  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a medium saucepan lightly salted water to a boil; add chicken breasts and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and gently simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 15 minutes. Drain.
  3. Let chicken cool until it can be easily handled. Shred chicken with your hands; return to empty sauce pan. Stir barbeque sauce, parsley, and garlic into chicken.
  4. Lay 4 tortillas on a baking sheet. Evening spread chicken mixture among the 4 tortillas, leaving a 1-inch border around the outer edge. Top each tortilla with 1/4 tomatoes and 1/4 Cheddar cheese. Place another tortilla atop each filled tortilla.
  5. Bake quesadillas in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, 5 to 7 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.

Thanks for a simply and yummy recipe! I had to leave some things out (since I didn't have any parsley or tomatoes) and added some sauteed onions (since I love onions). I was short on tortillas, ...

great way to use up leftover shredded chicken, mine baked in 8 minutes, used pepper jack cheese to add a little zing.

Something that makes it even more amazing is to swirl the bbq sauce with ranch dressing. Sounds weird, but SO GOOD! The tomato flavor doesn't fit quite as well though.

These were a big hit. I had leftover BBQ chicken from another recipe and this was the perfect recipe to use it in! Thanks for the recipe, belizza!

very yummy! My kids and I enjoyed it and I especially loved them dipped in sour cream :) I was unsure if we would like the outcome of a quesadilla done in the oven, but it was nice and crispy!...

I thought these were tasty and simple. Maybe throw some red onion in there because it is always good with BBQ chicken. I had these with rice, guacamole and sour cream.
