Recipe: BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

This delicious spin on a Quesadilla is easy to make .. and one everyone will love.   BBQ sauce, chicken, bacon smothered in cheddar cheese… what’s not to love?

This quick and easy recipe makes for great weeknight dinner or even a weekend lunch.  Serve it with some fries and coleslaw…  lip smackin’ good!


I made this with my Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce.. you can use that recipe or your favorite BBQ sauce.
Any cooked chicken will work.. or.. you can simply bake boneless skinless chicken breasts smothered in BBQ Sauce.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through… it’s as easy as that.

Don’t make the chicken too soupy .. otherwise you’ll have a mess.. add just enough to make the chicken wet with BBQ sauce.  Serve additional BBQ sauce with the quesadillas.

Don’t over do the chicken either.. otherwise if it’s too heavy they will fall apart when making them in the Quesadilla maker or trying to flip them in a skillet.

Make the bacon in the oven.. it’s easy and clean up is a snap.  Click here for the instructions.

Use 8 inch tortillas.. the smaller ones are easier to handle.

Cheddar works wonderfully.. but if you prefer a Colby Jack mixture better.. that will work also.

Try it.. you’ll like it!
