Very Easy


Number of serving: 2
2 cups shredded chicken

6 ounces BBQ Sauce

2 1/2 cups shredded smoked cheddar

8 taco sized whole wheat tortillas

extra virgin olive oil

1 granny smith apple

1/2 jalapeno

1/4 cup diced red onion

1 clove garlic

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1 lime


  • Pre heat oven to 350F. Lightly oil 2 baking sheets. Toss shredded chicken with BBQ Sauce, taste and add salt & pepper as necessary. Set aside.
  • Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Lightly oil with olive oil. Place 1 tortilla in the heated pan and warm until lightly browned, flip and repeat on opposite side. Place warmed tortillas in a clean kitchen towel until ready to assemble.
  • To assemble, place two tortillas side by side on baking sheet. Layer each tortilla with 1/4 cup or more shredded cheese, 1/2 cup chicken mixture, 1/4 cup cheese and a warmed tortilla. A baking sheet will hold 2 assembled quesadillas comfortably.
  • Place in heated oven and bake for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted. While the first sheet bakes, assemble the other 2 quesadillas. Remove the cooked quesadillas from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Cut into quarters with a pizza cutter and serve with green apple salsa.
  • Toss all of the ingredients in a bowl and let sit to allow the flavors to marry. Serve with BBQ chicken quesadilla.
