• 8 flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons mustard (I used a pinot noir horseradish and it was delightful)
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Gouda cheese
  • 1 grilled boneless chicken breast or a few thighs, chopped into bite-size pieces


  1. Prepare grill for high heat.
  2. Brush oil onto one side of tortilla, and place on a plate with oil side down. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon mustard on the top side, and top with green onion, apple slices, chicken, and about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Place a second tortilla on top, and brush the top with olive oil. Repeat with remaining ingredients, stacking the quesadillas on the plate.
  3. Brush the grilling surface with oil and place the quesadillas carefully on the grill. Grill for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is crisp. Flip, and grill on the other side until crisp. Remove from grill to serving plates and cut into quarters. Serve warm.

Note: You can use a skillet to cook the quesadillas if you do not have access to a grill. Also, try using different flavored Gouda cheese or different varieties of
cheese. Tomato basil Gouda tastes wonderful with this recipe.
