An attempt to copy Rock Ola Grille's fabulous chicken quesadillas! After having many quesadillas in several restaurants this is absolutely the best! The flavor just can't be beat. Melt in your mouth! Easy!

Just a tip, great recipe, but do not ever flip, after browning the one side in skillet, place Quesadillia on a cookie sheet and put under broiler to brown the top! Yummy

really lovely recipe. I was cooking for a friend that was working late, so I made up the mix and when she came I rolled it like a burrito. (mind you, Mexican food is scarce here in Oz) I didnt have barbeque sauce, so I just used a bit of tomato sauce, (ketchup) and they reported this afternoon that the meal was excellent! I actually did mine like a Quesadilla, and I found it hard to toss too :) but taste wise it was great. I did tomato sauce and chilli sauce on mine. THEN, (not over yet) I had a little leftover mix, so I made myself a wrap for lunch. this really has to be one of the most versatile recipes in my cookbook! (still not finished) I did peel the tomato, and used some green spring onion tops, as I only had one red onion, and was cooking for a crowd. made for the Aussie swap, may 2010

These are wonderful a different take on the more traditional Quesadillas I make, but yummo. My son immediately said 5 stars mum these are great. I made with larger tortillas than listed just preference as always end up stuffing my Quesadillas with to much filling and thought it would just fall out of a small one. I love the chicken, BBQ sauce combo it is just perfect. This super quick and easy to make and we will enjoy this one often. Big thumbs up by all the family Seasoned Cook
