The Weekend Chef: BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas

This is a recipe that I had planned on making and had my husband, a.k.a., "The Weekend Chef" make us for dinner last weekend.  We haven't had a quesadilla in awhile, especially since our quesadilla maker broke.  There wasn't a lot of cooking to this recipe, but more of a lot of prep work.  The kids love pineapple.  Mixed with the chicken and bbq sauce this ended up being a sweet and tasty quesadilla.  We all enjoyed it a lot!  And really, all the quesadilla maker does is cut the tortilla and semi-seal the filling into little triangle pieces. 

BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas
recipe from Kate's Recipe Box via Jenny's Cooking Journey

1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup diced pineapple
1cup jalapeno jack cheese, shredded
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
8 large tortillas

In a small frying pan, brown the chicken pieces over medium heat. When cooked through, add in barbecue sauce and stir to coat. Remove chicken to a small bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.

Add pineapple to pan and cook until warmed through. Remove to a small bowl.

On a skillet, place a tortilla. Cover with a layer of the cheeses and top with chicken and pineapple. When the cheese starts to melt, place second tortilla on top. When browned on the bottom, flip over.

Remove to a cutting board and let cool for 3 minutes before cutting.

Family Rating: 2 thumbs up.
