      We really enjoyed this variation of quesadillas. I seasoned my chicken with some onion powder and garlic to give more flavor. It was delicious. I think next time I am going to add jerk seasoning to the chicken to give even more flavor! Thank you for posting this great recipe!!

      These were a cool variation on quesadillas. I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand, though I'm sure it would have been good and I used canadian bacon. I also used crushed pineapple instead of pineapple preserves and dribbled some Pickapeppa sauce across the filling, as well as on the side for dipping. Really nice flavors - though for my family's preferences, I think I would use monterey jack cheese next time instead of swiss. Thanks for sharing!

      Haven't yet been to the right store to get pineapple preserves, so I made my own by adding a well-drained [squeezed & blotted!!] small can of crushed pineapple to some apricot pineapple preserves! The cooked chicken I had was shredded, & that worked fine, too! The result was a very tasty meal for 4 of us! This is definitely on my 'to make again & again' list! Thanks for posting it!
