Recipe of the Week: Monterey Chicken Quesadillas

Looking for a quick, delicious meal for your family this week? Kate from Cooking During Stolen Moments, one of our Top 25 Foodie Moms, has shared one of her very favorite recipes with us.

Ingredients

1/2 lb. shredded or diced cooked chicken (She used one large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked in the oven)
3/4 c. barbecue sauce (bottled or homemade)

1/2 lb. bacon

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 c. shredded cheese (She used Monterrey Jack, but anything would work)

6 burrito-sized flour tortillas

Butter

Preparation

Combine chicken and barbecue sauce. Set aside.

Dice the bacon and add to a small skillet. Cook until desired crispness. Remove bacon from skillet with a slotted spoon to drain.

Add the sliced onion to the bacon grease in the skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes, until fully cooked. Remove onions with a slotted spoon and drain.

Build quesadillas – on a tortilla layer cheese, chicken, bacon, onion, more cheese and top with a second tortilla.

Cook quesadillas in a large skillet with melted butter.
