Recipe of the Week: Monterey Chicken Quesadillas

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.


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



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.
