traditional spices like garam masala. For a hearty complement, we're serving it all alongside roasted carrots and poblano tossed in lime juice and pickled mustard seeds.

Tips from Home Chefs

Prepare & roast the vegetables
1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the carrot pieces and pepper pieces on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roast 16 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

Meanwhile, quarter the lime. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. In a bowl, combine the sour cream and the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper.

Make the pickled mustard seeds
3 Make the pickled mustard seeds

Meanwhile, in a small pot, combine the mustard seeds, sugar, vinegar, and 3 tablespoons of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Carefully transfer to a large heatproof bowl.

4 Cook & finish the chicken

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Add the korma sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thickened and the chicken is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Transfer to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Assemble & cook the quesadillas
5 Assemble & cook the quesadillas

Place the tortillas on a work surface. Top one half of each tortilla with the grated cheese and finished chicken and sauce; fold the tortillas in half over the filling. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the quesadillas. Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping). Transfer to a cutting board and immediately season with salt. Carefully cut in half.

6 Finish the vegetables & serve your dish

Transfer the roasted vegetables to the bowl of pickled mustard seeds; add the juice of the remaining lime wedges. Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked quesadillas with the finished vegetables. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Serve the lime sour cream on the side. Enjoy!
