In the Kitchen with Jason: BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Our George Foreman grill came with quesadilla plates so making this recipe was extra easy for us, but I will include the non-GF instructions for those of you whom will be making this on the stove top (or with your hot plate).

  • 2 8-inch tortillas
  • 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Quesadilla maker instructions
  • Place a tortilla on the maker.
  • Spread the BBQ over the tortilla.
  • Spread the chicken over the BBQed tortilla.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over the chickened, BBQed tortilla.
  • Put your other tortilla over the cheesed, chickened, BBQed tortilla.
  • Close your quesadilla maker.
  • Twiddle your thumbs for about 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Cut along the provided separation lines and enjoy.
Frying pan instructions
  • Spray a 9-inch frying pan with cooking spray.
  • Heat pan over medium-high heat.
  • Follow previous list of directions in preparing the quesadilla.
  • After you place the top on it, let it cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Carefully, flip it over and cook the second side for an additional 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Cut into either 6 or 8 wedges and enjoy.
  • This recipe makes 2 servings.
  • Each serving is about 140 calories
  • You can easily make multiples of this recipe.
  • This recipe can be found in the Eat What You Love cookbook.
One full quesadilla is the same number of calories as a candy bar. Who is ever going to eat candy again when they can have this? Not me. Jess and I ate one full quesadilla each for dinner, and it was more than filling all on its own.

Please enjoy!

I was skimming through older posts and saw this. Love (and miss) BBQ Quesadillas. But it's funny, I read non-GF instructions as non-gluten-free so I got excited for a minute, without realizing that you'd JUST said George Foreman. I'm ridiculous.

Hehe, that's funny! These are super good, though, even though the pic doesn't really do them justice. Let us know if you try them!!!
