Air Fryer Chicken Quesadilla Ingredients:

  • 2 corn tortillas gluten-free
  • 3 tablespoons guacamole
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup (about 100g) cooked chicken breast cubed


Air Fryer Chicken Quesadilla Recipe Instructions:

  • Preheat air fryer to 325 F / 170 C.
  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with olive oil.
  • Set the first tortilla inside the basket. Then spread on the guacamole, add the cheese and chicken and then top with the second tortilla.
  • Use a toothpick to hold the top tortilla in place during cooking.
  • Cook for 6-10 mins (depending on how crispy you like them), carefully flipping the quesadilla over halfway through.
  • Remove from the air fryer, cut and serve.


Recipe Tips

  • Use a toothpick to hold down the top tortilla. Or you can place the metal trivet that comes with the air fryer on top to keep it in place during cooking.
  • I use corn tortillas in this recipe, as we prefer to make these gluten-free. But you can swap in flour tortillas instead.
  • Store any leftover tortillas in the freezer. Then just defrost for about 15 mins when needed.
