Barbecue Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas

Barbecue Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas

You are going to love these barbecue chicken and pineapple quesadillas! You couldn’t ask for a quicker or easier meal – and of course I wouldn’t be posting it if it didn’t taste great!

We love quesadillas around here, the cheesier the better, and recently I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest to try this barbecue chicken and pineapple version. To make them you just sandwich some chicken, cheese, pineapple and barbecue sauce inside two tortillas, heat over the stove, and serve!

Don’t be fooled by how simple they are to make – they’re absolutely delicious. I normally cook up enough chicken to have these for two days in a row, and we never get tired of them.  They are warm, cheesy, and full of flavor – definitely one of our new favorite recipes. 🙂

Other excellent quesadilla options that I’ve made include versions with chicken and spinach, chicken, roasted poblano, and corn, and grilled vegetable!
