Grilled BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Sweet BBQ sauce, melty cheese, and smoky grilled chicken = YUM. My husband likes to take these to work for a quick lunch.

Grilled BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Mix BBQ sauce, onion and cooked chicken. (For even more smoky flavor, grill chicken first.) Heat grill. Spray tortilla with cooking spray, and place on hot grill. (You could also use a lightly oiled skillet if desired.) On one half of the tortilla, top with shredded cheese, chicken mixture, and more shredded cheese. Use tongs to carefully fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling. Then carefully flip the folded tortilla with tongs or a spatula. Quesadilla is done when tortilla is grilled and cheese is melted.

Freezing Directions:

Prepare as above and allow to cool. Place in freezer bags, seal, label, and freeze. To serve: reheat in microwave until hot and cheese is melted. Or, you could prepare the quesadillas with filling and fold over, but do not grill. Flash freeze in a single layer, then place in freezer bags, and return to freezer. To cook, place on hot grill or oiled skillet and cook until both sides are slightly crisp and cheese is melted.

Servings: 5

    I would have never put these flavors together, but this has become one of our favorite meals! I cook the chicken in the crock pot with BBQ sauce to make prep even easier. Love this recipe…thanks!
