6 Easy Steps: BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


  • One 3-ounce raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce
  • 1 large high-fiber flour tortilla
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced fat Mexican-blend cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  1. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with seasonings, and cook for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  2. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop. In a small bowl, coat chicken with BBQ sauce.
  3. Lay tortilla flat, and spread BBQ chicken onto one half. Top chicken with remaining ingredients.
  4. Clean skillet, if needed. Respray and return to medium-high heat. Cook the half-loaded tortilla for 2 minutes.
  5. Fold the bare tortilla half over the filling with a spatula, and press lightly to seal. Carefully flip and cook until crispy, about 3 minutes.
  6. Slice into wedges.
