Yum...a Tasty Barbecue Chicken Quesadilla

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Babycat

I created this version of a quesadilla after searching recipezaar for a barbecue chicken quesadilla. When I didn't find one, I ended up making this relatively simple quesadilla that is quick, easy, and a kid pleaser.

I really enjoyed the combination of barbecue sauce, chicken and cheese. I'll definitely make this recipe again! When I made my quesadillas, I did not use mushrooms, and I added a little bit of cumin, cayenne and hot sauce to spice it up a bit. Instead of using a frying pan, I used a mini grill. The presentation was excellent. Next time, I might try adding a little shrimp and cocktail sauce to do a shrimp quesadilla variant.
