Directions

  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.

Always looking for different ways to fix chicken. Found this one with chicken and BBQ sauce as main ingredients. My husband, a very picky eater, loved it. Have now made it several times using whatever cheese Is on hand and adding more veggies to chicken mixture (onions, chopped spinach). Tonight I fixed it for my grandsons and they loved it too. Served it with fruit saled, corn, and guacamole and chips on the side for a full meal. A big hit with all..

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, so I did a stack of three, spread a bit of chicken, etc., inside each layer, and cut them into wedges to serve. It all turned out just fine! I'll definitely make this again!

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.
