These BBQ Chicken Quesadillas are a fun twist on traditional quesadillas. Made with chicken breast, BBQ sauce, cheese, red onion and cilantro on a high fiber whole wheat tortilla.

Ingredients

  • One 3-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp BBQ sauce with 45 calories or less per 2-tbsp. serving (plus more for serving)
  • 1 large high-fiber flour tortilla with 110 calories or less (I used Ole Xtreme)
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • nonstick spray

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop. In a small bowl, coat chicken with BBQ sauce.
  • Lay tortilla flat, and spread BBQ chicken onto one half. Top chicken with remaining ingredients.
  • Clean skillet, if needed. Respray and return to medium-high heat. Cook the half-loaded tortilla for 2 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Slice into wedges.
