BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

8 Sep

Here in the Midwest we get a short season to grill, therefore we do it a lot in the summer. With all that grilling comes leftovers. Honestly, my family isn’t all that excited to eat the leftovers and I am not all excited to waste food. So that leaves me some creativity to turn yesterdays leftovers into something my family will enjoy. Let’s get started!

Here are last nights BBQ chicken breasts. I took them straight from the fridge
and removed the meat from the bone and chopped it into a bite sized dice.
Ingredients:
2 chicken breasts- 2 plum tomatoes diced- 1 small onion diced- shredded lettuce-
burrito sized flour tortillas- Provolone and an Italian shredded blend cheeses-
Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce- and some non stick spray.
Heat a skillet over med heat and spray with some non stick spray
(I have used butter it works great I was just trying to save a few calories).
Add a tortilla and sprinkle with your favorite cheese ( I made one quesadilla with an
Italian cheese blend and another with Provolone slices. Both were good but the
Provolone was best). Sprinkle with some chopped onion.
Add enough chicken to evenly cover the tortilla. Squeeze some BBQ sauce all
over the chicken. I didn’t measure but approximately 3-4 Tablespoons of
sauce. Definitely just add all ingredients to your taste.
Add some tomatoes and more cheese. Top with another tortilla and cook
4-5 minutes per side or until tortilla is crispy and cheese is melted.

*Since it can be tricky to flip without a lot of fall out you can just use one
tortilla. Just make like above but go lighter on the filling and flip one side of the tortilla
over so the edges meet.*

I cut it using a pizza cutter. Just like that…You have a crispy, cheesy, BBQ
Quesadilla! I like to top mine with shredded lettuce. YUM! This recipe made 2 large
quesadillas and 2 half quesadillas.
Recipe
*Yields 2 large and 2 half quesadillas
2 chicken breasts
2 plum tomatoes diced
1 small onion diced
shredded lettuce
burrito sized flour tortillas (I used a total of 6)
Shredded Italian cheese blend (or your favorite)
Provolone (or your favorite)
BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce)
Non stick cooking spray
Heat skillet over Medium heat and spray with non stick spray. Lay tortilla in pan and add cheese. Evenly top tortilla with chicken and add BBQ sauce. Sprinkle with tomatoes and top with more cheese. Lay another tortilla on top of the ingredients and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until tortilla is crispy and cheese is melted. Cut with pizza cutter and serve with your favorite toppings.
This was a big hit with my family! Definitely going on the please make again list! Just like with most of my recipes you can personalize it to your tastes. This would be delicious with some grilled green peppers and mushrooms!
If you are cooking more then 2 quesadillas I would put a foiled lined baking pan in a warm oven to keep the finished quesadillas warm until you are ready to serve. Also, you can cook 2-3 quesadillas at a time on a large griddle.
I hope you enjoy this delicious easy recipe! Thanks for stopping by!
