BBQ Chicken Quesadilla:

This delicious quesadilla recipe requires only 5 ingredients! All you need are boneless skinless chicken breasts, your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce, tortillas, Mexican blend cheese, and some jalapenos (optional).

Start by marinating the chicken in the barbecue sauce. Then, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add some oil. Cook the chicken until it is no longer pink in the middle.

Once done, shred with two forks or chop into cubes. To assemble your quesadilla, lay out one tortilla on a flat surface and top with half of the cheese blend, jalapenos (if desired), cooked chicken, and remaining cheese blend.

Place another tortilla on top and press down slightly to adhere both layers together. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add some oil for cooking. Place the quesadillas onto the skillet one at a time and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until lightly golden brown. Slice each quesadilla into quarters with a pizza cutter and serve with additional BBQ sauce. Enjoy!
