directions

for tortillas
In a large bowl, mix whole wheat flour and salt and gradually add water to form a semi-soft, elastic dough. Cover it with a cotton kitchen towel and rest for 10 minutes. Form 2-inch balls, dust some flour on the board, and flatten each ball evenly with a rolling pin. Heat a pan on medium-high flame and cook both sides of tortilla until light brown spots are formed.
for chicken filling
Marinate chicken for 10 minutes with worcestershire sauce, mustard sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red chili, crushed black pepper, hot sauce, and salt. Heat a pan on medium-high flame with oil and saute the marinated chicken until it is fully cooked.
for assembling
Lightly butter one side of tortilla over a heated pan on low-medium flame. Layer mixed cheese, chicken, red pepper, onion, and cover with another tortilla. Turn over and make the quesadillas as crispy as you like. Garnish with scallion and serve hot.
