BBQ Chicken Quesadillas


1/2 cup cooked rotisserie chicken, breast only
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons hickory smoked BBQ sauce
1/4 cup red onion, diced small
2 slices cooked center cut bacon, drained & crumbled
1/2 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar shredded cheese
2 low-fat whole grain tortilla wraps
Cooking spray

Pull apart the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Place in a bowl and mix with 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce. Lay the tortilla wraps on a clean surface. Working on half the wrap, spread with 1 tablespoon of BBQ sauce, then 1/4 cup of chicken, 2 Tablespoons of onion, 1 slice of crumbled bacon, and 1/4 cup of cheese. Fold in half. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Carefully add 1 quesadilla at a time to the pan. (Tip: place the fold towards the center of the pan and the opening towards the outside of the pan. This will make it easier to flip without spilling its contents.) Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Place finished quesadillas on a cutting board and cut into thirds. Serve with fresh salsa and low-fat sour cream, if desired.
