  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large, deep skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high heat. Slowly cook and stir onion until translucent. Mix in honey. Stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. Place remaining oil and chicken in the skillet over medium high heat. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in barbeque sauce and evenly coat chicken.
  4. Layer 4 tortillas individually with chicken, onions, Cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese. Top with remaining tortillas.
  5. One or two at a time, place layered tortillas on a large baking sheet. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Do not let tortillas become too crisp. Remove from heat. Cut into quarters to serve.

These quesadillas came out great! I did have to make some modifications though--I doubled the amount of cheese that the recipie called for and halved the onion and the baking time.

a tasty barbeque version of a mexican favorite. It was so easy to make and turned out very nicely. I used three chicken breasts instead of two for more meat. Great recipe.
