Often times we are looking for simple, quick meals for those busy week nights after a long days work. We don't always wanna eat out, but don't wanna spend hours in the kitchen. You know those days, right? I sure do! And we don't even have kids yet!
These quesadillas are that kinda meal. Super quick but still ultra tasty. The only prep work is slicing the pineapples and shredding the store-bought rotisserie chicken. You can't go wrong there!
We used a garlic and herb rotisserie chicken, I loved the seasoning on the crispy skin. We also used LaTortilla Factory hand-made chipotle corn tortillas. I do think I still prefer flour tortillas to corn though.
And we used my beloved Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce. You guys can use whatever kind of tortillas and bbq sauce you like! And if you prefer to make your own chicken instead of using the store-bought, definitely go for it.
So get ready for some super easy instructions.... Spread bbq sauce on the tortilla(s), then top with the chicken, pineapple slices, and cheese.
Place the other tortilla on top and cook in a skillet on medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side. You are basically just heating up the quesadilla, and melting that gooey cheese.
And no measurements here, just use however many tortillas you want... you will need at least two: one for the bottom and one for the top layer. Once cooked, you will slice it into smaller triangular quesadillas. We used 4 tortillas total.... which made two large round quesadillas, and we then sliced 4 small quesadillas from each, for a total of 8 small quesadillas.
Pineapple Chicken Quesadillas
adapted from For the Love of Cooking
- Chipotle corn tortillas
- Pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, chopped or shredded
- Fresh pineapple, thinly sliced
- Shredded pepper jack cheese
- Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce
- Sour cream, for topping
Spread bbq sauce over one tortilla, then top with the chicken, pineapple slices, and shredded cheese. Place another tortilla on top and put it in a hot skillet, greased with cooking spray, over medium heat for 3 minutes on one side. Then carefully flip, and cook the other side for 3 minutes. Remove the heat and let cool for a minute before slicing into individual quesadillas. Top with sour cream, if desired.
